No really, why did Valve go with Zen 2?
The AYANEO2 console will undoubtedly be faster here though, because the 6800U ships with Radeon 680M integrated graphics, which has 12 Compute Units: 50% more than Steam Deck. In fact, the iGPU subsystem can boost up to 2.2 GHz, so 600 MHz higher than SteamDeck. What this means is that the iGPU is almost twice as fast (3.38 TFLOPS vs 1,6 TFLOPS). The company CEO confirmed the device will be just as powerful as GTX 1050 Ti.
The APU operates in the 15 to 28W power range, giving companies such as AYANEO2 some room for adjustment. Handheld gaming console makers often use configurable TDP to unlock full performance when the device is attached to a docking station or simply is running off a charger.
The 6800U is also an 8-core Zen 3 CPU, as opposed to the Deck's 4-core Zen 2 CPU. The CPU in this new device should challenge or even beat the Series S CPU.
