AOKZOE A1 Handheld Gaming PC with Ryzen 7 6800U hits Kickstarter for $899 and up

The AOKZOE A1 is a handheld gaming PC with an 8-inch 1920×1200 IPS LCD display surrounded by game controllers, an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor with Radeon 680M graphics and support for up to 32GB RAM and 2TB storage.

The AOKZOE A1, which debuted last month, is available to pre-order now for $899+ as part of a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, and is expected to begin shipping to backers in September 2022.

While AOKZOE is a new name in the handheld PC space, the brand is closely associated with One Netbook, which has been making ultra-portable computers since 2018, and gaming-focused models for about a year.

The AOKZOE A1 is one of the first modern handheld PCs powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor, an 8-core with 16 threads, Zen 3+ CPU cores and 12-core graphics based on the AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture. In other words, it should offer much stronger performance than a Steam Deck (which has 4 Zen 2 CPU cores and 8-core RDNA 2 graphics). That shouldn’t come as a surprise for a device with a starting price that is more than twice as high.

It’s not her only model with this processor though. The GPD Max mini gaming laptop is also available for pre-order through a crowdfunding campaign and is expected to ship in September. Models with Ryzen 7 6800U processors start at $999. And AYA and AYN both plan to launch handhelds with Ryzen 7 6800U chips in the coming months, with prices starting at $699 for an AYA Neo 2 Geek or $775 for an AYN Loki Max.

The AOKZOE A1 will be available in at least four configurations during crowdfunding:

  • 16GB/512GB for $899 (crowdfunding) / $1099 (retail)
  • 16GB/1TB for $999 (crowdfunding) / $1199 (retail)
  • 16GB/2TB for $1150 (crowdfunding) / $1350 (retail)
  • 32GB/2TB for $1299 (crowdfunding) / $1499 (retail)

Each model has LPDDR5X-6400 memory soldered to the motherboard, but the memory is provided by an M.2 2280 PCIe SSD, so this should be user-upgradable.
