AMD to showcase open PC technology based SMACH Z handheld gaming console


The SMACH Z hand­held gaming con­so­le makes PC gaming enthu­si­asts’ dreams come true, enab­ling them to play high-end games natively on an open, x86 based ultra-por­ta­ble hand­held-sized device in bril­li­ant 1080p defi­ni­ti­on, or even 4K UHD when using an exter­nal screen con­nec­ted via Dis­play­Po­rt. The open­ness and com­pa­ti­bi­li­ty of the SMACH Z is a key dif­fe­ren­tia­tor for this plat­form, as it not only sup­ports nati­ve PC games and ser­vices such as Steam, GOG, Ori­gin, Itchio,, and UPlay but also strea­ming ser­vices such as Play­Sta­ti­on Nowand any other PC-com­pa­ti­ble ser­vices. Even the ear­liest games can be play­ed without restric­tions on the SMACH Z, which runs Win­dows 10 or the Linux based SMACH Z OS. On top of all this, it pro­vi­des a tru­ly immer­si­ve mul­ti­me­dia expe­ri­ence with hard­ware-sup­por­ted 4K HDR video streaming.

By con­nec­ting a key­board, mou­se and exter­nal dis­play, the SMACH Z turns into a hand­held mobi­le com­pu­ter capa­ble of run­ning all com­mon pro­duc­ti­vi­ty soft­ware offe­rings, inclu­ding ser­vices such as video con­fe­ren­cing thanks to the optio­nal­ly inte­gra­ted 5 Mega­pi­xel camera.

The SMACH Z hand­held con­so­les shown at Tokyo Game Show are powe­red by the latest genera­ti­on of AMD Ryzen™ Embed­ded V1000 pro­ces­sors, spe­ci­fi­cal­ly the Ryzen™ Embed­ded V1605B SoC with AMD Rade­on™ Vega 8 gra­phics. They can be run with Linux or Win­dows 10. All inte­gra­te a 6‑inch 1080p touch screen and a 5 Mega­pi­xel came­ra, up to 16GB of RAM as well as up to 256 GB of SSD sto­rage exten­d­a­ble via an SD card slot. The exten­si­ve con­nec­ti­vi­ty opti­ons inclu­de USB‑C, USB‑A and Micro USB as well as Dis­play­Po­rt and a mini audio jack. For wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on the con­so­les sup­port WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/d/e/h/i and Blue­tooth v2.1. All in all, the­re are over 20,000 com­pa­ti­ble games avail­ab­le out of the box.
