That looks like a perfect device for remote gaming over Parsec or similar apps

The Zen3/RDNA APUs will be more powerful and power-efficient than these intel CPUs right ? :confused:

Pretty similar, these 10nm Tiger Lake CPU's are 28W peak and configurable down to 12W. Zen 3 APU's are RUMOURED to be 10-25W configurable.

Iris Xe has shown so far to be superior to the integrated Vega in Renoir, which is being re-used in Cezanne (Zen 3 APU's). in 2022 Rembrandt Zen 3 APU's will have Navi2 cores apparently, which will probably compete better with Xe.

Exactly my thoughts. I had a UX, which was really cool, but very impractical. I saw this and thought, hmm, maybe ... or is it vaporware?

Ah, I have mine still. Need to find someone who can maybe swap out the CPU to another I know fits and upgrade the ram, if possible. Would love to actually use it, but it's specs keep it from even running 7.

I actually kinda want to buy one...

I had the Sony, but yeah it's specs definitely hurt it.

Here's some benchmarks they published on the Indiegogo... Pretty impressive:

IIRC, this device appeared in Quantum of Solace. Still looks cool tho, I love Vaio's design language.
