GPD XD2
« on: March 07, 2016, 12:16:08 pm »
Thought I'd start a thread on the GPD XD2 since GPD have now started posting some renders of it.  It's still early days, and these renders are non final yet.


Anyway from this thread that Kit (from GPD) started , here are some early renders.  The current plan is for it to have a 6" screen that rotates back 360 degrees to fold flat on the bottom, so it can be used as a small tablet

When more details come in over time, I'll update this post (unless GPD start a new thread)

It sounds great. If the GPD Win ends up being too expensive or has some serious flaws I could definitely see myself getting this as my next portable machine.

The reversible screen is a great idea so you can play vertical aligned android games in comfort.

They tried to hide it, but you can clearly see the third stick in the top image - bottom right of the game pad.
You can see part of the border of the stick, and in the screen reflection, you can see the stick.

I wonder if they are still going to do it. ie more than two sticks.

When this comes out I'm getting it and giving my son the gpd xd 64 red the one I got now. I hope the gpd xd2 has at least 2.5ghz cpu and it can play dolphin emulator.

@Deenox 

Yes, the Dpad does look bigger.

How do you feel about the possibility of the XD2 having three joysticks as the renders hint?
(See my previous comment)

first of all, for clearifing my position:
KENDY: I WANT THIS WITH DUALOS. IF THIS CAN RUN ANDROID AND WINDOWS, I WILL BE THE FIRST ON SUPPORTING THIS

XD

now, about 3rd joystick... i donīt see how to use.

i feel that 3x2 button may be useful, and this device can have a good touchpad for improving (nothing of keyboard, please)

a touchpad may be used as joystick for MOBA games, for potions, magic, etc (this is the reason why GPD want to add more sticks)
My advice is to adding Z, C buttons, and a Optical Thumb Mouse or simple Touchpad for improving the experience of MOBA gamers.

Any ideas what chip this will be powered by? The new Rockchip processor (RK3368) uses a slower CPU than the chip in the XD1.

there are few comments pointing that is x86 (most probably, the same as GPD-Win)

If they use a Rockchip they will keep 3288 or most probably the new 3399 with mali 880. I wouldn't discard they use the same z8550 x86 because they perform well in android too.

Agreed. The 3368 is slower because it's lower-budget, like the 3066 was to the 3188.

Looks as if everything that is in the pipeline (the GPD win and the XD2) will use those horrid face buttons.

I love the analogs, the dpad, and the shoulder buttons, but I reallllyyyy hope that the buttons will be a lot less mushy and more firm like the latest XD have. I can live with it for most games now, but it's still annoying. Especially the X/square button  moves around a bit in the casing (quite a lot, but only when I have my thumb on it, not by itself or anything) and feels so soft. It whobbles under my thumb noticably when it's not pressed in... Also whenever I push it I hear these squishy sounds - none of the others do that at all almost. It works fine tough, it just annnoooyyssss meeee.. It's the only thing that si better on the new 3ds xl, the ABXY buttons (with that thing, the horrid click-clack noise and feeling of the dpad would drive me insane if I bought one too. And the 3ds's shoulder buttons and analogs are shit).


But they probably have fixed that anyway. It's the only thing that really needed improvement on the XD IMHO

Then there is price. I just dropped all hope of getting a WIN due to the moneys, but with this foldable screen and all that, it's great off course, but I am really afraid it will cost 200 dollars or more, but I will probably only buy one if the base modelis 150 or less like the 16 GB XD -1 (I paid 127).

If this turn out to expensive, I will probably (somewhere around october after this is out) just get a second XD for 150 for the better-feeling non-squishy-sounds buttons and be done with it...

The 3368 is also exclusive for tvboxes, there is no tablet version of it, so that cannot use that. My guess is the RK3399 or the z8550 if they buy too much product to intel.

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 ...
