AOKZOE Launches A1 Pro Handheld Gaming Console
AOKZOE is set to launch its latest handheld gaming console, the A1 Pro, with an early bird sale starting tomorrow. Early adopters can purchase the baseline version for just $799, with the price increasing to $999 later on at retail. The A1 Pro is the first handheld gaming device to feature an AMD 7 7840U APU, which is a customized version of the AMD Z1 processor series. The current AOKZOE A1 model is powered by an older AMD Ryzen 7 6800U APU, which was used in various laptops and mobile gaming devices in 2022. The A1 Pro models are powerful enough to compete with Valve's Steam Deck and the ASUS ROG Ally handheld system, with AOKZOE claiming that the Pro offers a 20% performance increase over the previous generation devices (6800U).
The A1 Pro features a Zen 4-based Ryzen 7 7840U APU, which is part of the "Phoenix" range of mobile processors. All configurations of the A1 Pro include the APU, with the base model offering 32 GB of memory and 512 GB of storage, and the headliner boasting 64 GB of memory and 2 TB of storage. The A1 Pro utilizes LPDDR5-6400 RAM and PCIe 3.0 x4 standards, and is capable of running M.2 2280 PCIe 4.0 drives. The handheld system features an 8-inch FHD (1920 x 1200) IPS display, which is larger than its nearest rivals' 7-inch screens. The A1 Pro's pair of analog sticks also feature hall effect sensor technology, making it a great choice for hardcore game controller enthusiasts.
AOKZOE claims that the A1 Pro delivers lightning-fast speed with its AMD 7 Series flagship CPU, which is equivalent to the i7-12700H. The Ryzen 7 7840U APU has 8 CPU cores and 16 threads, with a 3.3 GHz base clock speed that can boost to a maximum of 5.1 GHz. The APU's integrated Radeon 780M GPU (RDNA 3-based) has 12 Compute Units (6 physical CUs) with a maximum frequency of 2200 MHz. The AMD iGPU is capable of reaching 8.6 TFLOPs (FP32), making it adept at achieving impressive frame rates and resolutions when running a variety of triple-A titles.
