GPD is back and it's not to play us a trick. The company has indeed just lifted the veil on Win 2 , a mini PC powerful enough to run GTA V, Skyrim or even Overwatch!
The shape does not change and the GPD Win 2 thus looks like a Nintendo DS in full puberty. Instead of a second touch screen, the device indeed embeds two analog sticks, a directional cross, four action buttons and a full physical keyboard in QWERTY format.
The case is also a little larger and thus reaches 16 cm wide and 9.9 cm high, with a thickness of around 2.5 cm.
GPD is back with the Win 2
GPD has not skimped on the finishes and the Win 2 is thus equipped with a case that gives pride of place to magnesium with a large removable plastic part located on the top cover. The future owners of the machine will indeed have the possibility of personalizing it to their guide by purchasing additional covers.
The PC has a complete connection, a connection grouped between its three pairs of triggers. In addition to the USB Type-C port used for its power supply, we will find a headphone jack, a USB-A port, a micro HDMI output and a micro SD card reader.
The technical sheet is not left out either and the GPD Win 2 will thus embed a 6-inch touch screen capable of displaying 1280 x 720 and an Intel Core M3-7Y30 clocked at 2.60 GHz in turbo mode with a Intel HD Graphics 615 graphics chipset and 8 GB of RAM.
An even more successful version
The SSD will reach 128 GB for its part and it will be quite possible to replace it with another model (M.2 format) by unscrewing the hatch located under the PC. Behind, there is also an audio chipset, two speakers, a microphone, WiFi 802.11 n, Bluetooth 4.2, a vibrator and two 4,900 mAh batteries supposed to give the machine an autonomy of six or eight hours.
The Win 2 will be delivered under Windows 10 Home 64-bit and it will therefore offer possibilities equivalent to those of a traditional PC. It will thus be possible to install emulators on it or even launch real titles.
According to its manufacturer, it should also excel in this use and thus be able to run GTA V in max at 38 frames per second or League of Legend at 60 frames per second. Skyrim would reach 53 frames per second in average configuration and World of Warcraft 30 frames per second.
If the adventure tempts you, know that GPD has launched a campaign on Indiegogo and the manufacturer thus offered the machine at $ 649 with a shipment scheduled for May 2018.
