ONEXPLAYER 2 Pro EVA Limited Edition: New gaming handheld launches globally with AMD Ryzen 7 7840U and 32 GB of RAM
Last month, One-netbook presented the ONEXPLAYER 2 Pro EVA Limited Edition, the gaming handheld's second refresh since its release little over six months ago. While One-netbook has not mentioned the EVA Limited Edition since on its global social media channels, Minixpc is now stocking the gaming handheld in 1 TB and 2 TB variants. For reference, the retailer is only offering the EVA Limited Edition with 32 GB of RAM; eventually, One-netbook should sell 64 GB of RAM SKUs too.
In short, One-netbook has adapted the ONEXPLAYER 2 to house the Ryzen 7 7840U, an RDNA 3 and Zen 4-based APU from AMD's Phoenix series. Also available as the Ryzen Z1 Extreme in the ASUS ROG Ally, the Ryzen 7 7840U relies on 4 nm TSMC nodes and has eight CPU cores with 3.3 GHz base and 5.1 GHz boost clock speeds. Arguably, the Radeon 780M is the star of the show, with 12 Compute Units (CUs) and a peak 3 GHz clock speed depending on the model. The Ryzen 7 7840U supports AVX-512 instructions too, which proves useful when emulating PS3 and Xbox 360 games.
Moreover, the EVA Limited Edition has an 8.4-inch display that operates at 2,560 x 1,600 pixels and 60 Hz, as well as LPDDR5X RAM, an M.2 2280 SSD and a 65.5 Wh battery. Other ONEXPLAYER 2 features like detachable controllers remain, as does active stylus support. Currently, Minixpc charges US$1,299.99 for the ONEXPLAYER 2 Pro EVA Limited Edition with 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD. Alternatively, the gaming handheld is available with a 2 TB SSD for a US$100 surcharge.
