Gamers, get ready to level up your handheld gaming experience because Ayaneo’s Kun is gearing up for pre-orders starting September 5. This latest addition to Ayaneo’s impressive lineup of handheld gaming PCs is set to make waves, and we’ve got the scoop on what makes it a potential game-changer.
A Bigger, Brighter Display
While Ayaneo has already made a name for itself with multiple gaming handhelds, the Kun takes things up a notch. One standout feature is its impressive 8.4-inch display. That’s right, this isn’t your average handheld screen – it’s even bigger than the already substantial Steam Deck. But it’s not just about size; the Kun’s display boasts a stunning 1600p resolution, which is leaps and bounds ahead of the Steam Deck’s 720p screen and the ROG Ally’s 1080p displays. And let’s not forget the brightness factor – the Kun’s 500-nit display outshines the Steam Deck’s 400 nits, promising a vibrant and eye-catching visual experience.
Performance and Battery Life Balance
Now, let’s talk performance. The Kun is powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 7840U processor with integrated Radeon 780M graphics, giving you the muscle you need for some serious gaming on the go. But here’s the catch – that impressive display and powerful hardware might come at a cost. Ayaneo’s internal tests suggest that the Kun can handle extreme settings for about 49 minutes, though they wisely advise against using those settings for everyday gameplay. However, if you’re willing to dial things down a bit, you can expect a more respectable three hours of gaming on a single charge. This battery life is on par with the Steam Deck, but real-world usage will be the ultimate test.
Cooling Innovation and Enhanced Gameplay
Ayaneo has also upped its game in terms of heat dissipation with the new “KUNPeng” cooling system. No more worrying about your device overheating during intense gaming sessions. Plus, the Kun’s optimized grip sensation ensures you’re comfortable while conquering virtual worlds. And let’s not forget about the new floating eight-directional D-pad, face recognition feature, and customizable back button – these smaller but significant additions enhance the overall gameplay experience. Oh, and the built-in folding stand? It’s a handy feature that makes gaming on the go even more convenient.
A Stylish Selection
The Kun doesn’t just excel in performance and features; it’s also a fashion statement. With three sleek color options – Silver Wing, Black Feather, and White Silk – you can choose the one that matches your personal style. It’s not just about gameplay; it’s about looking good while you dominate the gaming scene.
Pricing and Availability
Now, let’s address the question burning in your mind – how much will this gaming marvel cost? Early Bird buyers can snatch up the Kun starting at $999. If you miss that window, don’t worry – the Indiegogo retail price will be $1,129. For the 16GB RAM and 512GB storage base model, the official retail price is set at $1,209.
