GPD Win Max 2 is a mini gaming laptop with Intel Core i7-1280P or Ryzen 7 6800U options and up to 32 GB RAM – Liliputing

GPD’s next handheld gaming computer will be a mini-laptop powered by a selection of an Intel Core i7-1280P Alder Lake processor with 14 cores, 20 wires and Intel Iris Xe graphics or an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U chip with 8 cores, 16 threads and Radeon 680M graphics based on RDNA 2 architecture.

First announced in Marchthe next GPD Win Max 2 has a 10.1-inch screen and supports up to 32GB of RAM, has room for two SSDs, a QWERTY keyboard and built-in game controls. It will be available for pre-order via a crowdfunding campaign later this year, and GPD has started sharing reality pictures and videos shows off the new design.

Win Max 2 measures 227 x 160 x 23 mm (8.9 ″ x 6.3 ″ x 0.9 ″), making it slightly larger than previous generation model (which had an 8-inch screen and measures 207 x 145 x 26 mm (8.1 inches x 5.7 inches x 1 inch)). But it is not that much larger thanks to narrower frames surrounding the screen.

Win Max 2 has a screen of 2560 x 1600 pixels, although GPD configures the resolution to 1920 x 1200 pixels in Windows for better gaming performance. Users should be able to adjust this if desired.

GPD had previously chosen lower resolution screens such as the 1280 x 800 pixel panel in the original GPD Win Max, as you generally get better performance from integrated graphics when you do not ask the GPU to print as many pixels. But the company says that Intel and AMD’s latest chips both provide significant improvements in integrated graphics, allowing many new games to run at 45 to 60 frames per second with resolutions.

The screen also supports 10-point capacitive touch input and has an active digitizer that supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity when used with a Microsoft Surface Pen or other pen that supports the Microsoft Pen Protocol.

Intel chip models use LPDDR5 5200 MHz memory, have two Thunderbolt ports and consume 20 to 64 watts of power, while AMD versions peak at 30 watts and have two USB4 ports that are not Thunderbolt certified. But a GPD Win Max 2 with an AMD processor has faster memory, with LPDDR5 6400 MHz RAM.

Both versions will be available with 16 GB or 32 GB RAM and 1 TB or 2 TB PCIe NVMe solid state storage. There is also an M.2 2230 slot that can be used to add a second SSD without removing the back cover, as well as a second slot for an optional 4G LTE module.

There is also a microSD card reader with support for cards up to 2TB and speeds up to 300MB / s, a built-in camera (below the screen, which the camera on GPD P2 Max mini-laptop), four-speaker, a built-in fan, a backlit keyboard and an aluminum-magnesium alloy chassis.

The ports include two Thunderbolt 4 or USB4 ports, three USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, a full-size HDMI 2.1 port and the laptop has a larger battery than the original GPD Win Max and supports 65W fast charging.

The system is actively cooled, which means that there is a fan inside the housing that will generate some noise. But it would be strange to send a PDA with so much horsepower, place it as a gaming machine and not has active cooling.

GPD has updated the design of the Win Max a bit, with the power button moved to the side of the device (previous models had it above the keyboard). There is also a fingerprint reader built into the power button.

And the keyboard has been redesigned, with larger Caps Lock, Tab and number keys, among others. Although touchwriting was not that difficult for Win Max, it should be easier on Win Max 2.

GPD also adds protection for the joysticks to the mix, allowing you to transform the aesthetics of Win Max 2 so that it looks like a more traditional laptop rather than a gaming device.

There are still dual analog levers, a D-Pad, X, Y, A and B buttons and other keys placed above the keyboard that let you hold Win Max 2 like an oversized Nintendo DS, but you can cover them so that only the trackpad is visible.

There are axle buttons with linear triggers, twin vibration motors and 3-axis gravity and 3-axis gyroscopic sensors for motion controls. There are also two buttons on the bottom that can be mapped by users to perform a variety of actions.

Overall, the Win Max 2 sounds like a monster of a gaming PDA that is an upgrade in almost every way compared to previous generations of models … but which I have to imagine will be quite expensive, given its specifications. And it can make it tough sell when Steam tires starts at just $ 399, and more coming PDAs (with less horsepower) have even lower starting prices.

That said, Steam Deck does not have a physical keyboard and although it has some of the most powerful graphics available in a PDA, Win Max 2 will have a significant advantage when it comes to CPU power, which can make it better solution for people looking for a handheld gaming computer that can be used as a full-featured, versatile PC.

Prices and availability will most likely be announced closer to release.
