GPD Win Max Handheld Gaming PC Leaks With AMD Ryzen Embedded APU

Earlier this month, we reported that GPD was looking to launch a follow-up to Win 2 handheld gaming PC. Tentatively dubbed the Win 2 Max, the new device was rumored to be powered by an AMD Ryzen APU instead of the previous Intel Kaby Lake-based Core m3-Y730.

Now we've seen evidence that seemingly confirms that the handheld device will feature a Ryzen APU -- more specially, it uses the Ryzen Embedded V1605B. Compared to the Core m3-Y730, we should expect a significant improvement in performance, especially on the graphics front.

The V1605B sits closer to the lower-end of the Ryzen Embedded V1000 family and includes a quad-core, octa-core thread processor with a base clock of 2GHz and a boost clock of 3.6GHz. As for the onboard Radeon Vega GPU, it boasts 8 CUs and supports a maximum of 4 external displays (although we doubt that would be of much concern for the GPD device).

Based on the motherboard images, we can see that the device is also actually called the Win Max, not the Win 2 Max. It includes a combo Intel Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter, a microSD reader, HDMI along with USB-A and USB-C ports for connectivity. There's also an M.2 PCIe slot that will accommodate the system’s SSD.

Given that the Win Max is a self-contained gaming PC, it features a built-in QWERTY keyboard, two thumb sticks, a directional pad, four top-mounted gaming buttons and a gaggle of trigger buttons along its shoulders. There's also a large battery mounted on the motherboard.

As for additional specs, it's been previously rumored that the Win Max will sport a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1280x800, 8GB of RAM and base storage of 128GB. At this point, we still don't have any clues as to how much the Win Max will be priced or its exact launch date.
