1JaxonHTue 26th Dec 2017 For those who don't know, GPD has been making PC-based handhelds for years. They are a team of expert hardware designers in China chasing the dream of AAA gaming on the go. The first GPD Win was an impressive device, but it had its shortcomings. It wasn't quite powerful enough to run Dolphin, and could only barely manage to run a few select 7th gen games at 30fps (Dark Souls, Fallout New Vegas, etc). The battery life was barely over 2 hours. A design oversight with regard to the heatsink meant heat dissipation was poor, and owners of the device often complained about how hot it would get. It would also inadvertently turn the screen on when the lid was closed because it would press against the keyboard keys. All of these issues have been addressed for the new GPD Win 2. Here's some information about GPD Win 2. The most powerful handheld ever, the appearance design was developed by a German Red Dot Award winning team. The product supports more than 1,000,000 internet games. Enjoy gaming the second you open the box. The WIN 2 is equipped with a 6-inch touch screen from Sharp Corporation with a viewing angle up to 178°. The screens area has been increased by 9% compared to the previous generation WIN. It utilizes In-Cell full lamination technology and fourth generation Corning Gorilla Glass. With a screen resolution of 1280×720, it has a PPI 2.53 times greater than that of a typical 24-Inch desktop monitor. The WIN 2 also has a capacitive touch screen. Featuring a seventh generation Intel®️ Kaby Lake Core™️ m3-7Y30 processor, with performance close to that of the Intel®️ Core™️ i7-3770K. With its CPU-Z single-core performance score of 1244 points, there is no stutter running the latest AAA-class games when using low game effects. Complimenting the m3-7y30 CPU cores, the m3-7y30 also features 9th generation Intel®️ HD Graphics 615 with 24 EU execution units and a maximum dynamic frequency of 900MHz. Game frame rates have increased by a facor of 2.2 times compared to the previous generation GPD WIN. Games are smoother and more realistic. The device features a M.2 2242 port, with extremely high read/write speed capability. Game loading is 4 times faster compared to a mechanical hard disk or eMMC. Equipped with 2×4900mAh large-capacity and high-density polymer lithium batteries. The GPD WIN 2 has a maximum game play battery-life of over 6 hours. Our product is also the first game handheld to support PD 2.0 fast charge, allowing the battery to be charged to half full within 45 minutes. Brand new Gamepad design with two 3D joysticks from ALPS Japan, featuring built-in dual-vibration motors to ensure you get immersed in the game. Even the slightest vibration can still be sensible, making you more comfortable than your imagination. Designed with a novel PC-class cooling solution, featuring a high-power turbofan which can adjust rpm dynamically from 2000~10000rpm. When the temperature of the CPU core is between 20 ℃~80 ℃, the 60-speed dynamic temperature control will kick in to best balance efficiency. The GPD Win 2 can run DOOM at 507p resolution at 40-50fps ... and that's on higher difficulties. Definitely beyond what the Switch version runs at. Now, part of that is likely due to ID Tech 6 and Vulcan- they couldn't get it running nearly this good with OpenGL, but it's impressive nonetheless. That's without a dynamic res that's dropping and actual low settings as opposed to sub-low with Switch. It means Wolfenstein II will also likely run at 30fps minimum. For other games it seems to be right about on par with Switch. Skyrim Special Edition looks to be equivalent, as does Rocket League (runs full 720p without shadows, but doesn't quite hold 60fps, so it's give and take from the Switch version). But the fact we have a device on par with Switch (technically more powerful but due to PC being less optimized results are about on par) that can run any PC game is incredible. It also runs Dolphin. Metroid Prime, Super Mario Galaxy, Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, Xenoblade Chronicles... all confirmed running on GPD Win 2. Some of them at high settings. It comes with a 128gb Solid State Drive, which can be easily upgraded via the removable panel on the back, and you can upgrade up to 1 TB. It also comes with a microSD slot thanks to consumer demand (they were going to get rid of it but they didn't). So you could slap a 400 GB microSD in for GameCube, Wii and PS2 games, leaving 1TB for Steam and PC gaming. It also comes with a standard USB-A 3.0 port, and mini-HDMI out. Oh, and it uses USB-C PD just like Nintendo Switch 🎶 Hallelujah!!! 🎶 DOOMSkyrim Special EditionRocket LeagueMetroid PrimeFire Emblem Radiant DawnZelda Twilight PrincessDragon Quest VIIIUltra Street Fighter IVFinal Fantasy XIIIFallout 4 Edited on Fri 13th July, 2018 @ 22:36 by JaxonH PLAYING NS: MH Rise Steam: MH Rise PS5: MOST EXCITED FOR 2022 NS: MH Rise Sunbreak, AC Ezio Collection, Bayonetta 3, Splatoon 3, Triangle Strategy, Kirby Forgotten Land, Mario Rabbids, Zelda BotW 2 Jesus is Lord.
