2023 GPD Win Max to feature AMD Phoenix APU with RDNA3 graphics
The cat is out of the bag, GPD might equip their new console with AMD’s latest low-power APU.
Over at Geekbench and Bapco website one can now find benchmark results featuring a product codenamed “GPD G1619-04“. This product name is already used by GPD Win Max 2 gaming console powered by AMD Ryzen 7 6800U APU. The last-gen 15W processor was based on Zen3+ and RDNA2 architecture, giving a significant boost in performance compared to older Ryzen series.
According to new leaks, an updated console might sport an even more powerful APU. The Ryzen 7 7840U is a low-power Phoenix processor with 8 Zen4 cores and up to 12 GPU Compute Units powered by RDNA3 architecture:
The new GPD Win Max would feature 16 GB of LPDDR5X-7500 memory and a 1080p screen. However, no further details are available. Both results were uploaded in a span of two weeks, which means that the product is now actively being tested internally.
The Geekbench benchmark itself was not correctly passed and it is invalid. However, the main point is that new handheld gaming consoles will get Phoenix APU. Thus far, only ASUS has confirmed they will develop a gaming console powered by the most powerful AMD custom chip yet, most likely a variant of Phoenix.
