The GPD Win 4 (2023) is a handheld gaming PC with an AMD Ryzen 7040U “Phoenix” processor and a 6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel touchscreen display squeezed between a set of game controllers. But you can also slide the screen upward to reveal a QWERTY keyboard for thumb typing.

GPD launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the Win 4 (2023) this summer, and now the company has begun shipping units to backers of that campaign.

The company says it shipped the first 358 handhelds earlier this week, and I’ve seen some reports that backers have started to receive them.

So far the company says it’s shipped:

  • 250 GPD Win 4 units with Ryzen 7 7840U processors, 32GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage
  • 108 units with Ryzen 7 7840U processors, 64GB of RAM and 4TB of storage

In the latest update to the crowdfunding page, GPD says its offices will continue shipping more units in October, after taking a week off for China’s National Day holiday, but there’s no word on when the company will ship cheaper models with Ryzen 5 7640U processors.

For what it’s worth, though, I can’t currently find a way to order a model with a Ryzen 7 7840U chip if you didn’t manage to reserve one during crowdfunding. But you can still pay $699 and up for a Ryzen 5 7640U model thanks to an Indiegogo InDemand campaign (which basically acts as a pre-order page now that crowdfunding has officially ended). GPD says the estimated ship date for orders placed now is October, 2023.

You can also order a Ryzen 5 7640U model from AliExpress, where they’re going for around $680 or $695.

A few other updates worth noting:

  • GPD released a BIOS update for the Win 4 recently, which is said to address audio issues on some models with newer motherboards. Customers may want to install it manually if they receive a Win 4 that’s not running the latest firmware.
  • There’s also a new version of the WinControls app that’s said to address an issue where some early users were experiencing dead zones when using the joysticks.

  1. Hey GPD, if you want to sell way more computers, then make a 6 or 7 inch clamshell that can kinda fit in your pocket and than has the Win Max 2’s keyboard, but without the touchpad and controllers so it is really small. Then make the controllers attatchable on the sides. Put a nipple mounse in the middle of the keyboard(a real nipple, not the optical cheap one). Put at least 3 or 4 USB ports on the back. Have Intel or AMD available.
    AND THEY WILL SELL LIKE CRRRRAAAAAAAZZZZZZY, because you can use it as your regular computer, yet fit in the pocket, yet use to game.
    Why can’t you understand how valuable this is to us and to you!?!?

    1. Wouldn’t it be better to have a phone instead, maybe one running x86. Then have it modular. Like a snap-on keyboard, snap-on controller, and maybe a Laptop-dock.

      That way the computer and screen portion are truly pocketable, and they are as big as possible to improve the experience. Whilst the other module (eg Keyboard) can just slip out of your other pocket, and it too can be made as big as possible to improve ergonomics and battery life.

      Razer had a similar vision to this year’s ago. They had the Project Linda lapdock. They had the Pro-Dock for your nightstand, desktop, or TV. And they had the JungleCat controller. All of that was modular to the Razer Phone 2. They didn’t have a keyboard, but they could have made one, especially if it used pogo pins and magnetically snapped on.
      ….. obviously that was running AndroidOS with ARMv8, but it could’ve been done with the likes of Windows10 Pro and the AMD r7-6800u, with the frequency/cores dependent on which form-factor it was running as. Microsoft themselves was close with the HP Elite X3, which ran the QSD 821 and their new Windows10 Mobile system with Native Desktop support through Continuum.

  2. I hope they upgrade the 4G module. At least an LTE Cat 6 modem. There’s a noticeable jump in real world speeds between the current module’s Cat 4 modem to Cat 6.

    1. If you look at the Processor and Graphics sections of the table, you can see that the first two column headings are switched (though they are otherwise accurate).

        1. Hey Brad, what is your current collection of devices?

          Might make for an interesting new post. You can input the devices that are best for your specific wants, or personal or subjective favourites.

          I like to think the GPD Win-Max-3 would rate the highest, if money was no object. Otherwise the ASUS ROG Ally probably holds the best value for money, with the Valve SteamDeck coming up close. The smaller-frame of the GPD Win-4 to me comes as a detriment to ergonomics, cooling and battery life, whilst it being the same size as the GPD Win-Max-3 in a practical sense (both indoors, portable devices, needing a backpack).

          The even smaller crowd, where they are pocketable, are dominated by ARM products. In particular, the Retroid Pocket 3+ and Anbernic RG 405m.
