The Full Story.
The OneXFly is set to arrive on IndieGoGo on August 10 and will feature five different versions.
Each console includes the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U as the CPU solution, but depending on how much RAM and hard drive space you want will dictate the cost.
|OneXFly Model||Crowdfunding Price|
|7840U with 64G RAM and 4TB SSD||$1,299|
|7840U with 64G RAM and 2TB SSD||$1,199|
|7840U with 32GB RAM and 2TB SSD||$969|
|7840U with 32GB RAM and 1TB SSD||$889|
|7840U with 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD||$739|
The AMD Ryzen 7 7840U CPU is a popular choice at the moment, especially in the handheld gaming scene. It’s the same chip as seen in the ASUS ROG Ally, AYANEO Kun, and the Meteroish TJD T101. Without getting too heavy into jargon, it’s a powerful CPU that opens up a lot of possibilities.
The Z1 Extreme found in the ROG Ally, for example, is strong enough to keep things moving fast and still performs excellently when a mobile eGPU is hooked up. In short, the Ryzen 7 7840U CPU helps to futureproof your device for at least a few years.
The OneXFly also includes a seven-inch screen that’s capable of 1080p at 120 Hertz, complete with a thin bezel design, which basically means the black bands around the screen don’t take up too much space. Brightness for the device comes in at 480 nits.
One-Netbook hasn’t revealed the exact measurements of the device yet, but despite having the same size screen as the ROG Ally it’s a smaller device overall. Weight-wise, the OneXFly comes in at a tiny 580 grams. That’s 28 grams lighter than the ROG Ally and a massive 58 grams lighter than the Steam Deck.
If you order through the IndieGoGo page, you can also get your name in RGB lights on the front of the console, which actually has me wondering what the limit is. Anyone have a really long name and picking one up? I’d love to see how that scales on the device.
Finally, the OneXFly will ship with Harman audio, which is a boon for the audiophiles out there.
Harman AudioEFX is a post-processing sound suite for use on Android, Linux, and in the OneXFly’s case, Windows. Picture a really good equalizer and you’re on the right track.
AudioEFX is designed with a frequency range of 300Hz to 14kHz and can pick out sounds as low as 90dB. What does any of that mean? It’s essentially a way of saying the sound profile on the OneXFly should be of a high-enough quality to not miss any sounds or audio cues (how the speakers will work is another thing entirely though).
