One-Netbook Technology has launched its first portable game console, Onexplayer, designed to allow PC gamers to take their games with them on the go in a portable format, and the specifications look pretty promising for a handheld device.
Released on May 10 worldwide, Onexplayer may not be the cheapest gaming device priced at around $ 1,059 (about £ 750 / $ 1,345), but consumers can grab the console for $ 819 (about £ 580 / $ 1,040) if they are purchased the “Early Bird” season through the product Indiegogo page.
Powered by an 11th-generation Intel Core processor, Onexplayer offers an 8.4-inch Full-HD IPS display and a resolution of 2560 x 1600, more than double what is likely to be its closest competitor, Nintendo Switch. There are also three different storage sizes available, 500 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB.
Big Switch moods?
Because Onexplayer is a portable gaming device, it makes obvious comparisons to the Nintendo Switch. Looking at the specifications, Onexplayer has clear advantages that win Switch 720p display resolution and a pint-sized 32GB of storage.
The big anchorage is, of course, the striking price tag. With a four-digit number, it’s obviously an enthusiastic technology, but one that certainly fills an admirably narrow. It will be interesting to see how well Onexplayer can perform triple A-PC titles such as Doom eternal or future Total War: Warhammer 3, a game that is sure to test that 11th generation Intel Core processor.
Most modern games require a separate graphics card to get close to their full potential, and we fear that trying to use them purely with CPU-integrated graphics might do them a disservice.
On the other hand, fully blown Windows a machine that you can take with you anywhere has other benefits that open up the entire Internet on the road, job opportunities, and the ability to connect any retro tools you might enjoy.
We know that many of you are waiting for confirmation of the rumors Nintendo Switch 2, which is said to be an improved version of Nintendo ‘s now four – year – old portable console. Onexplayer could then provide a solid presentation of what a cooked portable device can bring to the table.
