The GPD Win is perfect for playing older Windows games.

However, newer titles can also be played with lowered graphics or resolutions. This list is a sampling of how Windows games run.

edit: i have added a "controls experience" tab to outline how the game plays with the gpd control wise, whether it has native controller support, works well with the thumbstick controlling the mouse, the touch screen weather it has community made Big Pictue Mode configurations (see this entry) or non of the above. after all, what good is a game with a solid framerate if you can't control it?


Games by nmkd are currently only based on YouTube videos (not game stream, native games) or played on a Surface 3 which uses the same chipset. (Marked with [S3])

*Games contributed by Gin2168 are typically played for 10mins at the lowest settings to determine playability and scaling potential. Should you decide to play the game further and/or complete it and find better settings or performance benchmarks, feel free to edit the table. For now this is a shotgun approach to giving people an idea of what will be playable and what will not be.

**At this point I (Gin2168) have setup this table to be an easy means for anyone to add info and settings for games that they are testing. As this Wikipedia develops, I expect that the table will be done away with in its current state and each game receiving their own individual page (see Doom 2016 for an example).

***None of these tested games include HiAlgo Switch at this point (unless noted), so some of the older games may very well run better with it. Further tests can be run for those games that will support it and have that added to the tweaks section of the game page =D.
