Dell has announced a portable gaming PC from Alienware at CES 2020 called the Concept UFO, which looks and functions very similar to a Nintendo Switch. According to a press release:

Concept UFO features an 8-inch screen with 1900×1200 resolution. It also includes detachable controllers, so you can game in a range of modes: as one unit, with controllers attached to the screen; separating the controllers and using the kickstand on a surface to game or stream your favorite show (for example, a table, or a tray on an airplane or train); or connect it to an external display and play using the detached controller, or use a mouse and keyboard as you would any other PC.

Although details of its processing power and other specs are currently scarce, the Concept UFO will feature a 10th-gen Intel Core processor and Thunderbolt connectivity, making it much more powerful than Nintendo‘s portable home console. According to the same press release, the company has “spent the last few months testing and enhancing the buttons, the weight, all to strike a perfect balance between performance, ultra-mobility, and battery life.”

Dell also says the UFO will allow users to play AAA PC titles on-the-go and that thousand of hours have been put into producing the controller design and ergonomics in order to deliver “uncompromised” performance.

Specs and prices are expected to arrive at a later date.

In other gaming news, Sony unveiled the official logo of the PlayStation 5 at CES 2020.
