The GPD P2 Max 2022 will launch early next year and with a handy performance uplift over its predecessor. The newer model will share plenty of features with the original P2 Max though, including its 8.9-inch and 1600p display.

GPD has announced that it will be refreshing the P2 Max in the new year, a machine that it released in 2019. For reference, the original P2 Max relied on a Core m3-8100Y processor, an Amber Lake processor that Windows 11 does not support. The P2 Max also has an 8.9-inch display that GPD appears to have brought over to the 2022 edition.

However, the P2 Max 2022 has the newer Pentium Silver N6000 processor, a quad-core SoC from Intel's Jasper Lake series. The 10 nm chip has a 6 W TDP and can boost to 3.3 GHz when needed. The Pentium Silver N6000 should offer a 25% performance uplift over the Core m3-8100Y found in the original P2 Max, according to our database.

The switch to a newer processor will bring other advantages too, but the P2 Max 2022 appears to share many of its components with its predecessor. GPD will release the P2 Max 2022 soon, although it has confirmed how much the device will cost. Still, it claims that the P2 Max 2022 will be cheaper than the P2 Max, which started at US$529 on Indiegogo.

This time, GPD will begin by selling the P2 Max 2022 through its AliExpress store. The new P2 Max retains the 1600p resolution of its predecessor as well, along with its 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB PCIe SSD. It is unclear if GPD plans to hold a crowdfunding campaign for the P2 Max 2022 or not.
