TURN THE ATARI VCS INTO A FULLY-FUNCTIONAL PC
A true “hybrid” device, the Atari VCS is a uniquely versatile two-in-one machine for PC hobbyists and DIY hardware enthusiasts.
While the console-like Atari Mode delivers games, entertainment, web browsing and Google’s G-Suite of productivity apps that will satisfy most users; Atari VCS’ PC Mode provides users with a completely open and customizable PC experience for the TV or desktop via almost any operating system software. Existing PC game libraries, retro emulation platforms and other capabilities are easily unlocked with the right know-how.
Run your favorite OS
Install and boot from your own choice of PC operating system. The Atari VCS can support Windows, Ubuntu Linux, Chrome OS and others that a user may wish to add.
Powered by AMD
The Atari VCS is powered by AMD’s Ryzen R1606G processor with Radeon “Vega” graphics technology, a modern X86 PC architecture that makes it far more versatile than traditional games systems.
Fully Upgradeable Hardware
By providing an open M.2 SSD socket and standard SODIMM memory units, there is a pathway for advanced users to expand the Atari VCS hardware’s internal storage and enhance performance for more demanding PC games and applications.
A PC architecture means that the Atari VCS is plug-and-play compatible with most Bluetooth and USB PC peripherals, including mouse and keyboards, console game controllers and various other accessories many users already own.
CHROME ON THE ATARI VCS
With the built-in Google Chrome browser, checking emails and social media, catching up on work, streaming your favorite content, and online shopping on the Atari VCS is simple.
