The very first batch of AMD’s Ryzen 7 6800U processors for the A1 console has been delivered, as confirmed by AOKZOE founder Chengzhi Zong. The batch consists of 22 boxes, each of which consists of five trays and 32 Ryzen CPUs. This means a combined number of 3520 processors in this one batch.
The Ryzen 7 6800U is AMD’s latest mobile CPU designed and built specifically for low-power devices. It consists of 8 cores and 16 threads and is based on the Zen3+ core architecture codenamed Rembrandt. The processor features 12 graphics compute units based on the RDNA2 architecture, which means there’s a minor upgrade compared to the AMD Vega on the Ryzen 4000 and 5000 series.
AMD’s Zen/RDNA2 APUs are no longer just exclusive to the more power-hungry game consoles like the PS5 or Xbox series. Times have changed and now even battery-powered and portable devices are based on AMD hardware. Some examples are the game consoles of OneXPlayer, GDP or AOKZOE. Even Valve’s steam deck is powered by AMD hardware.
In these cases, the more power-consuming 45W mobile CPUs are not the best choice as they have limited battery capacity. Here, the Rembrandt combines energy efficiency with powerful mobile graphics. This explains why so many companies strive for a similar architecture and configuration for their devices.
Now that the Ryzen 7 6800U CPUs have arrived, AOKZOE’s production plans seem to be in full swing. The company has decided to fulfill the first orders for the A1 console by September.
