(*5*)

Whilst the Steam Deck is still honed the usage of firmware updates, its Aya Neo competitor prefers to unencumber new {hardware} revisions. The newest, reported through (*1*)Liliputing, is the Neo Slide. It incorporates a real keyboard hidden in the back of the display, highest for tapping away in a bunch chat or enjoying textual content adventures at the move. However, in all probability extra importantly, it options uprated specifications.

Don’t get too excited since the keyboard is a capacitive contact type and it sounds as if no longer that straightforward to make use of or kind on. Then again, for taking part in video games that don’t pair neatly with a controller – or even perhaps sending the unusual e mail or two – this can be a step in the proper route and a lot more handy than packing a compact Bluetooth mechanical keyboard on your bag. Oh, and it has RGB lights.

The product briefing we’ve embedded above, which isn’t in English and doesn’t have whole subtitles, will provide you with a just right take a look at the entire new Neo units. Except the keyboard, the innards have been upgraded to an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor (Zen 3+) with Radeon 680M (RDNA2) graphics. This GPU can theoretically push two times as many FLOPS because the one within the Steam Deck and is similar combo discovered within the lately introduced (*2*)Neo 2. It additionally takes at the curvaceous design of the brand new hand held, all rounded corners the place the unique 2022 type had a extra hexagonal form, very similar to the GPD Win3 – which had a slide-up keyboard.

The Slide slots right into a fourth product class for the Neo, which now sees the unique type and Neo 2 have compatibility into the ‘mainline product’ slot. The Slide has a class of its personal that’s more or less similar, along the 720p Air (entry-level) and Subsequent (top-level) fashions. The present Subsequent, as we indicate in our evaluate, is much less tough than the Steam Deck, so it’ll be overtaken in its top-level place through the Neo 2.

The corporate may be creating a model of the Aya House sport launcher to be used on non-Aya {hardware}; then again, there’s no company unencumber date. No release date for the Slide has been launched both, past ‘later this 12 months,’ and pricing is a guessing sport. The present fashions of Neo all (*3*)value over $1,000, so we received’t get the Slide for anything else just like the Steam Deck’s entry-level value of $399, even though there may be hope with the approaching Air.
