Finally, after years in production, the finalized SMACH Z console will make its first appearance at E3 2019 next Tuesday (June 11th). Just to recap, it’s powered by AMD’s embedded V1605B APU (4 cores / 8 threads) with a base clock of 2.0GHz (3.6 GHz Boost frequency), up to 16GB of RAM and a Radeon Vega 8 GPU (1.1 GHz core clock) onboard with 512 shaders. Available in these configurations: $699 Smach Z (4GB RAM/64GB storage/no camera), $899 Smach Z Pro (8GB RAM/128GB storage | 5MP camera), and the $1099 Smach Z Ultra (16GB RAM/256GB storage | 5MP camera).

“Other features include USB Type-C, Type-A, and micro USB ports, DisplayPort, and a microSD card reader. The company says users should be able to get 2 to 7 hours of battery life while gaming, depending on the titles they’re running. You can fully charge the battery by plugging the Smach Z in for 45 minutes. Given the Smach Z’s history, I wouldn’t blame anyone for remaining skeptical until this thing is actually shipping,” reports Liliputing.
