For those of you interested in low-power, small and/or cheap(ish) computing, check out this LattePanda/GTX1650 gaming-capable rig: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXmqlDJTL5o
It runs off of a 120W power supply, can run without the 1650 for daily use, and runs most mid-range games on high settings
@gaeel it's interesting but it's still fairly expensive for what it is unfortunately :( I do like the idea that low power gaming rigs are getting closer to a practical reality
@electret Oh, it's certainly quite costly, but for that size and power consumption, it looks pretty good
As the author of the video says though, if you're looking for a cost-effective way to play video games, you're better off getting a second-hand Optiplex and chucking a cheap GPU into it
@gaeel damn, this looks like an actually feasible laptop replacement!
I was low-key thinking about how to set up a VJ-ing station, very portable but with a powerful GPU. Do you happen to know if this would work as or comparatively well with an AMD GPU?
@s_ol I don't know, but I can't see why not...
You'd need to check power requirements, and be sure the GPU can work off of a PCIe x4 slot, but it's an x86 machine running Windows 10, there's not particular reason an AMD GPU wouldn't work
