720p is perfect IMO. Above that is too high. I use 1280x1024.
The comments on that video are more carcinogenic than usual. He really kicked the hornets nest with that "windows is terrible" line. Pretty funny.
How can it be "too high" though? Like, what disadvantage does 1080p has over 720p? (except battery consumption)
Well, your font controls might not go high enough to make your fonts legible at that resolution, or you may be able to see the shortcuts the font designers used when the fonts are dialled that high, even if it is possible.
Well for a small screen, you end up with not everything being big enough to see, and then on top of that it takes more power to display things at a higher resolution.
There COULD be a potential weak issue of the GPD Win 2.
One of my customers has the following result once it fell to the ground:
So yeah... it could be that the LCD Cable easily is damaged if it falls onto the edge.
Could be a coincidence as well, who knows - but it could be a weak spot.
So don't throw your GPD Win 2 to the ground.
Generally solid advice for handling expensive handheld computers, luxury vases, and babies.
Cool, when do plan to release it?
Oh! Can we discuss its keyboard layout! Like, for ages?
Hmm yeah, that kinda makes sense. I'm not a fan of "4K or literally unplayable" ideology either, I never understood all the hype surrounding 4K monitors and such.
Here is an interview with GPD that was posted today. Well worth a read, you will need to google translate it as it's in Japanese.
They talk about how they moved from being an OEM comany to making their own products, how they have 30 staff - 15 devs and 15 in Marketing & sales, development decisions made for the Pocket 2 etc
Use a Pyra instead.
So this thing is pretty cool uh? I haven't really followed this much, as the first one seemed OK, but nothing I needed at the time. What's the highest level of emulation this can run full speed? This retails for what, $700 or so correct? Some of the videos I've seen, this thing looks amazing, but the price while seeming "fair", is just out of my range for something like this. I would for sure look in to it if it ever gets to the $500 range.
