The GDP has recently announced its newest handheld gaming device – the Win Max 2. The Win Max 2 is a portable gaming device featuring a 10.1 inches 1600p display. This device is quite different in terms of design as compared to other gaming devices like Valve’s Steam Deck, AYANEO, AYN, or AOKZOE devices. These devices come with gamepads on either side of the main display.
The Win Max 2, on the other hand, is a relatively smaller laptop which has a full keyboard but also a gamepad. In short, it serves as a fully functional laptop, while also being a gaming device at the same time. It has everything you might need for gaming including a touch/stylus input display support.
Customers buying the Win Max 2 will have a choice between two configurations. The first option is Intel’s Core i5-1260P Alder Lake CPU which features a total of 12 cores and 16 threads. It comes with full 96 Execution Units based on the Intel Xe-LP architecture. The second option is AMD’s Ryzen 7 6800 which comes with a total of 8 cores and 16 threads equipped on a Zen3+ processor and paired with the Radeon 680M RDNA2 graphics. The FP32 core count of 768 remains the same on both configurations.
External GPUs are also supported on the Win Max 2 with help from the USB4 in case of the AMD configuration or the Thunderbolt4 in case of Intel. There is an optional 4G LTE modem too which will cost an additional $ 89. The device comes with microSD card support.
Moving on to the storage, there are multiple options on the device starting from 128 GB going all the way up to 2 TB NVMe SSD. The Win Max 2 can support two SSDs which have to be connected through either 2280 or 223 M.2 SSDs.
The crowdfunding campaign is yet to begin but ETA PRIME has jumped the gun on this one and already tested the device with its i5-1260P variant. You can head over to the company’s YouTube channel to see more videos on gameplays featuring the Ryzen 6800U.
