AYN Loki with AMD Ryzen 6000 CPU?

A relatively new company in the handheld gaming space is claiming to be working on a next-gen Windows console featuring AMD APU.

AYN had a success with Odin console, which is an ARM based system supporting Android and Windows for ARM. That low-power device had no way of competing with powerful Windows gaming consoles from OneXplayer, Ayaneo or Valve. However, with the new announcement, this could change in the future.

AYN announced ‘The Most Affordable Windows Handhelds Ever Created‘. It’s a plural form because the family of AYN Loki consoles will feature as many as five different specs and devices. The cheapest model called Loki Mini would cost just $299, and it would feature an Intel Alder Lake U processor. The company is not confirming which SoC exactly would this device have.

A bit more expensive Loki and Loki Max will feature AMD Zen3+ architecture and RDNA2 graphics. This means Ryzen 5 6600U. The most interesting part here is the pricing. The AMD version would cost $499 for 64GB storage, $599 for 256GB, $699 for 512 GB and $799 for a Max edition with 512GB space. The Loki Max ships with more powerful Ryzen 7 6800U SoC, the same processor will be availble with AYANEO2.

The Odin console made a debut on the crowdfunding platform, which is where the AYN Loki consoles will probably make theirs. The Steam Deck is now available for as little as $349 and features AMD Zen2 CPU alongside RDNA2 graphics.

One thing is sure though, the gaming console market with AMD hardware is growing by the day.
