AYANEO 2 console with AMD Ryzen 7 6800U APU officially launched in September

AYANEO 2 now has a release date

In the usual way, AYANEO’s CEO and designers gave a 5-hour update on upcoming products. This update mainly focused on the AYANEO Air and AYANEO 2 handheld game consoles.

The company has confirmed that AYANEO Air will start shipping starting today (although it’s Sunday) to early backers and media for reviews. This console is an OLED-based handheld device with a Ryzen 5000 APU. But the focus is now turning to more capable products, such as the Ryzen 6000-based AYANEO 2.

The company has also given an update on the release date of the AYANEO 2 product. It’s officially coming at the end of September with mass shipments planned for October. A rolling launch is typical for publicly funded devices.

Here’s a reminder that AYANEO 2 is based on an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor with 8 cores, 16 threads featuring the updated Zen3+ architecture. Most importantly, it contains 12 RDNA2 compute units, 50% more than Steam Deck. This will be the company’s first console to be based on this graphics architecture.

According to AYANEO, this device will be the first 6800U Windows handheld with a “full screen” design, which means much smaller bezels than similar devices. Speaking of the display, the company today confirmed that the AYANEO 2 has a Full HD IPS display, so the original device’s 720p panel has been upgraded.

It is also worth noting that AYANEO 2 is not the flagship device. The company has already outlined its plans for the AYANEO Next 2, a larger device that houses both analog sticks, buttons and also touchpads similar to Steam Deck.
