Handheld PC

#1
Just seen this - might be of interest to a few ARRSErs (if I'd not bought an gaming laptop a few months ago, I'd have probably backed this for £450 for the pro version).

It's a handheld PC that's got some impressive FPS for the size and cost:


***********
The following benchmarks have been run on the final hardware of the SMACH Z PRO: Merlin Falcon RX-421BD (12-15w) SoC at 2.1 GHz with Radeon R7 at 800 MHz and 8 RAM, running on Windows 10.

  • Metro: Last Light Redux (720p. High settings) ~ 35 FPS

  • Jotun (1080p) ~ 45 FPS
  • Skyrim (720p. High setting) ~ 25 FPS
  • Just Cause 2 (720p. Medium settings) ~ 35 FPS

I dropped £900 on a gucci new i7 Acer (12Gb RAM and 512Gb SSD) a couple of months ago , only to find that it has an Intel HD 520 graphics card and won't run No Man's Sky and Fallout 4. I'd be interested to see if this wee beasty runs them both on an external monitor.

Apparently it streams, can't remember if it has HDMI or not. Might be worth asking if they've tested it with those games though.

I got a good deal for mine on eBay, I managed to pick up a refurbished Alienware with an i7, 8gb ram, 17.3 inch 1080p screen and one 1tb HD (not SSD), an Nvidia 970m and three year Dell onsite warranty for £750! It was listed at 800 BIN, but they gave me 50 quid back as they'd listed the processor at the wrong speed! If I didn't have that machine, then I'd have got one of these.
