The GPD Win range is intended mainly for emulated games, but the new Core M3-7Y30 processor should mean even better performance for much more ambitious games. A new fan which is 8 times better at moving heat and which is completely software controlled should also help, as would the new dual 2 x 4900mAh batteries should mean the device can keep up with the increased demands, promising 6 hours of battery life.
GPD posted some videos of the device running desktop games such as GTA 5, which can be seen below.
