This summer One Netbook launched a mini-laptop with detachable game controllers called the OneGx1. But while it was designed to look like a tiny gaming laptop, it didn’t really have horsepower to handle modern games.

Now the company is starting to show off a new model that does.

The One Netbook OneGx Pro is a little laptop with a 7 inch display, detachable gamepads, and an Intel Core i7-1160G7 Tiger Lake Y series processor featuring Intel Iris Xe graphics. Pricing and availability haven’t been announced yet, but the company has released a demo video showing the OneGx Pro in action.

While the video is in Chinese, you can see a person run through a handful of games including Red Dead: Redemption 2, Monster Hunter: World, GTA 5, and Final Fantasy: XIV.

Frame rates seem to range from around 45 fps to 70 fps, which should be good enough for smooth gameplay on most of those titles.

That’s largely thanks to the Intel Iris integrated GPU which features 96 execution units and support for speeds up to 1.1 GHz. It’s the same GPU used for Intel’s Core i7-1165G7 U-series processor, but the Core i7-1160G7 is a lower-power chip with a TDP range of 7-15 watts rather than 12-28 watts.

By comparison, the OneGx1 that came out this summer is powered by a 7-watt Intel Core i5-10210Y processor with Intel UHD graphics and while it’s fine for basic computing, it struggles with recent games.

It’s likely that One Netbook rushed the OneGx1 to market in order to have a mini gaming laptop to compete with GPD’s much more powerful GPD Win Max even though the Intel Tiger Lake chips the company wanted to use weren’t available yet. But the OneGx1 wasn’t really all that competitive. The OneGx Pro might be.

With a design that makes the little laptop look like a tiny replicate of an Alienware Area-51m and optional support for a set of game controllers that slide onto the side of the computer, there’s no mistaking the OneGx series for anything other than a gaming PC. But it’s also got a few other unusual features for a mini-laptop including optional support for a 4G LTE or 5G modem.

Here’s a refresher on the specs for One Netbook’s little gaming laptops:

Update: One Netbook has released a video showing gameplay, frame rates, and resource usage for three titles:

And here are a few videos of the OneGx1 I recorded this summer. The new OneGx pro should look virtually identical. The key differences are under the hood:

  1. What??? Still no thunderbolt???
    What are they doing with that chip? Such a waste of resources when they could implement at least 2 thunderbolt ports…

      1. Noiceeee πŸ™‚ finally πŸ™‚ a 7” with thunderbolt3 that I can dock external gpu for graphics when at home πŸ™‚

  2. Impressive igpu performance in such a small package. Have to admit I want one but it feels a risky purchase and I prefer the GPD implementation on the Max with built in joypad and larger screen. Just looks more solid and everything is properly integrated – so no snapping the controllers off or losing them or leaving them at home.

  3. I wonder if the fixed the controller FW/SW/drivers and the wobbly attachment reviewers saw on the OneGX1.

  4. Interesting device but I’m not sure I’d risk paying this much money for a device from a small company. I’m guessing the Pro model will noticeably be more expensive.

    I assume the quality control is as bad as GPD. While not the majority, it seems their devices have issues at a higher rate than bigger companies but still asking for nearly a $1000 USD. Too risky.

  5. How would the CPU performance compare between the OneGX1 and OneGX Pro? Not really interested in gaming but am interested in a powerful UMPC with LTE.

    I wonder how much the Pro will cost. I’m already hesitant in buying the OneGX1 based on price due to the usual low QA/QC and the nearly non-existent post-sales support of these. small companies including GPD.

    1. I hope their next One Mix will have LTE.

      This OneGX is way too ugly and chunky for me to look at and use on a daily basis. I just don’t understand why gamers like this kind of look.

      1. That’s exactly what I’m waiting for: a successor to the One Mix 1S+ with LTE. I don’t need a ton of horsepower, but a tiny laptop with LTE connectivity on the go would be very nice.

        Looks aside, I’d have bought the OneGX1 with LTE, but I would like something I can use as a tablet too. (I’d be running it with Linux and something touch-friendly like Gnome or Phosh.)
