The 8100Y update was a forced update. Supply of the 7Y30 has dried up and they cant get it anymore.Seems to big to be pocketable. this seems like more of a Win 3 device
Why do the refresh with the 8100Y, then this Max, then the Win 3?
I feel like they are bleeding the customers for cash with new devices every 6 to 8 months in the same product line. Customers will not bite on this knowing there is a new and better product in less than 6 months.
Now I wish I would have waited as I just got my GPD Win 2 in December
I am not so sure about that. The new Intel Ice lake Y and U series chips are coming this year which are built off of the Sunny Cove 10nm architecture.
Those Y chips would be great in the Win 3 and run cooler. Looks like the lowest power ones are 7, then 15 and 28 TDP.
