New Release: GPD WIN Mini 2024 Features Ryzen 7 8840U and 7" 120 Hz VRR Display

GPD has launched the GPD WIN Mini (2024 edition), a miniature gaming laptop boasting significant upgrades from its predecessor, including a Ryzen 7 8840U processor and a 7-inch, 120 Hz VRR display. This device merges the portability of a handheld gaming PC with the functionality of a laptop, featuring a QWERTY keyboard, touchpad, and built-in game controllers. Available for pre-order through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign starting at $879, the GPD WIN Mini (2024) introduces several noteworthy changes.

Key upgrades include a shift to to a Ryzen 7 8840U CPU, enhanced 7-inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display supporting variable refresh rates and AMD FreeSync, removal of a DisplayPort-to-MIPI chip to reduce power consumption, and removal of the OCuLink port affecting external graphics dock connectivity which is now limited to USB4 Type-C connections.

The introduction of the GPD WIN Mini (2024) follows swiftly after its predecessor, motivated by the recent availability of 7 inch, 1080p native landscape displays with support for variable refresh rates.
