The ONEXPLAYER is now available with AMD Ryzen 7 4800U or Ryzen 7 5700U APUs
One-netbook has brought the AMD versions of the ONEXPLAYER to AliExpress. To recap, One-netbook has swapped the Intel Tiger Lake processors that power the original ONEXPLAYER and ONEXPLAYER 1S for the Ryzen 7 4800U and Ryzen 7 5700U. Everything about the new ONEXPLAYER remains identical to the original model, besides the lack of Thunderbolt 3 support.
AMD's two APUs are closer to each other than their names would suggest, too. As our database shows, little separates the Ryzen 7 4800U from the Ryzen 7 5700U; both are Zen 2 APUs with eight multithreaded cores and RX Vega 8 GPUs. The Ryzen 7 5700U should run more efficiently than the Ryzen 7 4800U, though.
Currently, One-netbook offers AMD versions of the ONEXPLAYER on their own, with a carry case, a keyboard or with both accessories. All configurations come with 1 TB of storage and 16 GB of equally-fast RAM, along with identical 2,560 x 1,600-pixel displays.
The Ryzen 7 4800U model starts at US$1,159, US$40 cheaper than the Ryzen 7 5700U equivalent. However, pricing for accessories is all over the place, with the carrying case costing nearly US$20 more if you purchase the Ryzen 7 5700U edition. One-netbook hopes to start shipping AMD versions of the ONEXPLAYER within a week.
If you already own an Intel-based ONEXPLAYER, it is worth watching Project-SBC's video below, where he compares the Ryzen 7 5700U model against one with a Core i7-1165G7. While AMD may have better driver support than Intel, the Core i7-1165G7 and Ryzen 7 5700U are practically inseparable when playing Call of Duty: Warzone at identical settings.
