Intel 12th Gen Core i7-1260P Processor (Optional) With Intel Iris Xe Graphics
The Intel version of WIN Max 2 comes with the latest 12th gen Core i7-1260P processor featuring 10nm process technology, 18MB L3 cache, 4 Performance cores (8 threads) and 8 Efficient cores (totaling 16 threads), a maximum turbo frequency of 4.7GHz. The Intel Iris Xe Graphics has 96EU, 768 shader processors.
Highly Efficient Intelligent Cooling Solution With A Large Turbo Fan And Dual Heat Pipe Design
WIN Max 2 comes with an improved PC-grade cooling system with a large turbo fan + dual heat pipes, which boasts high volume side air blow and highly intelligent speed control. When the internal temperature is lower than 40°C, the fan speed will not exceed 20% of its maximum capacity. When the internal temperature reaches higher than 40°C, the fan speed goes up in 2% PWM increments until reaching its maximum threshold (100%).
Hall Sensor Sticks (First Time In Our Devices), Stepless, Great Linearity, No Dead Zone Neither Stick Drift
The traditional potentiometer stick that relies on the resistance brush to generate the voltage signal is prone to “drift” issues caused by wear and tear in long-term use. With WIN Max 2, we’ve introduced for the first time Hall Sensor sticks with built-in inductance coils. The working principle of magnetic induction (different magnetic fluxes are generated when the stick rotates to different positions, which in turn generates different voltage signals) determines that Hall Sensor sticks have no wear and tear, and therefore won’t have the issue of stick drift! The sticks also adopt a stepless design for achieving 360° super-linear signal output without any dead zone.
Built-in Magnetic Controller Cover To Switch Instantaneously Between A Gaming Handheld And A Business Laptop Modes At Any Moment
The game controller built into the handheld gaming PC can make it unsuitable for the workplace! To solve this problem, we added two stick covers for WIN Max 2. The magnetic design ensures that the two covers won’t fall off when using the device. When playing games, you can also stow the covers in the rear compartment, which helps prevent accidental loss!
eGPU support (AMD via USB 4, Intel via TB4)
AMD users, behold! The AMD version of WIN Max 2 has a USB4 port supporting up to 40Gbps transfer rate. The USB4 interface natively supports the Thunderbolt 3 protocol, so now you can play games with the AMD version of WIN Max 2 connected to a Thunderbolt 3 eGPU!
The Intel version of WIN Max 2 has a built-in Thunderbolt 4 port which can be used to connect to a more efficient Thunderbolt 4 eGPU!
Comes With One Large Capacity M.2 2280 SSD And One M.2 2230 Slot For Easy Capacity Expansion
For the unlimited expansion of storage space, in addition to an M.2 2280 slot already occupied by the machine’s own nvme ssd, there is also an M.2 2230 slot on the back of the Max 2’s motherboard. Both slots are based on the PCIe 4.0 × 4 bus, with a theoretical throughput of up to 7.877GB/s. Due to restraints in terms of body thickness, both M.2 slots only support single-sided SSDs. The machine comes with a PCIe 3.0 SSD. If you want faster read and write speeds, you can replace it with a PCIe 4.0 SSD.
Optional 4G LTE Module With Full Operator Support For Gaming Anytime, Anywhere
After the launch of the first-generation GPD WIN handheld, some users suggested we should add a 4G LTE module to the follow-up products, so that they can play online games anytime, anywhere. However, due to various constraints (internal space, heat generation, cost, etc.), we had been unable to add this feature in the past. This time, we finally did it, adding a 4G LTE module that supports 4G TD-LTE, FDD-LTE and 3G CDMA in WIN Max 2, which is comparable in performance to mainstream laptops and can be used in more complex scenarios.
Considering that some users may not need 4G capabilities, we have adopted a detachable module design, allowing anyone who needs a 4G connection to put the module into the slot on the back of the machine. The operation is very easy, just remove the cover and slot in the module and you are done！
High-speed SD And MicroSD Slots Added For Photographers/Players
GPD users include photography enthusiasts who need to transfer a large number of photos to their notebooks. For them, one disadvantage of the small, portable GPD handheld compared to larger notebooks is the lack of a built-in SD card slot. And we’ve finally made up for this shortcoming with WIN Max 2!
The SD slot of WIN Max 2 is connected to the UHS-II bus. Based on the SD 4.0 bus protocol, it supports the transmission of up to V90 video files at a read and write speed of up to 312MB/s and inserting an up to 2TB SDHC/SDXC/SDUC card.
WIN Max 2 is also equipped with a microSD card slot that is connected to the UHS-I bus, supports the transfer of A2, U3, V30 files at a read and write speed of 160MB/s, to a microSDHC / microSDXC / microSDUC card.
Backlit Keyboard With 2-level Brightness Adjustment And Precision Touchpad With Gesture Customization Support, All For Higher Input Comfort
To improve the typing experience, we’ve added a backlit keyboard that has 2 brightness levels to Max 2, allowing you to always see legends comfortably regardless of the ambient brightness. In addition, to address concerns about touch accuracy and improve touch input comfort, we’ve also added the Precision Touchpad driver for Max 2, which supports touch gesture customization with the Touchpad configuration tool that comes with Windows.
Thanks to our friend Faust for his valuable advices and time for the keyboard design of this product.
First Of Our Device To Introduce Side Mounted Power Button With A Fingerprint Sensor
The power button of a traditional laptop would mostly be on its C side. So, when using the laptop with an external monitor, it will be locked every time you close the laptop and leave, to use it again you must open the top cover and enter the password, which can be very troublesome. To solve this problem, WIN Max 2 is equipped with a side mounted power button with a fingerprint sensor, which allows for a very convenient one-click power on + unlock (regardless of whether the machine is closed or not)!
Built-in 4-channel Intelligent Amplifier And 4 Super Linear Surround Sound Speakers
Thanks to its 2 AAC Super Linear Speakers with Double Amplitude Boost, WIN 3’s sound performance is very well received by users! This time, WIN Max 2 is further upgraded with 4 super-linear speakers to achieve surround sound. And it also uses a high PSRR intelligent 4-channel amplifier with higher energy efficiency and lower noise. Whether watching videos or playing games, Max 2 can always bring you immersive and cinematic 3D surround sound!
Built-in 2 Million Pixel Camera With Ultra-wide Viewing Angle And High Refresh Rate
WIN Max 2 has a built-in 2-megapixel camera with a maximum resolution of 1612×1212. It boasts an ultra-wide viewing angle and a high refresh rate for a better live video conferencing experience.
67Wh High Capacity Battery, Supporting Up To 5 Hours Of Continuous Gaming
