Crowdfunding for the portable external eGPU “GPD G1” will start soon at GPD.
The other day, although it was presented as an option in crowdfunding ↓ GPD WIN Max 2 2023, the “GPD G1” project will start alone.
From GPD, the world’s smallest eGPU “GPD G1” appeared. AMD Radeon RX with 6nm RDNA3 with OcuLink connectivity …
Equipped with the Radeon RX 7600 XT, it calls for compactness as described below.
Being GPD, it is designed to connect to gaming laptops such as GPD WIN 4 and GPD WIN Max 2. It is a peripheral device that provides mobile gaming class GPU performance for these small devices that end up with integrated GPUs.
Connect via USB 4.0, Thunderbolt at up to 40Gbps, or Oculink at up to 63Gbps.
Pricing hasn’t been announced yet (it’s expected to be around $700, so it’s likely under 100,000 yen), but the specs are clear.
32 RDNA 3 units, 1.5GHz base/2.3GHz game clock/2.615GHz boost clock, 8GB GDDR6 memory, 32MB AMD Infinity cache, 42.84TFlops in FP16 (half), 21.42TFlops in FP32 (floating), FP64 ( double) 669.4 g-flops.
TGP 75-120w with built-in fan. The power supply is a 240W GaN power supply. It is also possible to supply up to 60 watts of power to the connected computer.
Size 225 x 111 x 29.8 mm as shown below, nominal weight 0.92 kg and 1 kg cut.
Ports are Oculink (SFF-8612), USB4.0 Type-C, USB3.2 Type-A x3, SD Card Slot, HDMI2.1 x1, DP1.4a x2 as shown below.
Connect to the main unit as shown below and use it to perform tasks and games that require more GPU power. The GPU has a video output port, so connect the cable from this unit to the monitor.
Oculink and USB 4.0 use different PCIe channels, so you can get the best performance with a simultaneous connection.
This could be a compactness disadvantage, but the GPU can’t be modified like other eGPUs.
The sense of scale with GPD WIN 4 is as follows.
If you line up with GPD WIN Max 2, it will look like ↓.
An eGPU can be carried at just 1kg. Gaming laptop users should check this out.
