GPD has announced a major change for the Duo, its first dual-display laptop. Previously equipped with the Ryzen 7 8840U like the Win Mini 2024, the GPD Duo will actually be available with AMD's Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 APU and its new Radeon 890M iGPU.

GPD has announced a significant upgrade for the Duo, its first dual-screen device. To recap, the company outlined full specifications for the GPD Duo earlier this month, details of which we have covered in an earlier article. However, it has already swapped out the Ryzen 7 8840U APU that it claimed would underpin the device.

To recap, GPD already sells a few Ryzen 7 8840U-powered devices, including the Win Mini 2024 (curr. $1,203.55 on Amazon). Since then, AMD has announced Strix Point, its first Zen 5 APUs that also contain RDNA 3+ iGPUs. As such, it should come as no surprise to learn that GPD has abandoned the Ryzen 7 8840U in its halo device for its next-generation successor, which AMD has called the Ryzen AI 9 HX 370.

For reference, the Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 combines four AMD Zen 5 CPU cores with eight Zen 5c CPU cores, the latter being slower and more energy-efficient than the former. Theoretically, this CPU core combination is as powerful as sixteen Zen 4 cores, which is available in the Ryzen 9 7940HX and its other derivatives. Additionally, the Ryzen AI 9 HX 370 integrates the Radeon 890M, a 16 Compute Unit (CU) part that appears to deliver over a 50% performance improvement compared to the Radeon 780M at a 54 W TDP. While GPD has not shared a launch date for the Duo yet, it has confirmed that the device will enter internal testing next month.
