AYANEO is set to release a new lineup of handheld gaming PCs featuring AMD’s Ryzen 7000 U-series chips. The new devices include the Ayaneo 2S, Ayaneo Geek 1S, and an updated version of the Ayaneo Air Plus. In addition to releasing new devices, AYANEO will also offer upgrades for existing models. They will provide a free speaker upgrade for every Ayaneo Air and a cooling module for every Ayaneo 2 and Ayaneo Geek, which can lower temperatures by up to 12 degrees Celsius.
The Ayaneo 2S features a three-pipe cooler and a bright, colorful screen, smoother triggers, an easier-to-open case, and a fingerprint sensor optimized for fewer mistakes. The device will run on the unannounced Ryzen 7000U chip, offering better performance improvement than the Ryzen 6800U. The low TDP 8-15W gold range in the 7000 series will improve the efficiency of the device. However, there has been no announcement regarding improvements in battery life.
The Ayaneo Geek 1S will be a cut-down version of the Ayaneo 2, featuring a lower-resolution 800p screen for better battery performance, and the Ryzen 7000 series processor.
AYANEO is also working on a software launcher called Ayaspace 2.0, which comes with major improvements to the current version of Ayaspace.
The Ayaneo 2S and Geek 1S will be available on Indiegogo by the end of April, go on sale in mid-May, and ship by the end of June. Free cooling and speaker upgrades will be available by mid-May, and the company plans to launch the Android-based Ayaneo Pocket Air, which will go into mass production in July.
AYANEO is teasing a new device, the Ayaneo Kun, which claims to have the most buttons and the largest battery capacity in a Windows handheld.
