The P2 Max 2022 is intended as a refresh of an existing GPD product: the P2 Max.

The aim of the P2 Max is to provide a middle-ground between GPD’s micro-laptop, the GPD Pocket 2, and more conventional larger laptops.

The P2 Max is noticably larger than the GPD Pocket 2, as it features a much larger display. As well as a more comfortable chiclet-style keyboard (similar to the one on the GPD WIN MAX 2021) and a touchpad that is much more user-friendly.

P2 Max 2022 Specifications

The P2 Max 2022 is a refresh of the GPD P2 Max. A small laptop released in 2019 by GPD.

It came in two configurations – one being a low-end model with an Intel Celeron 3965Y and an 8/256 RAM/SSD configuration, and a higher-end model with an Intel Core M3-8100Y and twice the amount of RAM and storage.

The P2 Max 2022 has been stated to feature the following upgrades:

  • A new processor – The Intel Pentium N6000, released in early 2021.
  • Wi-Fi 6 functionality
  • 16GB of LPDDR4 RAM @ 2933MHz (as opposed to the 8/16GB of LPDDR3 on the previous model)
  • A 1TB M.2 NVMe 22*80 SSD – Which should be upgradable, much like the previous model.

Beyond that, the specifications of the device should be similar to the original P2 Max. Including the 8.9-inch display, and the awkwardly placed camera in the centre of the unit.

The the new processor should provide a slight performance improvement over the old M3-8100Y. While not an increase in terms of raw speed, the higher core count, faster RAM, and enhanced integrated graphics should provide an even smoother experience overall.


That’s all we have in our P2 Max 2022 FAQ for now. How do you feel about the P2 Max? Is it a welcome refresh to a somewhat outdated product, or perhaps should GPD have pooled their resources into making something “new”? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned for further updates!
