Title: GPD WIN MAX 2
Post by: MOFO on April 07, 2019, 04:28:48 pm
Lets post all relevant news for this new handheld.

What we know so far is its going to use a higher res screen and AMD APU, all other details are either rumors or speculation at this point.

Personally I would like to see this  hardware in a 10 or 11 inch netbook type form factor ( like a GPD Pocket but bigger ).
You would have much more room for cooling and enough space for traditional keyboard layout and touchpad.
The rumored configurable TDP ( up to 35w ) has me thinking how well this form factor could handle cooling the hardware without it sounding like a jet taking off.

Phawx hope you dont mind  me posting your video  here.

7 inch 1080p will be perfect for me...

1080p is useless in terms of performance

It won't be 1080p, and won't be 7 inch.

for me, a HD screen (720) is perfect (1080 is useless), and 7 or 8 inches is ok, if there are minimal bezel.

So what size screen do you guys think it will have?
Love my WIN 2 but the one thing I wish it had was a bigger screen, my eyes get strained after a while and reading text can sometimes be way too small.

If there would be SmachZ out it has 1080p screen, we will see, if AMD SoC powerfull for it or not. But big problem with 1080p is that half resolution 960x540 is not supported of too much games.. and only 3:4 compatible format is 1280x960 and its big space waste.
  If iPad etc could have 4:3 screen, why we can get at least 16:10 with 1920x1200, on it 1600x1200 runs really well, 1080p too.

On twitter they put an other concept image https://twitter.com/softwincn/status/1117634466904596480 , it seems the L3/R3 buttons are here anymore so clickable/analog stick ?
Title: Re: GPD WIN MAX 2
Post by: MOFO on April 15, 2019, 03:28:22 pm
Sure hope there are clickable sticks, the current set up is just a pain to use.
Just wish GPD would release some official info so we can give some feedback to them.

Here's a hope it won't be more than 2 inches longer than Win 2. Otherwise it will become just notebook with inbuilt gaming controls but not a gaming UMPC/handheld console.

But speaking realistically, judging from sketches leaked it will be much bigger, sadly. In this case, I will save my money for Win 3.

So any guesses on performance? Theres not too much info on this SOC ? Double performance of the WIN 2?
I know it depends on the TDP but with 2 fans it should be relatively high, I just hope they are not crazy loud like the WIN 2.

Post by: Nintendo on April 20, 2019, 01:36:55 pm
Doesn't fan noise depend on game performance?
Title: Re: GPD WIN MAX 2
Post by: MOFO on April 20, 2019, 02:08:46 pm
Not necessarily, it depends on temps.
Fan noise is the same for almost every game.

For the perf Phawx say the V1605b is similar to the Ryzen 5 2500U

In this video he change the Tdp 15W, 12W and 25W
00:01 default TDP 15W
00:43 game graphics settings
02:57 cTDP down 12W
05:22 cTDP up 25W

What???
If your asking what device he is testing games on it?s the HP Envy 360. Would be great to know if they are running dual channel RAM for those games because it makes a huge difference.

Is that a switch clone?
Looks like some type of phone with attachments.

Even though I don't like the design. But it is GOOD that GPD actually experiments and take the risks.

Aren't you all bored with the same looking phone since 2007? I know I do.

It may not be phone, but still, they are experimenting with new ideas. Props to GPD.

   Has HP Envy 360 some fan, or its fanless? How good is its cooling in comparision with GPD Win2? If im not wrong SmachZ would be fanless in comparsion with Switch which has fan..
 
  To design, it would be nice to have both option, typical Win option with keyboard and side gamepads.. for transport it would be nice if it would be possible remove side gamepads.

Its a full sized 13/15 inch laptop with fans.
The GPD WIN2 has great cooling?

Personally I quite like this design specialize removable battery, consider the new device has larger screen and keyboard I think move controller to the side of device make more sense than keep it over keyboard like previous vesion and since controller is no longer place on top of mainboard also means less heat to my hands. I didn't care if it end up look similar to nintendo switch as long as it make sense not rip off for sake of rip off. (but I don't think Switch with clamshell is rip off....)

Just to make it clear those pictures above are not the GPD WIN MAX 2 but a completely different device.

  GPD WIn2 has one small fan, its thermal performance would be very bad, or it would be noisy, or it has to be notch quality.. and now that GPD is not big in build quality. I dunno i dimmensions of fan are some standard ones, if yes it could be replaced for something better.
