GPD is launching a new handheld console which will be powered by AMD’s Ryzen 7 6800U. The upcoming Win 4 is only going to feature an AMD processor and there is no other model for Intel for now. Similar to the Win 3, the Win 4 is also going to feature a physical keyboard which will be hidden under a 6 inches screen.
The Win 4 is going to be powered by 8 Zen3+ cores and powerful RDNA2 graphics complete with 12 Compute Units, making it one of the best gaming experiences in this form factor. This isn’t the first time that a handheld console such as this is being powered by this APU. There are others in the market too including AYANEO, AYN, and AOKZOE.
As compared to the Win 3, the upcoming Win 4 is going to have some design refinements such as a removable analog stick with hall sensors which will allow the users to swap these based on the heights they prefer. The upcoming console is also said to be more ergonomic friendly. The keyboard on the Win 4 is also completely physical now, dropping the capacitive touch keys.
The new design with the keyboard closed looks a lot like the Sony PlayStation Portable Series (PSP). The Win 4 is going to come with a bigger screen and keyboard and a faster APU. It also has a fingerprint scanner and a trackpad nub.
So far there is no confirmation on the release date for the Win 4. As the crowdfunding campaign comes to an end, GPD is now going to start shipping the Win Max 2.
