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 don?t 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 don?t 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?

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)

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

With the Gpd Win

yes, i know this, but on every post about android running on x86 there are some guys that mention this, but i really don?t know which games really can?t run on x86
maybe there are some, but i'm sure the most popular games and apps currently are running without problems on x86 android versions, then i don?t get the point on complain about x86 soc usage. i think, better is asking for these rare cases of apps that cannot run on x86 device, to their programmers to fix them.

really, i can?t see the problem. for now, i can play any game i want to play on x86 versions without issues, and for this reason i'm asking about these games that "cannot run" on x86 platform.

Any possibility of GPD XD2 having tegra k1/X1 SOC or it is not possible as JXD will launch its handheld with NVIDA SOC?

RK3399 would be a nice improvement and let me say Android is good for some emulators but for Mame is a nightmare.
RK3399 + WIN is the way (imho)

this cannot be done...

device must be ARM (RK3399) or intel (for windows)

ein?

what do you mean?

this is not about agreements or not. simply is different architecture. Windows (standard version, not phone/mobile) CANNOT run on ARM devices.

you may confuse with Continuum, that  (as i readed) will include mobile versions to become a "standard" version, but this mean there are need of translator ARM-x86, but this is away to be useful for gaming, but this is another story.

I think the bigger issue is not whether windows 10's common core will run on arm (it does), but more the complete lack of software compiled for arm.  The universal app ecosystem would be the only saving grace, but, there isn't a single emulator for windows 10 built as a universal app that im aware of.  and the game list on the windows 10 store that are universal is pretty near non existant.  Unless you want to buy a gaming handheld with physical controls to play candy crush style mobile titles, this would be a terrible investment.  The only reason to run windows here is to run x86 binaries, so intel/amd+win or arm+android are your only realistic options for a gaming device like this.   While i would love to see a linux handheld, if GPD handles the uefi properly on the GPD win, it will be optional there (android/windows/linux handheld options?  IM IN!)

Thanks for clarification. So at today...X86 is the big deal .

You may be thinking about Windows RT, which is Windows for ARM.  I don't think Microsoft is supporting it any longer, since it was a closed system, didn't sell well, and Intel Atom processors are coming into their own, making it no longer needed.

If the XD2 doesn't run dual boot I guess I'd just go for the GPD Win instead. The bigger screen and extra stick look great however. It'd be a bit of shame because I love this design but couldn't really justify buying when I already have an XD1 if it's android only. It would be nice to know for certain before the Indiegogo campaign ends.
