Your PC or Laptop is having trouble running cyberpunk 2077? For the portable console AYA NEO this is soft. With AMD Ryzen 5 4500U and costing only US$ 699 (R$ 3.700), this laptop manages to give a glimpse of what a “Nintendo Switch 2” would be when running today's heaviest games.
The complete specifications of AYA NEO are:
- AMD Ryzen 5 4500U Processor
- Radeon RX Vega 6 GPU
- 16G RAM LPDDR4x
- 512 NVME SSD
- 7 inch touchscreen
- 47Wh battery
- Windows 10
- 1.1 TFLOPs de performance
The screen resolution is “only” 1.280 x 800 pixels. It may seem ridiculous at first, but it's worth remembering that lowering the "in-game" resolution is a technique that many mobile game developers hide from you.
That said, another thing the AYA NEO does very well is managing its massive battery. Of course, AMD Ryzen 5 and Vega 6 can go beyond 30 FPS in several heavy games like Cyberpunk 2077, but according to the Taki Udon channel, going up more frames will quickly drain the battery, which would go away in less than 2 hours.https://youtu.be/JX52EnF77EU
In the video above, channel user Taki Udon can run the following games: Witcher 3, Dark Souls 3, Resident Evil 3, Sekiro, Destiny 2, Far Cry New Dawn, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Fallout 4, Monster Hunter World and of course, cyberpunk 2077.
It is evident that the notebook runs these heavy games on the “low” video setting, in order to get at least 2 hours of battery life. But for a portable device it's impressive to have these games always at hand.
It is worth remembering that the AYA NEO is not the only device of this type with a strong configuration. GPD also launched the GPD Win 3 and Win Max on the Indiegogo website for crowdfunding. Both with that claim to be a “Switch with Windows 10”. The news here is that it is the only one with Ryzen 5 and Vega 6.
Manufacturer AYA launched the NEO campaign on Indiegogo and it was a success. The company estimates that it will start shipping the laptops in April 2021, but has yet to reveal the full pricing and configurations that will be available. Currently, the company has only confirmed that the Super Early Bird sponsor price is $699. AYA will price the NEO prices between that amount and $799.
