Boutique handheld gaming firm Ayaneo has introduced the Ayaneo Flip DS — a 7-inch 120Hz handheld gaming clamshell with a second display screen that’s clearly impressed by the Nintendo DS, and may let it play video games like one too.
In response to Liliputing’s Brad Linder, who deserves kudos for calling out the corporate’s try to plant a “leak,” each the Flip DS and the same Flip KB might be powered by AMD’s Ryzen 7 7840U. That’s the identical chip that’s in practically every other flagship Home windows gaming handheld in the intervening time, together with fairly a number of from Ayaneo itself.
Whereas that AMD chip seems like overkill for Nintendo DS titles — I’m very curious about battery life — a secondary display screen to correctly show Nintendo’s top-and-bottom video games is a rarity within the emulation world.
A number of handhelds (and telephones) can already emulate the DS, however they usually put the highest and backside screens facet by facet or allow you to change between wanting on the prime or backside at any given time.
In case you’re within the Ayaneo Flip DS, know that it’s doubtless going to take a convoluted path to market. Not solely does Ayaneo crowdfund all its merchandise, however it additionally tends to trickle out particulars as slowly because it presumably can forward of their Indiegogo debut. The corporate additionally broadcasts new designs sooner than it will probably ship them — by the point I’ve obtained one of many firm’s merchandise for testing, it’s nearly all the time already moved on to a more recent, extra fascinating mannequin.
