GPD Win Max pre-sale price for Chinese market leaked: 4,999 yuan (US$706) for a handheld gaming computer with Thunderbolt 3 and quad-core Ice Lake processor
GPD has been teasing the Win Max handheld computer for quite some time now with many fans anxious about the pricing for the gaming-focused device. A report from Chinese media outlet ITHome has included a promo image of the GPD Win Max along with the supposed prices for the domestic market. 4,999 yuan (US$706) is listed as the pre-sale price and those who come late to the party will have to pay up 5,799 yuan (US$819) for the nifty mini laptop.
Those willing to cough up 4,999 yuan during the pre-sale period for the GPD Win Max will eventually get their hands on a dedicated gaming machine that is stuffed to the brim with decent components. A quad-core Ice Lake Intel Core i5-1035G7 is in charge of processing and there is 16 GB of LPDDR4 RAM @3733 MHz onboard. Gamers will likely be attracted by the built-in Xbox 360 controller, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity option for an eGPU, and the 8-inch, 1280x800, 16:10 screen. GPD really has packed a lot into what it calls the “world’s smallest handheld gaming PC”.
Obviously, prices for the GPD Win Max for other regions, such as North America and Europe, will be different to the ones listed for the Chinese market. However, this supposed leak of the prices for China should give an idea of how much the handheld gaming laptop might cost elsewhere. GPD is already preparing review samples of the Win Max for delivery (see images below) and the official Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the little laptop is scheduled to begin in May.
