Alienware brought its concept for a new type of gaming PC to CES 2020 today, and it looks an awful lot like a Nintendo Switch.

The device, called Concept UFO, is a portable device with two controllers, similar to Nintendo’️s Joy-Cons. Alienware and its parent company, Dell, aren’️t committing to a specific release date, specifications, pricing or even that it will ever hit the market. But it’️s far enough that we got to take a look.

Update: AMD's chief architect of gaming solutions, Frank Azor, wrote on Twitter that the UFO runs on Ryzen. It's unclear if it's an embedded chip or something else.

Update 2: But at Dell's own press conference, Viven Lee, vice president of Alienware and Dell Gaming, said it uses the latest 10th Gen Intel processors, presumably H-series. So it's unclear if Dell is using both platforms.
Looks interesting and I can't wait to see its performance with the Tiger Lake iGPU in Q4 of this year.

Video for those that prefer a visual:

Edit: The author of the Tom's Hardware article can't read a tweet. Frank Azor asked

Who wants to see this beauty powered by an @AMDRyzen?
Looks like they might be trying to get another semi-custom deal going.

woot, but at least $999 since it's Alienware.

hopefully this gets Nintendo to beef up on the genuine Switch refresh.

i wanna see docked mode 4K upscale, and 1080p all the time on mobile.

I saw this the other day and thought about posting it on news but since there's no specs or price, I didn't. Seems cool, wonder if it will make it to market.

Who on earth wants a console based on an Intel APU?

That's the price for looking at it.

well razer did this first with the razer edge which actually has a dedi GPU. else GPD win is way more portable given the lack of IGPU.

i just want a quality redirect tool for my home workstation to stream to my already existing mobile devices.

I don't wanna pay M$ for their library, I already HAVE THE LIBRARY. just sell me the tunnel service -.-

that was also like 7 years ago now.


I'm just waiting on nintendo to release a proper next gen Shield. 4K in the sheets, 1080p in the streets.

I don't spend anywhere near enough time gaming on the go to have yet another device with a separate library.


it REALLY needs to be a hand held that redirects all of your already owned assets

This is a mobile console. People have been mobile gaming on Intel apus since before the PS4 was released. If you want a.a.a. on mobile you are better off with something like stadia. Or streaming from the good pc. With a good screen to some tiny crappy screen.
