OneXPlayer X1 With Intel Core Ultra CPU Pricing and Availability Detailed

OneXPlayer X1 release

The gaming handheld PC market has become quite competitive, and it all started with the release of the Steam Deck. After that, we had the ASUS ROG Ally and the Lenovo Legion Go. Of course, there were also many releases from Ayaneo and GPD. One common thing for most past releases is that they came with an AMD APU. That’s basically one of the factors that separates the OneXPlayer X1.

It’s powered by the latest Intel Meteor Lake processor range. More specifically, the handheld will come with the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H and Core Ultra 5 125H. With this, the OneXPlayer X1 has become the second major gaming handheld to feature an Intel processor inside. If you’re wondering which one is the first, it’s the MSI Claw.

Nonetheless, OneXPlayer has been teasing the X1 for quite a while. Now, we have all the details about the gaming handheld.
