GPD has now revealed full specs for the Duo, its first attempt at building a twin-display laptop. Not only does the GPD Duo feature a pair of OLED displays, but it also packs an AMD Ryzen 7 8840U GPU, an 80 Wh battery and more ports than the average laptop. GPD has integrated other features, too like an OCuLink port for connecting an eGPU to improve gaming performance.

GPD has now shared full specifications for the Duo, a dual-screen laptop that it began teasing at the end of last month. To recap, the company showcased the GPD Duo's design and a few other details roughly a week ago. While GPD continues to drip feed information on X (formerly Twitter), it has provided a complete device rundown on WeChat. In summary, the GPD Duo will run on the following hardware:

  • AMD Ryzen 7 8840U APU
  • LPDDR5X RAM clocked at 7,500 MT/s
  • PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD
  • 80 Wh battery

Additionally, GPD reports that the Ryzen 7 8840U will run at 35 W by default with the option of increasing its TDP to 60 W on demand. Moreover, GPD appears to be planning at least four memory configurations ranging from 16 GB to 96 GB of RAM and 512 GB to 8 TB of storage. Incidentally, the latter is possible thanks to a pair of M.2 2280 slots; the Duo has soldered RAM, though.

Furthermore, GPD has clarified that the Duo's primary OLED display outputs at 2,880 x 1,800 pixels in a 16:10 aspect ratio with a 60 Hz refresh rate and 500 nits peak brightness. On top of that, the Duo has a plethora of ports across its rear, left and right-hand sides, including an RJ45 port, an SD card reader and a full-sized HDMI 1.4a port. Also, GPD has equipped the device with an OCuLink port for connecting external eGPUs like the GPD G1 and ONEXPLAYER ONEXGPU, all within a 209.65 x 297 mm housing.

Unsurprisingly, the GPD Duo is targeting the ASUS Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED and the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i (curr. $1,800 - used on Amazon). However, the inclusion of OCuLink and a video input put the GPD Duo in contention with the MINISFORUM V3, as does a Ryzen 7 8840U APU and its Radeon 780M iGPU. Although pricing and availability remain unknown for now, we imagine that GPD will not wait long before confirming both.
