The GPD Win 2 is a Windows-based handheld computer that is the successor to the GPD Win. It is manufactured by Chinese company GamePad Digital, and crowdfunded just as its predecessor was. Announced in first-quarter 2017, the crowdfunding campaign officially kicked off on January 15, 2018, and quickly surpassed its goal. Within days, it reached $1.8 million USD funding off of a stated $100,000 goal. It was released in May 2018. The GPD Win 2 is rated to run AAA-spec video games, and to better run newer generation video game emulators.

GamePad Digital started shipping units to pre-order backers in May 2018. Linus Sebastian reviewed a pre-release version in January 2018. He said that he did not think that the speakers were great, but acknowledged that he was reviewing a pre-production version. He spoke in glowing terms on the keyboard, noting that it was already a significant improvement over its predecessor. Also saying that the shoulder buttons have improved in quality, with a more firm clicking feeling. He praised the ease of access of making configuration changes on the Win 2 as opposed to other portable devices. As far as performance, he noted that integrated graphics leave a lot to be desired, and that newer games will still have stutter, and mediocre frame rates. But that older games are generally fine. He did note an impressive increase in emulation performance, testing games like Star Fox: Assault in Dolphin and Grand Theft Auto 3 in PCSX2. He noted that there may be some slowdown in some games, but that the input lag is negligible.
