If you’re searching for a Switch-like device that’s also a full-fledged Windows 10 PC, it appears that One-Netbook has you covered with the OneXPlayer. It’s only 8.4 inches in size, yet it’s capable of more than just playing Nintendo Switch games. It’s designed to allow you to play AAA PC games on the go.
The OneXPlayer promises to achieve this using Intel’s 11th-generation CPUs. Iris Xe graphics are included, which are suitable for FHD gaming. Yes, AAA titles are included. The top-of-the-line ‘Ultimate Edition’ features a Core i7-1185G7 processor with 96EU Iris Xe graphics. The Core i7-1165G7 in the Pro Edition has 96 execution units, while there is also a Standard Edition with a Core i5-1135G7 and 80EU graphics.
Everything else appears to be fairly well-specced as well. The One XPlayer has 16GB of LPDDR4x 4266MHz RAM and a maximum storage capacity of 2TB M.2 2280 SSD. It will also feature two USB 4.0 Type-C connections and one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port. While there is a controller built into the chassis in typical Nintendo Switch fashion, you may wish to use the kickstand to prop up the machine and connect a controller to the USB Type-A port. You may also use the Thunderbolt port to attach an external GPU, significantly increasing the power.
It also comes with an attachable magnetic keyboard, allowing you to use it for both gaming and productivity. There’s no reason you couldn’t use it for other things because it comes with Windows 10 and a ton of storage.
You’re probably wondering how thermals are going to work at this point. To try to keep things cool, it comes with two fans and two heat pipes.
There is a lot of beefy internals because the battery is 15,300mAh. The screen has a resolution of 25601600 pixels and a 16:10 aspect ratio. Still, with Iris Xe, Intel only guaranteed FHD gaming. If you attach an external GPU, you can always upgrade to a higher resolution.
