GPD Win 4: eGPU support confirmed for AMD Ryzen 7 6800U and Radeon 680M powered gaming handheld
GPD has finally confirmed the Win 4, following several extension leaks. As expected, the GPD Win 4 will be available in two colours, with the white variant highlighting the device's Sony PSP characteristics. However, this is only true with the GPD Win 4's display sat between its gamepad controls. Like the Win 3, the Win 4 has a sliding display, which should improve ergonomics when gaming. Based on current announcements, the AYA NEO SLIDE will be the GPD Win 4's only true competitor in this regard.
So far, GPD has confirmed that the Win 4 has a 6-inch display operating natively at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Likely an IPS touch panel, the compact display will be joined by dome-switch keys and a fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication. Moreover, GPD will offer the Win 4 with the AMD Ryzen 7 6800U, a Zen 3+ based APU that also has a Radeon 680M iGPU with 12 Compute Units (CUs). Furthermore, the GPD Win 4 will come with 16 GB or 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM running at 6,400 MHz, as well as 1 TB or 2 TB of PCIe storage.
GPD adds that the Win 4 will support eGPUs via USB 4 ports. Unfortunately, GPD still remains quiet on when it will start selling the Win 4. Presumably, the company will provide more details about the device's launch within the next few weeks. Typically, GPD funds device production through crowdfunding campaigns. Until GPD announces otherwise, we imagine that it will launch the Win 4 on Indiegogo before selling the gaming handheld through major retailers, such as Amazon.
