AOKZOE A1 PRO recently unveiled its brand new handheld gaming console. It’s called the AOKZOE A1 Pro and is currently on sale for just $799. Although this price is promotional and only available through Indiegogo, the handheld gaming console provides serious value for money.
More specifically, recent gaming performance videos shared by AOKZOE show that the Z1 Pro can offer smooth gameplay in some major AAA games. More specifically, it performs better than the RTX 2050 and is on par with the GTX 1650 Ti.
AMD RADEON 780M IGPU INSIDE THE AOKZOE A1 PRO IS A BEAST!
The latest benchmark results shared by AOKZOE have revealed the Z1 Pro’s performance in 3DMark and Cinebench R23. Before getting to the numbers, you should know that the gaming laptop is equipped with the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U chipset, which has 8 cores and 16 threads. The frequency of one core of this chipset is 5.1 GHz.
As for the GPU, the AOKZOE A1 Pro features an AMD Radeon 780M that boasts 12 CUs running at a maximum frequency of 2.7GHz. Overall, the base power consumption is 28W, but the AOKZOE offers the ability to adjust it between 15 and 30W. So you can fine-tune the performance to suit your needs.
The AOKZOE A1 Pro gets super close to the Intel Core i7 12700H in Cinebench R23. The most important thing is that it managed to beat the last generation flagship, AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX. The gap from Ryzen 9 6900HX is quite impressive, it is 4.5% in multi-core tests and 12% in single-core tests.
For comparison, Ryzen 9 6900HX has a much higher TDP of 45W. On the other hand, Intel Core i7 12700H consumes much more. So the efficiency of the AOKZOE A1 Pro is no joke!
3DMARK AND FIRE STRIKE
The results of FireStrike and Time Spy showed up in the 3DMark results. In these tests, the AOKZOE is on par with some popular discrete GPUs. And what are the results? The AOKZOE A1 Pro is faster than all Radeon 680M, GTX 1050TI and most importantly RTX 2050.
What’s more, the Z1 Pro is almost as good as the GTX 1650 TI. In case you were wondering, the GTX 1650 Ti and RTX 2050 are two of the most popular laptop chips at the moment. They come with just about every modern gaming laptop available.
But the key point here is that the AOKZOE A1 Pro delivers the same level of performance or even better with much higher efficiency. This changes the game for the iGPU, and it means that AMD will be able to wrest more market share from the green team.
At the same time, all of these AOKZOE A1 Pro performance results come from running the device at 28W TDP. This means that there is more room for performance improvement that can be squeezed out by changing the configuration. It also means that the more powerful Ryzen 7040 H and HS will provide even more performance as they allow the GPU to draw more power at a much higher TDP.
GAMING PERFORMANCE OF AOKZOE A1 PRO
Benchmark performance is one thing, but gaming performance is quite another. Well, the AOKZOE A1 Pro is a beast in terms of gaming as well. You can easily get 55 to 60 frames per second in almost all modern games. To be exact, you can even play Cyberpunk 2077 on this handheld!
All in all, it’s obvious that AMD controls the whole portable gaming market. Now we just need to see more handhelds like the AOKZOE A1 Pro, which will challenge the Steam Deck in terms of price.
