Hope the new Gpd xd2 can play dolphin emulator and maybe ps2 that would be cool but when the new Gpd xd2 comes out I will give my son the first Gpd xd (red 64gb) so he can play some great classics too.

I won't buy it if it's z8550, not only is the GPU much weaker then even what is used in rk3288 let alone 3399, but also a TON of android games/apps are not compiled for x86! That would be trash ...

which games are not compatibles? (i'm curious)

Well from what I read in other Baidu threads, what is named the GPD XD2 started off being called the GPD MAX. The idea was meant to be a larger version of the XD.  ie like the 3DS XL is just a larger version of the 3DS. They did say initially that it would maintain the RK3288

No one liked the GPD MAX name , so they changed it to XD2 with consideration for a SOC upgrade.   So their thinking started of as a XL version of the XD, but now it's more  towards a real XD2 .   We will have to see

Anyway, I also agree on the RK3299, seems it would be a good choice.

as i understand, MAX series is the large version of their current normal devices, starting with GPD-XD
These versions will keep the same SoC than their original, but with large display (7~8 inches)
is something like what GPD is doing last time, but now with a proper line of products:

GPD-G5A -> GPD-G7
GPD-G58 -> GPD Q series
GPD-XD -> GPD-XD MAX (this case will keep the RK3288 2GB RAM, and the only change will be the screen size)

maybe i missunderstand some points, but as i understand this is what GPD want to do.

No, there was a thread were they said they would give up the MAX name and call it the XD2 .   At close to the same time , they said they would use a 6" screen rather than 7" as initially pplanned.  The XD2 is the rename of the MAX.  The MAX doesn't exist anymore.

Obviously as they got a lot of user input on their forums, things are probably fluid at the moment so many people wanted more than the RK3288 again, that their plans changed to more a true XD2 rather than an XL version of the XD. So yes, they will use a new SOC, hopefully the RK3299 (IMO). But that's the history

This is what they said at the time:

"Since many people oppose the XD Max, the program will be changed to XD2, upgrade the master chip"

ok.
(is so difficult to search anything on baidu forums...)
i remember read something about MAX and Q series, someone do the same relationship that i mentioned, and i figured was a good move from GPD.

now i read on other place (sorry, i donīt know how to mention where is. was some on baidu .. "thing") that most probably GPD-XD2 and GPD-Win would share firmwares, and based on this i can figure they (GPD) are thinking on adopt cherrytrail for their GPD-XD2.
One of the reasons they commented is because on windows now you can play with dolphin, and android cannot do this (referencing to the new versions of dolphin that allow to play without problems GC games)

i donīt know. is so heavy to understand what people say on chinese forums, because translator is so weird with many words. (and more, if i must translate from chinese to english, and from english to spanish for understand something) :S

hope you get better luck than me reading on baidu. ^_^

Yeah, Google translate is not good for me either.   A lot of times it comes out junk.

Hopefully one day it gets a lot better.

What I want from the GPDXD2 is a bigger screen, bluetooth and 5Ghz wifi.

Seriously, just bluetooth would be awsome, I still cant believe they didnt include it.

sad news (almost, for me)

i think using the same processor the device will be more polivalent, with a very good performance in both andtoid and windows.

Do you mean doesn't share with XD1, or doesn't share with WIN?

It varies, depending on how GPD does it. Intel has a library for running Android ARM apps on Intel x86 chips. Intel did an astounding job of this and most ARM code runs at native speed on x86. Because of this, if it's used in x86 devices, compatibility is very high, but not quite perfect as there are still issues with it. Overall, having x86 is more than worth it.

I must admit I'm more excited to see the RK3399 in the XD2 than the Z8550.   It should at least have a better graphics GPU with it's mali t860
