This page provides information about the GPD Win 3.



This device requires Sound Open Firmware. See Advanced Linux Sound Architecture#ALSA firmware.

Additionally, add the following kernel module parameter:

options snd-intel-dspcfg dsp_driver=1


The device firmware does not properly initialize the touchscreen, so a patched goodix module is required.

In addition, the touchscreen must be rotated.

Edit, or create, if it does not exist, the file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-touchscreen.conf.

Section "InputClass"
  Identifier    "calibration"
  MatchProduct  "Goodix Capacitive TouchScreen"
  Option        "TransformationMatrix"   "0 1 0 -1 0 1 0 0 1"

To fix the touchscreen initialization, install goodix-gpdwin3-dkmsAUR and reboot your device.


Check Low power S0 idle capability is enabled in the UEFI (it should be by default).

See Power management/Suspend and hibernate#Changing suspend method and verify s2idle is used.

To reduce power consumption during sleep, go to Advanced > RC ACPI Settings in the UEFI and enable CS PL1 Limit and set CS PL1 Value to 3000.

Known issues

Deep sleep

Deep sleep is not working and there is no fix.


Tearing when using Xorg and modesetting driver

You must install xf86-video-intel driver to alleviate tearing on GPD Win 3 when using Xorg.

You can additionally enable TearFree (see Intel graphics#Tearing), but be aware that there is a noticeable impact on performance.
