By Yue Lynn on Feb 2, 2018

We have covered the LighterSaber, and now we are featuring another crowd-fund project that may be up your alley. Lemme introduce you to the GPD WIN 2, a tiny handheld game console that can seemingly run AAA games.

Here are some specs for this gizmo:

~ Intel Core™ m3-7Y30

~ lntel HD Graphics 615

~ 6 inches H-IPS Technology

~ 8GB Memory

~ M.2 SSD 128GB, Replaceable, No Capacity Ceiling

~ 162×99×25mm

~ ABS + Aluminum alloy

~ 2×4900mAh, In Series

~ About 6~8 hours of battery life, it should depend on the actual working conditions

In the Indiegogo page of this curious innovation, the device boasts that it can run Fallout 4, BATTLEFIELD 1, The Witcher 3, League of Legends, Bloodborne, Resident Evil 7 and a boatload of many other games. Well, I don’t know about you but I definitely would love to play Overwatch and GTA V on the go.

Moreover, they have two YouTube channels to prove some game testing:

Channel 1

Channel 2

As you can see in the above screenshot, the project has already been funded waaaaay more than its original goal with the figure zooming past one million USD. This is despite the fact that the lowest reward tier is a whopping 649USD!
