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

Edit, or create, if it does not exist, the file: /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf.

options snd-intel-dspcfg dsp_driver=1

Once done, reboot your device.


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.

Notes: Non-hardware-specific actions to switch the suspend mode should be documented in one place to avoid duplication. (Discuss in Talk:GPD Win 3)

Switch to s2idle sleep mode (enabled by default on recent kernels):

# echo s2idle > /sys/power/mem_sleep

To reduce power consumption during sleep, enable the following setting in BIOS:

Go to Advanced -> RC ACPI Settings

Enable CS PL1 Limit

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.
