GPD Win Max 2 - benchmarks and accessories
GPD Win Max 2 is a 10,1" laptop and gaming handheld. The 2023 refresh is powered by either Ryzen 7 7840U or Ryzen 5 7640U equipped with Radeon 780M/760M integrated graphics respectively.
The device comes with up to 64GB of LPDDR5x RAM working at up to 7500MT/s speeds which is the maximum supported by the SoC. Additionally, two M.2 PCIe 4.0 SSDs are supported - one standard size 2280 and one short 2230. Note that officially only single-sided SSDs are supported (dual side will have problems fitting in but some users do use them with some adaptations).
On top of that we get one USB4 port which is similar in feature set to Thunderbolt 3 and allows connecting PCIe devices via a dock, including graphics cards. eGPU users will likely use an SFF-8612 OCuLink port which is PCIe 4.0 x4 and thus faster than Thunderbolt 3/USB4 (63 Gbps vs 40 Gbps).
We also get 2560×1600 400 nit touch display, slot for a cellular modem, backlight keyboard, gaming controller triggers, and a few other things making it an unusual cross between a laptop and a gaming handheld/controller.
You can buy GPD devices from a few local resellers or GPD themselves via sites like Aliexpress. New devices are often launched through Indiegogo.
