GPD has launched its latest handheld games console on Indiegogo, and it has already proven exceedingly popular with fans. The Tiger Lake-powered machine has raised over US$1.1 million from backers in less than a day. The GPD Win3 will begin shipping in May 2021 and is available to order with a Core i5-1135G7 or a Core i7-1165G7 processor. Both CPUs feature Intel's latest Iris Xe Graphics GPUs.

It has been a few months since GPD revealed the Win3, which the company showcased in November. GPD has been teasing the device since then, showcasing how well the Win3 can supposedly run triple-A games on its Tiger Lake processor. Now, GPD has brought the Win3 to crowdfunding website Indiegogo, where it has garnered a lot of attention from fans. At the time of writing, the campaign has received over US$1.1 million in funding from 1,255 backers, but these numbers are increasing rapidly.

Currently, GPD is selling two versions of the Win3 in an 'All Black' finish. The cheaper of the two comes with an Intel Core i5-1135G7 chipset, which starts at US$799. There is also a Core i7-1165G7 edition for US$899, which is also the price for which the limited edition 'Silver Black' model sells. All SKUs come with Intel Iris Xe Graphics and 16 GB of LPDDR4x-4266 dual-channel RAM. However, the GPU in the Core i5 model has fewer Execution Units (80) than the Core i7 version (96). Nonetheless, both GPUs have a maximum clock speed of 1,300 MHz.

These chipsets power a 5.5-inch and 16:9 IPS display, which resolves at 1,280 x 720 pixels with a density of 267 PPI. The display also supports touch inputs and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

One of the highlights of the Win3 is its 'screen slide design', in our opinion. Sliding up the display reveals a full QWERTY keyboard, making the Win3 more versatile and comfortable than many of its competitors. Additionally, the Win3 can be purchased with a dock that can connect to an external display. You cannot purchase the dock separately, but it is a US$50 surcharge for all SKUs. You can view the full I/O of the GPD Win3 below.
