GPD WIN Max 2-The new model of small gaming PC is equipped with Alder Lake-P and will be enlarged to 10.1 inch size!

GPD announced that it is developing a gaming PC, “GPD WIN Max 2”. “GPD is UMPC, gaming UMPC,” but WIN Max 2 has a display size of 10.1 inches, so it is hard to say that it is a UMPC anymore. However, whether you call it a UMPC or not, there is no doubt that it is a compact size pr oduct that can carry PC games.

Alder Lake-P installed
Currently, the 12th generation (Alder Lake) Core i7-1280P (14 cores, 20 threads) is installed. I haven’t tested it in Wintab yet, but Passmark has released a benchmark score of Core i7-1270P (12 cores, 16 threads), which is a whopping 22,842 (although the number of samples is only 1, so the data Is unreliable). By the way, the score of the 11th generation (Tiger Lake-H45) Core i7-11800H installed in the high-spec gaming notebook is 21,478, so it is a performance of “good game.” After this, as the number of samples increases, it seems that the score will settle down (decrease) a little more, but at the moment, it can be said that it can be “suitable for gaming PCs.”
RAM is set to 16GB / 32GB, and storage is set to 1TB / 2TB. Regarding storage, it has a configuration of M.2 2280 PCIe Gen 4 slots x 2, and according to GPD, it can be installed up to 16TB (8TB + 8TB). … I think the cost of 16TB is higher than the main unit price of this product …
The display will be 10.1 inches (1,920 x 1,200), larger than the 8 inches (1,280 x 800) of the conventional model GPD WIN Max. Also, the release stated that “up to 2,560 x 1,600 resolution is supported”, but the original text is in Chinese, and even if translated, “a display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 will be set” or “external display connection.” I didn’t know if it was possible to display 2,560 x 1,600. “
Also, there was no mention of touch support. However, I think it probably supports touch.

It was clearly stated that it supports 4G LTE around communication. There was no mention of Wi-Fi, but it probably supports Wi-Fi 6.
It’s bigger than the GPD WIN Max (well, of course).
WIN Max: 207 x 145 x 26 mm / 790 g
WIN Max 2: 228 x 160 mm (thickness unknown) / weight unknown

The thickness is “thinner than WIN Max.”
So, regarding the housing, only one top image is disclosed. Even if it is the entire image, it is a level that “I do not understand at all with this.”

This image is GPD WIN Max.

There was an explanation that the keyboard layout is inherited from WIN Max, so it seems it has a unique design with a game controller at the top. Also, as the size increases a little, you may be able to afford the critical pitch.
There were some incomplete explanations about the port configuration. The answer is “Dual interface of Thunderbolt 4 and USB Type-C” and “Three USB 3.2 Gen 2”. However, the specific number of ports cannot be known. Therefore, there is a possibility that the spec table described above is incorrect. Please note that.
2. GPD WIN Max 2 price etc.
The price and release date of GPD WIN Max 2 are not yet known. The current model GPD WIN Max has a price of 139,800 yen including tax for “Core i7-1195G7 or Ryzen 7 4800U / 16GB / 1TB”, so it seems to be a little higher than that.

Since it is a GPD product, I think there is no doubt about the gaming quality (controller, cooling performance, etc.), and it is expected that the larger size will improve the usability of a business notebook.
