Every GPD Win handheld gaming PC to date has been powered by an Intel processor. The company started with low-power Intel Atom chips, but last year’s GPD Win Max shipped with a 25 watt Intel Core i5-1035G7 Ice Lake processor and this year’s GPD Win 3 is supports up to an Intel Core i7-1165G7 chip running at up to 28 watts.

But the company’s next handheld gaming computer might buck the trend – the company is reportedly testing an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U with AMD Zen 3 CPU architecture in a next-gen device that could ship as the GPD Win Max 2.

That could make the system very competitive with the AYA Neo handheld which is powered by a previous-gen Ryzen 5 4500U chip based on Zen 2 architecture. One advantage the Neo has? It’ll ship sooner – it’s up for pre-order now through a crowdfunding campaign. But the starting price keeps going up.

(Not actually the Win Max 2)

  1. It would be a great device, but im not a fan of losing thunderbolt 😀 Its always fun seeing these small things connected to an eGPU 😀

  2. If they could trim down the size of the keyboard, use a 16:9 7″ or 8″ screen, and make the over thing smaller and lighter than the Win Max, I think it would be a winner.

  3. It’s about time GPD got with the program. A small 5800U equipped UMPC would be awesome so long as they can keep the price competitive and get it released by Q3 2021.

    1. I wouldn’t expect GPD to put particularly cheap prices on this. In fact as how things are going I don’t think it’ll be easy to just buy this before scalpers buy them up like they buy nowdays everything that has a Ryzen or a modern GPU in it.
