Tested Shenmue 2 and TimeStalkers in Demul .07 on 7Y30 and they seem to run perfectly so far at 720p.

If you don't mind I'd request a test for Xenoblade(Dolphin) & FFXII(PCSX2). Thanks ^_^

God of War I and II (PS2)
Mortal Kombat 2009 (PC)
Wolfenstein (2009)
Wolfenstein: The New Order

Burnout paradise, crysis 1, and wolfenstein 2009 work fine on the win1 already so they will surely work nice on the win2 =)

Well, Crysis still drops below 30, and I think it's the same with Wolf2009.

Yeah Wolfenstein you have to use close to Lowest Settings in order to make sure it does not heat up too much

Speaking from experience (my ultrabook has a 6y30. same chip -10% or so), performance on these chips can be massively effected by thermals. These chips have a low enough TDP, they have option to be passively cooled. Like the Telecast, my Ultrabook doesn't have a fan. In this case Asus really cranked down the clock curve once it starts warming up. Usually sticks around 1.6 ghz when playing games (not sure what the GPU clocks look like), I throw it on a laptop cooling pad, and it ramps to the full 2.2ghz.

Which is a rather massive difference. (again idk about GPU speeds) I know the GPD win 2, won't be a thermal monster, but it will have a fan. It wouldn't surprise me the WIN would offer better performance then the Telecast. In terms of CPU performance, maybe not the the graphics side. Still should be good for emulation in that way

Hey, somebody knows when is the release day? Or there is no data yet.

I have some money and I don't know where to waste. I am between Switch, GPD XD 2 or GPD Win 2. How many time I'll wait, if I want to wait for one GPD? Is there another interesting project close to be released? Is still not serious the PGS project?

Too many questions, sorry xD

I've received my 6" 1440p screen that I've purchased for doing some VR experiments on PC. It comes with a small board with Micro-USB IN for charging and HDMI IN. It's a really good SHARP CG-Silicon screen with a perfect image quality.

I've tried this setup with my GPD Win for fun, and it does work quite well! I've set the scaling in Windows 10 to 200%, so it looks like a 720p retina display - exactly the same layout as the Win's display, but with ultra sharp details, and on a 6" screen, the image is bigger and is perfectly readable / usable - way better than on 5.5".

Tested a bit of retro games in RetroArch: Scaling + CRT shader looks perfect!

There are a few issues for those of you that could be interested to get this:
- The multi-screens setup need to be set to extended, as the Win's screen needs to be on for the gamepad to still work - so I'm basically doing multi-monitoring on a handheld 8)
- The board I have only support 50hz.
- It's an ugly setup - though it could be fixed with short cables and a 3D printed case.
- It will probably drain the battery fast, not tested enough to tell.

Though, this allowed me to re-think about the best resolution for the Win 2. I previously thought that 720p would be perfect, now I think that 1440p (which is 4 times 720p) would be even better. Of course you could still run demanding games in 720p and they will still look great - just like PSP games on the Vita (the Vita is 4x the PSP in resolution).

TL;DR

@wade : For the Win 2, please consider a 6" screen with a resolution of either 720p or 1440p.

For those interested in this setup, here's from where I got it, the whole package is around 100 euros:
