ONEXPLAYER with AMD Ryzen 7 5700U shows promising performance in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Forza Horizon 5
Last week, we reported that One-netbook had started teasing AMD and mini versions of the ONEXPLAYER, its large gaming handheld. While the company remains quiet about the details of either on its social media channels, it has revealed specifications for the AMD edition on its Chinese website.
According to the website linked below, the ONEXPLAYER AMD Edition will be available with a Ryzen 7 4800U or a Ryzen 7 5700U, 8-core processors with 16 threads and Radeon RX Vega 8 GPUs. The Ryzen 7 5700U's iGPU boosts to 1,900 MHz though, 150 MHz higher than the equivalent in the Ryzen 7 4800U. The Ryzen 7 5700U also has a higher TDP and an uplifted CPU boost clock speed at 4.3 GHz.
Seemingly, nothing else separates the ONEXPLAYER AMD Edition from its Intel-based siblings. Hence, the machine has an 8.4-inch and 1600p display with 16 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and a 1 TB PCIe SSD. We cannot see how much the Ryzen 7 5700U edition costs. However, the ONEXPLAYER website teases that the AMD model starts at CNY 5,899 (~US$924), presumably the price of the Ryzen 7 4800U edition.
In the meantime, Project-SBC has showcased how the Ryzen 7 5700U model handles modern triple-A games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Forza Horizon 5. As the videos below show, the device plays both smoothly, but not at its native 1600p resolution. Instead, Project-SBC demonstrated Call of Duty at 800p and Forza Horizon 5 at 1200p, both using low graphics settings. Nonetheless, you may able to push the quality and resolution higher with some TDP tweaking or by adjusting some resource-heavy graphics settings.
Unfortunately, Project-SBC has not stated when One-netbook will launch the ONEXPLAYER globally. We imagine that the company will bring the device to AliExpress or Indiegogo, based on the release of the original ONEXPLAYER and ONEXPLAYER 1S.
