GPD Win 4 design, screen size and tentative processor options revealed by new leak
Our in-house benchmarks of the GPD Win Max 2 showed that its Intel and AMD variants were formidable competitors against the Steam Deck. Now that it has been out and about for a while, it is time to shift focus to its more compact cousin, the GPD Win 4. It succeeds the GPD Win 3 and brings forth some interesting improvements.
YouTuber Cary Golomb posted one of the first images of the GPD Win 4 on his Twitter. It only showcases the rear panel of the console in both colourways, black and white. Based on the images, there don't appear to be too many design changes, but Cary mentions that it features a larger 6-inch screen. The sliding keyboard has been retained, although the handheld bears an uncanny resemblance to the PSP/PS Vita, as pointed out by multiple commenters.
Under the hood, the GPD Win 4 is likely to feature a sixth-generation AMD processor with an RDNA2 GPU, likely the same Ryzen 7 6800U found on the Win Max 2. Whether or not an Intel Alder Lake version will be available remains to be seen. It'll be interesting to see how the GPD Win 4 performs with the new AMD/Intel silicon, as dissipating heat in such a form factor can be tricky. There is no word about when the GPD Win 4 will be announced. Cary states that he's had the console for a while, so an official announcement shouldn't be too far off.
