The Ayaneo Air Is a handheld gaming PC that stands out in an increasingly crowded market for several reasons. This is the first with an OLED display. It is one of the thinnest and lightest models with an x86 processor. And this is AYA’s most affordable handheld to date, with entry-level models starting at $ 549.
Unfortunately, the company has to sacrifice something to achieve all of them, in this case it looks like battery life.
AYA Neo Air is already Recently, the number of pre-orders has increased in China, AYA did not reveal the full specifications of the handheld until the press event on May 28, 2022. So I learned why the device works.
The AYA Neo Air features a 5.5-inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel AMOLED display, up to 32GB of RAM, an AMD Ryzen 5 5000U processor with Radeon Vega integrated graphics, and an M.2 2280 slot for up to 2TB of solid-state storage.
The entry-level version of AYA Neo Air also has a 28Wh battery, and AYA recognizes that it can provide over an hour of gameplay time for resource-intensive games such as: Forza Horizon 5 Also The witcher 3.. You should be able to get about 2.5 hours of battery life in less demanding games such as: Dead cellsBut it’s still far from the kind of battery life you’ll get Competitive device with a larger battery: For example, the ONEX PLAYER 1S has literally twice the battery capacity of the AYA Neo Air.
I have AYA Neo Air Pro It’s a model that comes with a 38Wh battery that needs a little longer run time, but it’s still not as good as most competing devices, and the company promises 89 minutes of run time. Forza Horizon 5 And 3.25 hours Dead cells..
The Pro model is a bit thicker and heavier than the model with a 28Wh battery, but in some configurations it can use a higher performance processor and more memory and storage than the lower cost model.
