    The AYA NEO is currently the only handheld gaming PC with an AMD architecture on the market but it won't be for long. The newcomer has shaken up GPD, which is something of a veteran in this market, from its slumber to finally come up with an AMD-based gaming device of its own. Previously, it was reported that this device would be using a 5800U processor but the company announced today that their first AMD device will instead be based on the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U APU.

    Named as the GPD Win Max 2021, it will pack the clamshell design of the Win Max line and of the traditional GPD consoles, meaning that it will also feature a full-fledged keyboard in addition to gaming buttons. You can see more details about the specs from the image below, which also indicates that an Intel Core i7 with Iris Xe Graphics variant will also be available:

    As has been the case with previous GPD devices, the company has opted for an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to launch its new device. There are no details about pricing at this time but the campaign is said to be coming "soon" and you can sign up on the page to know when it launches and for the chance of up to 40% discount.

    I hope the GPD pocket gets the same treatment.

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of the layout either. 10/10 I'd go for a landscape model like the AYA NEO or GPD Win 3

    I always see articles about those super amazing GPD PCs to a point that I don't even know what model is more powerful, but sadly locally I only find the old android based one.

    the last time i found one for a reasonable price was the first generation win, the one with an intel atom and 32GB of eMMC, essentially the same as my shitty $150 tablet but marked up 150%

    When an ultra-tiny laptop has better specs than my desktop PC…

    yea the Switch is also something I'd not consider a handheld anymore.
    the normal 3DS was as big as a handheld should be, not more.

    Too big for a handheld. A little bit bigger and it will become a regular laptop.

    Until you've held one, used the controls and felt the weight... well let's just say most people, myself included, who have actually used one, find the controls layout ideal, the weight surprisingly balanced, and it very comfortable to game on for long periods of time.

    Not everyone of course. Just most people.

    the design is truly awkward. at least AYA NEO has a solid design and knows the target market, but this one is confusing. maybe if they tweak the keyboard to make it more mobile-like, so it can be more compact

    Looks like a pricy laptop with tiny screen - and too big to be a real handheld

    For me the test is whether it fits in my pocket and this fails

    >handheld gaming PC

    Why can't they just call it a gaming laptop? That's certainly what it is, isn't it?

    They did make smaller models but it looks like the market is demanding bigger devices, to the point of (in my opinion) pointlessness.

    It's to denote that it runs Windows, it's not about the form factor but about the platform.
