It seems that little by little the console with Windows that promised desktop games in our hands back in the year is becoming a reality 2014 with the name of SteamBoy. After four years and with the name changed to Smach Z this console has had to wait for the new generation of AMD Ryzen V1000 SoC to come true. Undoubtedly a very ambitious project that has had to wait for the hardware to evolve until it meets the expectations that it promised to the users who financed it a year ago.

in the console Smach Z we have the SoC AMD Ryzen V1605B with four cores and eight threads, a speed between 2 and 3.6 GHz, it integrates a Vega GPU with 8 CU and a maximum speed of 1.1 Ghz, surprisingly it mounts two slots DDR4 SO-DIMM up to 2400 MHz, the average consumption of this unit is about 15W and as we can see it has active ventilation. Inside the console we find a battery of 46Whr which according to those responsible will give us a useful life of 5 hours.

the price of the Smach Z It has also been modified over the years, right now the simplest model with 4 GB of RAM has a price on the Indiegogo website of about $490 and the PRO model with 8 GB of RAM reaches $690If it takes a couple of years, we don’t know how far it can go.
