AMD Ryzen 7 7840U in action

AOKZEO shares first-party benchmark for their upcoming A1 Pro console. 

The A1 Pro is among the few handheld gaming consoles to feature AMD Ryzen 7040U low-power series that was announced earlier this week. This new Ryzen processor, codenamed “Phoenix”, is built upon the Zen4 and RDNA3 architectures, bringing AMD’s latest innovations to the mobile market.

The company has revealed its benchmarks featuring the built-in RDNA3 graphics. The Radeon 780M offers up to 2.7 GHz GPU clock and 12 Compute Units. This is an upgrade from Radeon 680M (RDNA2) with the same core count but only 2.2 GHz clock.

According to AOKZEO, the 780M is 28% to 31% faster in synthetic 3DMark tests than the last-gen iGPU. More importantly, it performs similarly to GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q (3% to 7% slower) and GeForce RTX 2050 mobile graphics (3% slower to 26% faster). The latter is equipped with a 64-bit memory bus, so it does not perform well in TimeSpy. Kindly note the colors for 3DMark benchmarks are mixed up:

On the CPU front, the Phoenix APU performs better than the last-gen Ryzen 9 6900HX (at 45W). As a reminder, the Phoenix U-series operates within a 15 to 30-watt power range, so even at full TDP, the new CPU is still faster.

The company also provided its estimates for gaming performance in some AAA titles. The resolution and image quality will depend on the title, but the key takeaway is that integrated GPU offers 45–60 FPS in all games, at least 800p resolution (the console has a 1200p screen). However, gamers still have many options, including lower refresh rate/frame limit or the use of resolution upscaling technologies.

The Ryzen 7 7840U is no doubt a powerful processor for gaming, however, the AOKZOE’s A1 console might be a tough sell. It retails at $799 and that is only a launch price during the crowdfunding period. The company made a desperate decision to increase the default memory configuration from 16GB to 32GB just hours before launch, an effort to differentiate itself from competition like ASUS ROG Ally. Hopefully, the rumors about Ally’s $699 pricing will turn out to be true. In that case, A1 Pro will only serve a very limited audience.
