I could have taken it, but if the rechargeable battery again gets very hot in games, I definitely won't take it. And for work there is an original WIN.

The keyboard is pleased, it looks much more convenient. If the $ 500 for the price fit - great.

How will the core Core M feel in such a small device? Will the fan be buzzing like a vacuum cleaner? Has anyone done this before? I only saw these prots in large tablets and ultrabooks.

If active cooling is done according to the mind and not according to the residual principle, then everything will be super. Estimated heat dissipation at 7y30 4 with kopecks watts. Maximum in boost 7. Minimum less than 4. That is, in theory, on average, it is twice as hot as the past atom, but it is still a sooooo cold chip. Let's say the tegra x1 on the ceiling is considered to be more than 10w and after all, in a switch it normally works even with low frequencies. 4 was not less hot and the shild portabl was well cooled.

Yes, and in tablets 7y30 it was usually used without active cooling, so the “large size” of the devices themselves is not an indicator of the efficiency of the heat sink.

But the fan will buzz Aki vacuum cleaner) The main thing is that while it does not allow the device to heat up in the boost ... but this is more than realistic if done not through the op)))

Am I alone waiting for a similar device in a gpd q9 or jxd s7800?

Better just like a tablet, but with rails under joy-cons. In nintendo switch, a good cooling system, when heated, blows decently. I think that in the announced case there will be problems with cooling again.

Well so there is the Razer Edge Pro for tablet lovers.
Razer Edge Pro 10.1 ”Touchscreen Gaming Tablet, Intel Core i7 8GB RAM 256GB SSD, Windows 8

GPD WIN is also noteworthy that the device is positioned not only as a game, but also, as it were, a full-fledged UMPC with a built-in keyboard. For complete happiness is not enough, perhaps, the LAN connector and stereo speakers.
I think the cooling will be fixed, the current GPD has certain flaws that everyone knows about (non-ideal keyboard and cooling problems), how would it be for a company to fix the whole thing should be taken for granted. At least personally, I have no doubts in this regard. Well, stereo speakers, of course, I would like to. I secretly hope that the silver panel under the screen, they are.

* Revendor,
where is the tablet and this terrible garbage? I have both gpd and switch. so, it is much more convenient to play switch, the screen is bigger, you can’t put a kanechna in your pocket, and who is carrying gpd in your pocket?
plus the manufacturer does not need to bother with the gamepad, just buy joy-cons separately and hook it up. the keyboard can be pulled down with the heating :) but this of course will never happen.

Guys all welcome) who understands the hardware, the future gpd 2 will have enough strength to run the last Witcher at low settings? What do you think? The main thing that at least 25 FPS gave ... dreams))

Rep: (3)
* TouchTheSky87, Unlikely. On version 1, it was launched through a small resolution, in 3 witchers there seems to be no settings for a very low resolution, at the very minimum (HD) on this process something gives out about 10 fps. Although it may come up with craftsmen :)

And the fact that analogs at the edges did not bother anyone? In my opinion a very unfortunate decision ... although it may still change.

And the fact that analogs at the edges did not bother anyone? In my opinion a very unfortunate decision ... although it may still change.

I was embarrassed, also wrote about it. On the other hand, a similar edge layout is used on the Nintendo 3DS when the second Circle Pad is connected. It seems that no one complained of discomfort (although this can be brought down by emotions and "new impressions"). But there the scheme is more heavy, thought out and streamlined. How convenient it will be on GPD 2, it is difficult to judge. While not very happy attitude to such a decision. They are unlikely to change, the entire wiring of the board and the structural scheme will be redone anew. It may be the opposite, it was done so intentionally and in another way it was impossible to put all the changes into place.

Slag some! Prots fig, vidyuha level gpd win, what's the point to make the device level gpd win now? Need at least 615. What are their controllers? It can be seen that clumsy is not there that joy-cons elegance. The size is larger than the switch, the frames are just awful. I consider it an unsuccessful attempt, you need more powerful hardware and without controllers of your development.

In vain, by the way, many do not understand that the switch form factor is what is needed for games. Try to play skyrim on gpd win and on nintendo switch, the sensations are completely different not in favor of gpd win. And for those who need umpc, it's better to look in the direction of the gpd pocket.

It can also be a removable optional BT keyboard, who needs a piano in games.

It is clear that the frames will be on such a form factor, you can place additional buttons there for options in free space. Why 1080x720 in the low-end, if vidyuha does not pull just, plus everything is small for this size, normally leave 1280 x 720.
SSD is optional removable in the slot, and there is more RAM, thoughtful and normal cooling (and not five minutes before leaving the conveyor and on the knee as in gpd win), if it is a functional and functional device, then the price doesn't care.

Why so googled when vidyuha there 615-I pulls almost everything except for new products for 2-3 years and on a long level.
Already many times they have spoken in such topics should not be expected from the portable level of the hospital. But at 615 vidyushka very much what you can play!
