It is a handheld that can run AAA class games
Owning a portable handheld game console capable of running 3A games such as GTA5 has always been the dream of many gamers, but even the best handheld representative product in the industry like PSV, 3DS, and NS cannot make it. That is because from the perspective of hardware design, the better performance the handheld has, the higher values are required for the device size, power consumption, heat release and weight. However, what a real handheld design pursues is the feature of portability, compactness, small heat productivity and long battery-life.
Last year, GPD successfully launched GPD WIN, the first 5.5-inch PC handheld game console based on the Windows platform in the industry. The significance of this machine lies in the fact that many games that could only be played in front of a television or a computer in the past can, for the first time, run on a portable handheld. However, they understand that the first generation of GPD WIN may have many deficiencies, especially in the aspect of performance and heat dispersion.
They are committed to developing a handheld game console that can run 3A games smoothly in a real sense. At the same time the heat-dissipation, power consumption, device weight, portability, battery-life and other indicators must be taken into account. Thus, they have gone through a product development period of nearly 8 months to introduce you a new generation of their products: GPD WIN2
What is the GPD WIN 2 ?
The appearance is as delicate as artwork
For lightweight design, the machine’s body uses ABS material. The 3D rocker is still of sink-style design. Unique arc metallic film keys, more suitable for blind operation. The design of 360 handle-style ABXY key, still retains double-character screen printing technique. The less commonly used D mode is removed from the handle/mouse switch, simplifying the overall design. The machine body, keyboard and handle are in a highly uniformed color, which bring out the best of the design. With an elegant appearance, matt UV spray provides you with a delicate feel. The machine is as fine as art from color design to material application.
Rich interface, compact layout
At the back of machine, the trigger key L1/L2/L3, R1/R2/R3 are arranged on both sides. At the same time, all the interfaces are designed on the back, in the order of Type C, 3.5mm headphone, USB 3.0, Micro SD card, Micro HDMI and hot air outlet, with quite compact layout, bringing out the best of the design.
SSD storage, fast speed
In order to facilitate players to replace the SSD, the D surface of the WIN 2 is designed with a slot, enabling the SSD be inserted obliquely, with a plug-in cover on the top. The copper nuts are embedded in the sealing, and it is fixed using copper screws, which effectively guarantees that the SSD is connected with the M.2 interface closely even in the extreme drop state.
Max 6 hours duration
In order to extend the battery-life, WIN 2 uses 2×4900mAh large-capacity and high-density polymer lithium battery, with 7.6V voltage output, 37.24 Wh of power and 600Wh/L energy density.
Bigger screen and better gaming experience
Equipped with 6-inch Super-Shine View from Sharp Corporation, with the viewing area increased by 109% compared to the previous generation; Using the In-Cell full lamination technology, the screen is thinner due to the reduction of a piece of glass. By applying the fourth generation of Corning gorilla glass screen, the intact rate of 1-meter drop test is as high as 80%, and the anti-damaged capability is raised by 45% compared to the third generation Boundless protection design with no prominent frame, make you more focused while operating. Narrower black side of the screen, with the upper border of 5mm and the lower border of only 3mm, contributing to a higher screen occupation ratio. The resolution is 1280×720, with its definition 2.53 times as that of the 24-Inch desktop monitor, and the level of viewing angle is up to 178°; At the same time, the touch screen operation is also supported by WIN 2.
