Lately, there’s been a bit more buzz about mobile gaming consoles, mainly due to the announcement of the ASUS ROG Ally, which will use an unspecified AMD Ryzen APU based on the Zen 4 microarchitecture with the option to connect an eGPU dock. GPD is one of the most well-known companies that produce small devices, which are a combination of a handheld console and a laptop. According to entries in the benchmarks from GeekBench and BAPCo, a new version of the device known as GPD Win Max will soon appear, this time with a more powerful processor.
GPD Win Max will see a new version with AMD Ryzen 7 7840U processor, integrated Radeon 780M graphics and 16GB LPDDR5X RAM.
AYANEO NEXT II will receive an all-new edition with “next generation” AMD Ryzen 7000 processors and discrete graphics
In the database of the GeekBench and BAPCo programs, there are entries for the GPD device with the designation GPD G1619-04, which is a reference to the GPD Win Max model, which, among other things, includes a 10-inch display. According to both programs, the mini “laptop console” will be equipped with an eight-core, 16-thread AMD Ryzen 7 7840U processor, which uses the Zen 4 microarchitecture. The fact that low-voltage Phoenix APU has appeared again proves that it should be officially introduced soon. Along with the 8 Zen 4 cores, the GPD Win Max will also receive an integrated Radeon 780M graphics chip.
ASUS ROG Ally is not an April Fool’s Day joke – the company is preparing a portable console with the option to connect, for example, a GeForce RTX 4090
The previous version of GPD Win Max 2 for example offers an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor with Radeon 680M graphics. Here, therefore, we will get higher performance, especially since the laptop will also be equipped with 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM with an effective operating frequency of 7500 MHz. Additionally, the entry in BAPCo confirms that the new GPD Win Max will get a screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Unfortunately, at the moment we do not know when the equipment will hit the market, but with the right price it could become a very interesting alternative to the Steam Deck or solutions from for example AYANEO.
