GPD WIN Mini Handheld Comes with Ultra-light 7-inch 120Hz Gaming Screen Clamshell
In 2018, GPD revolutionized the gaming world with the launch of the GPD WIN 2, a Windows-based handheld gaming device that combined the convenience of a pocket-sized form factor with the functionality of a full-featured keyboard and gamepad. The response from gamers was overwhelming, with many expressing their desire for a continuation of the compact clamshell design. Responding to their loyal fanbase, GPD is proud to announce the arrival of the GPD WIN Mini, a stunning remake of the classic WIN 2, now with a 6-fold increase in performance and a range of exciting new features that will elevate the gaming experience to new heights.
The GPD WIN Mini sets a new standard for pocket handhelds with its impressive weight of only 520g. Designed in the classic clamshell form factor, it measures a mere 168×109×26 mm, easily fitting into any pocket or bag. Whether you're on your daily commute, traveling, or simply lounging at home, the GPD WIN Mini ensures you never have to compromise on gaming experiences due to portability.
Revolutionary 120Hz LTPS Screen
One of the most notable upgrades in the GPD WIN Mini is its 7-inch 120Hz LTPS (Low-Temperature Poly-Silicon) gaming screen. The world's first high-refresh gaming screen in a clamshell handheld, it delivers an ultra-smooth and responsive visual experience. However, recognizing that personal preferences vary, GPD has given users the option to manually reduce the refresh rate to 60Hz. The screen's quality is top-notch, boasting an ergonomic grip and featuring Corning Gorilla Glass with AF+AR anti-reflection coating, providing 98.5% light transmittance and 500nit brightness, resulting in crisp 1080P resolution visuals with 368 pixels per inch (PPI) and DC dimming without flickering.
At the heart of the GPD WIN Mini lies the power of the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U or Ryzen 5 7640U processor, paired with the AMD Radeon 780M or 760M core display. With a thermal design power (TDP) ranging from 15W to 30W, the floating-point performance of the AMD APU surpasses that of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. With such prowess, players can revel in the seamless and lag-free performance of even the most demanding games.
Ample Memory and Storage
Recognizing the importance of memory and storage for gamers, the GPD WIN Mini offers LPDDR5-6400 MT/s memory options ranging from 16GB to 32GB. Say goodbye to worries about running out of memory while playing your favorite titles. Additionally, the PCIe Gen4 M.2 NVMe 2230 SSD provides ample storage space, ranging from 512GB to a generous 2TB, ensuring you can carry your entire gaming library with you wherever you go.
Enhanced Control and Sensitivity
GPD has listened to its users and made significant improvements to the Hall joystick. Addressing concerns about the center point dead zone, the Hall joystick in the GPD WIN Mini now boasts enhanced reset accuracy and voltage division accuracy, resulting in 37.5% and 25% improvements, respectively. This translates to more accurate finger movement detection, leading to enhanced control accuracy and sensitivity in games.
Furthermore, the L2 and R2 buttons have been transformed into linear analog trigger keys, offering the ability to simulate different button responses based on varying pressure levels. This improvement allows for more precise and realistic in-game actions such as shooting and acceleration.
Immersive Audio Experience
The GPD WIN Mini is not only a visual powerhouse but also a feast for the ears. Equipped with two built-in German AAC top-level stereo super-linear dual speakers, it supports DTS: X Ultra sound effects. The innovative DTS:X Ultra algorithm, based on psychoacoustics and HRTF technology, delivers an immersive 7.1-channel sound experience for headphones and built-in speakers alike. Through the 10-band graphic equalizer, users can fine-tune the audio spectrum to optimize the gaming audio for their preferences.
Enhanced Connectivity and Expandability
GPD has packed the GPD WIN Mini with a host of connectivity options. The addition of the USB4 interface, boasting a 40Gbps bandwidth and native Thunderbolt 3 support, allows for seamless connections to GPD G1 or third-party graphics card docks, enabling you to play AAA masterpieces with ease. Additionally, the Oculink (SFF-8612) female port with 63Gbps bandwidth allows for further expansion and connectivity with GPD G1.
Comfortable Ergonomic Grip
To provide an even more comfortable gaming experience, GPD has designed an optional grip accessory for the WIN Mini, drawing inspiration from the ergonomic design of the DualSense handle. This detachable grip fits seamlessly into the hand, allowing for better handling and control during extended gaming sessions. The additional support from the grip enables players to focus on the game itself, further enhancing the overall gaming experience.
In conclusion, the GPD WIN Mini is a masterclass in handheld gaming technology. Its compact form, powerful performance, stunning visuals, and immersive audio combine to create an unrivaled gaming experience on the go. With the GPD WIN Mini, the clamshell handheld legacy continues to evolve and cater to the needs of passionate gamers worldwide. So, whether you're a casual gamer or a hardcore enthusiast, the GPD WIN Mini is the ultimate pocket handheld that's worth every penny.
