The GPD WIN Max 2021 is a revolutionary handheld gaming PC that combines the best features of GPD’s Win 2 and Micro PC. This ultrabook is designed to deliver top-notch performance for both gaming and productivity. Powered by an Intel 10th Gen Core ™ i5-1035G7 CPU with an integrated 11th Gen Intel Iris Plus Graphics 940, this Windows 10 handheld offers excellent performance in any scenario.
The 8 inch H-IPS display with a 10 point touch screen is stunning. With a brightness of 500 nits and DC dimming without flickering, it remains bright when needed and transitions seamlessly when not. This screen is perfect not only for gaming but also for work applications such as Photoshop that require a high-quality display.
GPD has done an excellent job of combining the ultrabook PC with gaming handheld layouts in the design of the WIN Max. The base features a QWERTY chiclet-style full keyboard layout with backlight and a built-in touchpad that supports gestures with up to three-fingers and push-down operations.
The high-quality Japan Alps manufactured dual analogue sticks are clickable for L3/R3 buttons. The double layer silk-printed ABXY gaming buttons are comfortable for extended gaming sessions. The L1/L2 and R1/R2 buttons have highly-reliable Panasonic micro switches. This works as a Microsoft Xbox controller and usually requires no additional setting up on this mini laptop with platforms such as Steam, GoG, or Epic Games.
Connectivity is another highlight of the WIN Max. The new WiFi 6 802.11ax standard supports up to 300Mb/sec transfer rate, and Bluetooth 5 supports up to seven connections, ensuring fast and reliable wireless connectivity. Wired connectivity is equally impressive, with an HDMI 2.0b port providing high-quality output to a TV or monitor, an RJ45 Ethernet port for high-speed data transfer, two USB Type-A ports, one USB 3.1 port, and a USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 2 port for connecting high-speed USB devices. You can also find one Micro SDXC slot for high-speed card access.
The GPD WIN Max supports eGFX via the Thunderbolt 3 interface, allowing you to connect an external graphics card solution to further improve graphics quality and performance. More details on this will be provided in the future. The USB Type-C port also serves as the charging port. The GPD Win MAX portable laptop comes with a 65W Super Mini GaN Charger measuring just 36x75mm, the world’s smallest 65W power adapter. Three 5000mAh 57Wh rechargeable batteries provide long-lasting battery life on one charge.
In conclusion, the GPD WIN Max is an exceptional handheld gaming PC that offers impressive performance and connectivity options. With its high-quality display, comfortable keyboard layout, and reliable controllers, the WIN Max is perfect for gamers and professionals alike who need a powerful device on-the-go.
