AMD’s 8840U won’t shake up handheld PC gaming, but what about Intel’s Core Ultra?

Chinese boutique handheld firms are moving fast, with Ayaneo and GPD switching out their AMD 7840U in 2024 handhelds for the new 8840U instead — even though that chip is largely unchanged from 7840U. The only public diff is faster AI.

And yet there may be a new sheriff in town: OneXPlayer’s next system will feature an Intel Core Ultra. Phoronix has an extensive comparo showing Intel’s 155H beating AMD’s 7840U in GPU performance and power consumption simultaneously — just what I want in a handheld.
