The world's smallest gaming PC packs a big punch

Owning a portable handheld game console capable of running AAA games such as GTA5, has always been the dream of many gamers.

But even the best handheld consoles on the market like the PSP and PSV struggle to run these games.

Better game console performance normally requires a device that’s sizable enough to have sufficient processing power and is able to withstand long battery use and overheating.

The GPD WIN 2 comes in compact form but supposedly doesn’t compensate for that with the gameplay experience.

GPD WIN 2’s lightweight design and heavyweight hardware processing power allows it to achieve ultimate compactness with minimum heat output and long battery life.

System overview:

  • Intel Core m3-7Y30.
  • lntel HD Graphics 615.
  • 6 inches H-IPS Technology.
  • 8GB Memory.
  • M.2 SSD 128GB.
  • 62×99×25mm.
  • ABS + Aluminum alloy.
  • 2×4900mAh, In Series.
  • About 6~8 hours of battery life, it should depend on the actual working conditions.

Last year, the company successfully launched the GPD WIN, the first 5.5-inch Windows handheld game console in the industry.

The significance of this machine lies in the fact that many games that could only be played in front of a television or a computer in the past.

Now, these games are able to run on a portable handheld device.

However, the first generation GPD WIN had some deficiencies, especially in the area of performance and heat dissipation.

GPD states that they are committed to developing a handheld game console that can run AAA games smoothly.

At the same time, the heat-dissipation, power consumption, device weight, portability, battery life and other factors must also be taken into account.

Thus they have gone through a long product development time to introduce a new generation of their product, The GPD WIN 2.

This tiny PC boasts that it can run games like Grand Theft Auto 5 and The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt.

I would love to get my hands on one of these devices to see just how good it is.
