brilliant device. kids love it. quality build and screen
First buying the GPD G1 from droidx has been great. There chat is very responsive and answered my questions etc.. The GPU arrived the next day as per the speedy delivery option and was well packaged etc..
The GPD G1 is excellent:
Computer - I pair the G1 with my Asus Zenbook Flip, it has a 12500H CPU and Thunderbolt 4 ports. I don't have anything with Oculink to test it with.
Performance - my tests put it just behind a desktop RTX 3070 (that I ran in a razor core x egpu box)
Gaming - I can play AAA games between 30 and 60 fps (like Starfield, Hogwarts, Cyberpunk) and older games are no issue
Noise - it can be heard but i would say it is the sound of the air moving rather than a whiny fan, so not that bad when at full speed
Size - this is where it wins as I can put it in my bag with my laptop, and it does not need a separate PSU! It also power the Laptop. (I cant carry a desktop GPU and eGPU box around like this)
Installation - It just works, and does so much better than Nvidia eGPUs that seem problematic
Temperature - I have pushed the G1 (100w firmware) to around 72C in some games and it does jet out hot air for sure. However, the case itself is cool to touch, with the only warm spot on the underside where the GPU chip is
Dock - as well as a GPU it is great as a USB 4 dock, the USB ports are fast (10Gbps) and I tested them with an NVME drive
RGB - it has no RGB, while is great!
The not so great side of the G1 is the AMD support, in that as of now they don't enable some of the more interesting features like RSR and there is no performance adjustments that can be made (voltage, power, clocks etc..)
What would I change - aside from AMD unlocking some of its driver features I can't think of anything
Extras - I have gotten a little vertical laptop stand that lets me use the G1 in a vertical stance with more stability.
For the price it's a steal feels a lot thinner than I thought it would. But does feel solid ,not played much as I,m setting sd card up and it has to be sent off to SANTA . But really pleased with purchase no problem using Droix again as it was sent well packaged and very quickly.Also bought the case aswell which was a bargain at the price good solid case made perfectly for the device .
Early days but easy to set up with the TV for streaming.
Great fit for my handheld. Great quality and fast delivery for my order.
this is one of the better android boxes I have had very impresserd with it up to ye
Not my first time ordering from DroiX - as always, easy to order, quick fulfilment, and delivery was fast.
Very new to the growing world of handheld emulators, watched a load of vids around devices, saw prices and wait times etc but the order process was super quick and easy thanks to the DroiX team! It's a great little device to start with I reckon.
