So have they actually got anything functional to show or is this just a dummy device backed up by promises? I didn't keep track of this as it was looking like a total scam and the size/form factor doesn't appeal to me at all.

I guess if they've actually got a populated mobo then their intentions at least seem good, not sure they can bring anything to market though.

Yeah it?s pretty big but if it doesn?t weigh a lot looks comfortable to hold, I really like the rounded grip area design.
If you want halfway decent battery life you will get a chunky unit but I actually like the way it looks.

Super long handhelds like this tend to be really unwieldy though. Closest I can think of is a standard phone with a PhoneJoy controller. Issues with the button layout and general grip design aside, it just feels so very wrong with how long it was and this just looks like more of that.

It's not really the grips that bother me- I think that putting batteries in the grip Shield style is a nice way of distributing the weight, and you want comfortable grip shapes for long play sessions. My issue is the thickness of the center section, and the enormous cooler hanging off the back of the device. That thing is going to be heavy!

Yeah it?s thick but it needs to be, it uses much more powerful hardware  than the Win 2 and I?m glad they are using a custom cooling solution as long as it?s not too loud.
This might not even be the final design yet , it?s still in the prototype stage in my eyes.

BREAKING NEWS: The Smach team managed to make some LEDs light up. https://ksr-video.imgix.net/assets/021/071/291/4d0789346af5ed218182cd50a5af2c87_h264_high.mp4

And they're meant to be shipping this to customers in September. Lol.

From HW perspective, i have now Ryzen 2200 APU, its 65W and has Vega 8 GPU too and even with 3000 DDR4 MHz memory, 1080p gaming is problematic even on low details.. And now they would have slower apu with 5 hours of battery life for 1080p, its nonsense.

  All previous AMD low power APUs was complete fail, i dont believe that they really have working prototype, these FPS numbers there are not proofs at all.. otherwise they would show as something better like running Afterburner OSD and hand on video.
 
  And their forum section on their site - you cant even create a post..
