AMD To Power Another Console


AMD have powered every current gen home console excluding the Nintendo Switch, and they’re set to power another one. AMD’s all-new Ryzen Embedded R1000 APU will be used to power the Atari VCS console by Atari. The console will be Atari’s first big step back into a console space currently dominated by 3 industry giants.

AMD claims the all-new Ryzen embedded chip will be faster, cooler, and more efficient, allowing the Atari VCS to sport a simpler and more effective power architecture and thermal solution. The new processor includes built-in Ethernet, Native 4K video support with modern HDCP, and a secure frame buffer that fully-supports DRM video (Netflix, HBO, etc.).

Not another “retro-box

The Atari VCS is a completely modern connected gaming and media device (not a “retro-box” or emulator) that features a unique Linux-based operating system capable of playing popular new video game releases and streaming entertainment.

All The Classics included

As an homage to its roots, the Atari Vault® — a collection of more than 100 all-time classic arcade and home favorites like Asteroids®, Centipede®, Breakout®, Missile Command®, and Yars’ Revenge® — is included with every new Atari VCS. Fans will be able to access and download additional games and content through a connected Atari VCS storefront.

The Atari VCS has a projected Q4 2019 launch, beginning with Indiegogo backer pre-orders.
