Video blogger Carey Golomb has tested two versions of GPD’s Win Max 2 handheld game console. This mini laptop comes with Intel Alder Lake Core i5-1260P or AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processors. In both cases, integrated graphics are used. And, as it turned out, the “red” processor is in the lead.
According to the source, the AMD Ryzen 7 6800U APU turned out to be much more powerful in gaming tasks due to RDNA2 graphics with 12 compute units than the Core i5-1260P. The Intel chip has a full-fledged Xe-LP graphics subsystem with 96 compute units, but its architecture is not as efficient as that of Ryzen 7. In some cases, RDNA2 graphics are twice as good as Xe-LP.
The new laptops are equipped with 10-inch touch screens, buttons and analog sticks, full keyboards, as well as a large amount of RAM and permanent memory.
Win Max 2 expected will come out in five configuration options. Prices look like this:
- Ryzen 7 6800U / 16 GB / 128 GB – 899 (limited supply);
- Ryzen 7 6800U / 16 GB / 1 TB – 999 (1159);
- Ryzen 7 6800U / 32GB / 1TB – 1199 (1359);
- Ryzen 7 6800U / 32GB / 2TB – 1299 (1459);
- Core i5-1260P / 16 GB / 1 TB – 999 (1159).
