GPD Win 4 handheld gaming PC renderings exposed
With the debut of Win Max 2 this year, GPD is now investing in the development of new projects. GPD is rumored to be busy with Win 4 development, replacing Win 3 with a 5.5-inch screen, which was released in late 2020 and powered by Intel’s Tiger Lake platform.
Recently, some netizens have exposed the rendering of GPD Win 4. The design looks very similar to Sony’s previous PSP or PS Vita handhelds, and may even be mistaken for Sony’s new generation of handhelds. The previous generation of GPD Win 3 is also similar in design to Sony’s classic UX series, and it seems that Sony’s industrial design is very popular.
Different from GPD Win 3, the new generation of GPD Win 4 uses the AMD platform and is equipped with Ryzen 7 6800U. This Zen 3+ architecture product, code-named Rembrandt, supports USB 4, PCIe 4.0, and LPDDR5/DDR5 memory. It is manufactured using a 6nm process and is configured with up to 8 cores and 16 threads. IGPU is equipped with 12 CU units based on the RDNA 2 architecture. Compared with the previous generation products, the performance will be greatly improved. The Ryzen 7 6800U seems to be the only option for GPD Win 4, which means there won’t be a version for Intel platforms.
The screen of GPD Win 4 is slightly increased to 6 inches. According to the relevant person, there are four more important changes. The platform performance is upgraded; the joystick uses a Hall sensor; the keyboard is upgraded to physical keys instead of capacitive touch keys; the body adopts a more ergonomic design.
Compared with Win Max 2, which is also equipped with Ryzen 7 6800U, GPD Win 4 seems to be more attractive to users, but its specific release time and price are still unclear.
