    The AMD APU will be under/over-clockable. Screen and keyboard will be improved too.

    Some images of the AMD APU in the GPD Win (2) Max have emerged.

    The only thing that would worry me is the higher wattage of the AMD compared to Intel perhaps causing overheating or at least being hotter. AMD is better for desktops IMO (depending on workload obviously) and Intel is better for mobile (laptop etc) purely because of its efficiency

    EDIT: just remembered that it's an APU so the trade-off will almost definitely be worth it as the graphics performance should be a lot better.

    It will be interesting to see the battery life when this device becomes available.
