AYA NEO Retro Pro - The portable Ryzen 7 4800U powered Xbox/PS?


I love these handhelds and mini pcs. I've almost bought a OneX player in the past and do own a minisforum 5900hx mini pc.

For those saying about build quality, from what I've heard the build quality on the aya neo and one X player are supposedly great. For the price, they also have to be.

I think its approaching a really interesting time for SFF gaming. The next few years could yield some really impressive results.


Regardless of cost, the drifting joysticks in new controllers and Nintendo's own hardware keeps me disinterested in all of it. Valve seems to be fixing this.

00:09:56 - Verdict

TheAya Neo Next is a powerful handheld gaming PC, but whether or not it's worth the much higher price is going to depend on how much you value Windows. The configuration we tested is a limited edition Advance model, which will be available directly from Aya Neo for $1,345. The standard version will feature the same config but have the option of a 1TB SSD for $1265 at launch and $1315 at retail. The 2TB version will cost $1365 at launch and $1465 after. A Pro version will also be available, which upgrades the processor to a slightly faster Ryzen 7 5825U CPU, 32GB of RAM, and 2TB of NVMe storage.
