One-Netbook wants to challenge the GPD Win Max and Smach Z handheld gaming PCs with OneGx
It appears One-Netbook is branching out from just producing nifty mini PCs that can thunder along with SSDs, Full HD screens, and efficient Amber Lake processors. The One Mix, One Mix 2, and One Mix 2s are well put together devices and the manufacturer is now working on the One Mix 3. It makes complete business sense for the company to stretch its expertise into the realm of handheld gaming PCs, which is where OneGx comes in.
There’s not really any information about the potential product in the promo – just a fancy image and some hands clasping at an invisible controller. Apparently, the company is looking for 30 testers to apply to One-Netbook so that they can get their hands on early OneGx consoles and constructively criticize them to pieces. Unsurprisingly, One-Netbook is looking for people with experience and enough spare time to help the One Mix maker compete against GPD and Smach.
The impressive-looking and powerful AMD Ryzen V1605B-driven Smach Z should be shipping by September 2019 but doesn’t come cheap. The GPD Win Max may come with the same embedded chip and should appeal to those who care just as much about the PC component as the gaming component. The handheld gaming PC market is going to get fiercer, especially if One-Notebook forges ahead with OneGx.
