GPD Win Max 2: AMD Ryzen 7 6800U and Intel Core i7-1260P configurations confirmed for July-bound handheld
GPD has outlined configurations for the Win Max 2, an upcoming handheld powered by powerful AMD or Intel silicon. For context, little over a week has passed since GPD provided hands-on shots of the Win Max 2, discussed separately. Now, it has confirmed that it plans to offer the Win Max 2 with 12 SKUs, including several with LTE connectivity.
Specifically, all machines will come with at least 1 TB of M.2 2280 storage. Additionally, GPD will split the 12 SKUs equally between the Core i7-1260P and Ryzen 7 6800U editions. As such, both processor options will start with 1 TB of storage and 16 GB of RAM, before rising to 32 GB of RAM. Moreover, there will be LTE options for these four SKUs, bringing the total to eight. Finally, GPD will sell four SKUs with an additional 1 TB of storage by populating the machine's M.2 2230 drive bay. Hence, the various Win Max 2 SKUs will look like this:
AMD Ryzen 7 6800U/Intel Core i7-1260P
- 1 TB M.2 2280/16 GB RAM
- 1 TB M.2 2280/32 GB RAM
- 1 TB M.2 2280/16 GB RAM/LTE
- 1 TB M.2 2280/32 GB RAM/LTE
- 1 TB M.2 2280/1 TB M.2 2230/16 GB RAM
- 1 TB M.2 2280/1 TB M.2 2230/32 GB RAM
- 1 TB M.2 2280/1 TB M.2 2230/16 GB RAM/LTE
- 1 TB M.2 2280/1 TB M.2 2230/32 GB RAM/LTE
For reference, the Win Max 2 has a 10.1-inch touchscreen display operating at 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. Also, all machines support LPDDR5 RAM, although AMD versions support 6,400 MHz memory compared to the 5,200 MHz equivalent in their Intel-based counterparts. Intel models gain Thunderbolt 4 connectivity though; AMD models must settle for USB4 instead. The Win Max 2 should be orderable from next month. Unfortunately, GPD has not confirmed any prices yet, but we do know that the device will be available through a crowdfunding campaign initially.
