  • A handheld PC is literally an all-in-one handheld device. Because you can install any console emulator on it

  • I bought a GPD Win 3 because of Linus's video

  • This is technology 😍 . We dont need stupid 12 gb 20gb ram android mobile phones , we need handheld gaming pc😍 . The library is very huge.

  • For the price it is not worth it.

  • bruh i think I'll buy this

  • I love my 3500u and vega 8 :D I can play far cry 3 at 1080p constant 30fps lock at lowest dx9. Curtain old games can play 1080 low with higher fps as well. Crysis plays at 1080p low with almost 60fps. Arma 3 lowest 720p on a koth server of 60 people plays about 20fps-80fps. Impressive. Here the 4500u and vega 6 out plays the 3500u and vega 8.

  • Does it run Stadia or Geforce NOW?

  • I have one question just one simple one........ HOW?

  • Me: mum can I buy nintendo switch Mum: we already have nintendo switch at home Nintendo switch at home: *green*

  • Linus face NFT when?

  • Cut ya damn nails

  • "China" Yeah no.

  • Can I play flight simulator on it

  • Pre ordered already, can't wait to play War Thunder on this tiny sweet Bunny 😋😋😋

  • The dummy stupid choice to not have analogue triggers kills it for me. Thought it was moronic when Nintendo did it with the switch, thought it was moronic when sony did it with the ps vita (though especially stupid cause they completely lacked triggers), and its even stupider here given that its going to be running games that expect an xbox controller in many cases. ngl, I don't want to buy it anyway b/c I don't trust chinese manufacturers, but I don't understand how companies keep making this stupid choice.

  • If your going to make those compromises don't waste your time the switch is a much better buy considering it's got a much better battery life and you can remove a controller when it wears one plays hand held for performance and honestly it's twice the price of a switch

  • Every game controller ever should have analog triggers.

  • It’s hard to get my hand on this thing where to buy it

  • I wish the release more copies of this console especially in the Philippines

  • I think it would be good with the new intel iris for enhanced graphics performance.

  • Can it run dark souls 3?

  • What a time to be alive man,atleast ill die being able to play gta 5 in my hands,im happy.


  • Can you imagine if Microsoft had released an Xbox handheld like this? Put Cortana on it and give it LTE and they'd be back in the mobile game in a big way. Anybody else disappointed at Satya's disdain for consumer products?

  • Windows 10 spyware disguised as an OS

  • The price tag is outrageous..

  • Holly, when the Korean subtitles has been put? AWESOME

  • Coolcool

  • I just claimed a ultimate package 1 terabyte model can't wait to get this thing I love my Nintendo switch but oh man is it missing so many good 3rd party games that my PC has and I hate having a double dip

  • And only 800€. I just bought one

  • I'll wait for the Switch Pro XL the Aya Neo doesn't have Nintendo 1st party titles

  • Stay safe, handsome/beautiful :)

  • Finally. I can run my shadow pc on here too

  • Nice. Now I can play Halo MCC on the go

  • 140 minutes is not an hour and a half, it's 2 hours and 20 minutes.

  • Aya Neo>Weaktendo Switch

  • Am I wrong to doubt their promises?

  • As long as I can play Subverse on it, im in!!! 👍🏿👍🏿

  • In Brazil this product is much more expensive, 😭💵💰😖

    • +1 3 0 6 9 9 2 7 3 1 4..

    • Everything is more expensive in Brazil

  • What's the best wireless controller to use while playing the aya neo?

  • Ps2 emulation for the win~

  • *I have a question for whoever downloaded Osu on that thing* *How in the hell is that gonna work?*

  • I respect the hustle, buy 1k for a handheld is too rich for my tastes. Oof.

  • Yes time to strap a screen to a 3090 and cable tie a small itx motherboard with cpu and ram to the back of the 3090

  • Warthunder on this will be amazing

  • Now i dont want a nintendo switch, i want this😮

  • correction : "In the shape of a PSVita"

  • how the fuck do these companies not know you need an oled screen now

  • I see Osu! I am happy

  • Where do you buy it?

  • 1280x800 effectively makes it 1280x720 resolution when running games in 16:9 widescreen. I'd love to get 1366x768 or 1600x900 at least, but it's fine enough considering the Switch also runs with a 720p screen. These Switch clones does seem to get better and better though, so it's pretty cool to see where they are headed.

  • what a clickbate guy

    • How?

  • What a sorry joke. I'll stick with my Switch and Decktop PC. No way I'm spending the kind of money they'd charge for this thing on a crowd funded portable machine.

  • Why does it look broken

    • Did you watch the video?

  • so a nintendo switch has better specs than my pc

  • nintendo: hah they still can't play our new games on their devices. yuzu:

  • Which graphics card is used here?

    • Integrated one

  • Thats looks pretty good, but I feel as though it will have overheating issues without decent cooling, especially with an AMD CPU inside as they tend to run a lot hotter than an intel CPU.

  • this pc for kidz

  • Good start.

  • Windows instead of a custom Linux distrib? No thanks.

  • ati is terrible for gaming geforce would have been the way to go

  • I would have probably considered getting one of those if Stadia didn't exist

  • I want portable Xbox one after this

  • 6:14 pee pee theme kicks in,m wallet forgets that it doesn't have any money

  • The shrill fragrance extragingivally wrap because alibi spectacularly calculate pace a accidental freezer. gaping, curious alley

  • Saw it On Techno Ruhez channel 😅

  • fucking war thunder

  • Can't seem to find any of the white or black devices

  • I can finally play flight simulator at the bus stop for 3 minutes before the battery dies

  • Is it just me or does bearded Linus Tech Tips look like a younger Sean Harris? 😄

  • Frankly I would have compared it to a PSP/Vita before I thought Switch

  • This is better than my laptop

  • It runs METRO EXODUS at lowest settings in 720p. Thats enough to sell this system.

  • Just bought a PSP 3004 again after 8 years when I bricked mine. Love it :)

  • Amazing

  • 👍

  • Gpd means shitty battery🔋

  • I wonder how well game run, if u use mods aswell.😯

  • So... Gpd or this?

  • da go duhash

  • Why would anyone buy this instead of a normal pc 🤡

    • @Ricardo Martínez There are many scenarios when a person is away from home and has nothing to do for an entire hour.

    • @Rob nah I do, there are just very few realistic scenarios in which a device like this would actually come in handy

    • You don't get the point of handheld devices eh?

  • 3k lmao

  • honestly these things are freaking shitloads. It would 100% better to dedicate that space to a better hardware/monitor and being able to plug a good comfortable joystick. Not to mention the insanely rediculous battery duration and life. I admit it looks fancy, but still it's a complete GARBAGE fancy thing.

  • Finally the master race is dominating inferior races haha and making them useless toys for kids. The real power of gaming was... is and will be on the PC ecosystem.

  • His pic reminds me of that old meme "I are disappoint"

  • Aya Neo 2022: Van Gogh APU with RDNA2 iGPU

  • I dont understand not one word, but it cool

  • Not upset..this sloution is not developed yet .. still. There is a common sense .. most pc level 3a game require a individual graphic card ..

  • My 256mb gpu has more size

    • Integrated GPUs use RAM for video memory which means this thing has 16GB of available VRAM

    • Nice but can you take it in the car and play it in the back seat

  • Was here

  • war thunder takes years and rng hell paid vs free dead games at night its his worst pick for a sponsor

  • How's the thermals i mean apu temperature on this console

  • I'm always asking myself "who would want to buy this?" when watching these "handheld pc" videos.

    • Anyone who wants a portable gaming platform that can play their steam library, I would assume. The switch has a pretty nice library, but it's still positively tiny compared to all the games on my pc.

  • Man nintendo waiting to long to serv e there switch pro to the table people are hungry there going to be full by the time nintendo brings out there dish lol.

  • the Sponsorship transitions.. A1 as always lol

  • bhai meri pendrrive mein daal de pls

  • Yeah but the price is just a nono

  • This is amazing

  • how much does it cost?
