AYANEO GEEK 6800U/800p pricing starts at 4399 RMB
AYANEO continues its product rollout for 2022 featuring new AMD APUs.
AYENEO now offers many handheld consoles, targeting budget and premium markets. The Chinese company unveiled multiple products this year featuring AMD Ryzen CPUs, including the latest “Rembrandt” APU with Zen3+ architecture in the form of Ryzen 7 6800U.
The Ryzen 6800U is the most powerful ‘low-power’ AMD SKU featuring 8 cores and 16 threads, but more importantly it is equipped with powerful RDNA2 graphics with up to 12 Compute Units. That’s more powerful graphics than Steam Deck’s Van Gogh with 8 CUs. AMD Zen3+ and RDNA2 in 15-28W APU is a perfect match for handheld gaming device.
The company has rebranded its AYANEO 2 GEEK to just GEEK, but this is still the same device from ‘affordable premium’ segment that the company announced in June this year. It is offered with 512GB of 1TB storage and with either 800p or 1200p screen option.
The cheapest GEEK model, also featuring Ryzen 7 6800U will cost 4399 RMB (630 USD) which is a starting price for Chinese customers during initial sales. For international buyers, this price will increase to 725 to 750 USD with shipping included, probably just around 100 USD more than Steam Deck.
Official retail price for GEEK is 5288 RMB (763 USD) and this is the only model listed thus far. It is worth noting that the company previously announced Ryzen 5 6600U variant, but there are thus far no details on this model.
AYANEO's return to form is getting a formal announcement.
This is AMD 6800U so it brings the heat.
The "Geek 2" version is targeting low-cost. It's around ~$630 domestic but for international should be around $725-750

The console is now available for reservation through a Chinese AYANEO website. However, we do not recommend preordering hardware before launch, especially when the product has not been independently tested.
