You may remember the announcement of the re-launch of the Atari Video Console System back in the summer of 2017, though by now you may have decided that it is going the way of the ZX Spectrum Vega+. If you do still hold hope, Atari is once again testing your patience by announcing another delay to the end of 2019. There is a reason however, which you may or may not find acceptable. They will be upgrading the AMD Ryzen chip at the heart of the system, with the new generation of Vega graphics offering modern performance. Atari is also suggesting this will offer much quieter and cooler performance in a quote over at The Inquirer.
"The Atari VCS launched on Indiegogo and was originally set to arrive in spring 2018, but the company has announced that it will now arrive at the butt-end of 2019 (and that projection is just for the US and Canada)."
