The handset will be offered via crowd-funding on the 15th January 2018 with the device expected to ship in April 2018. The crowdfunding price will be $599 and the regular retail price retail $699 later.

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.
