It has finally happened.

Going down the Rabbit hole of Emulation devices,

First up for GDQ fans, The OpenPandora, which is the device of choice of DS Dad.
It led me to GDP XD, which is an Android Handheld with some nifty features such as an option to map touch controls to the pad.

Then, I unveil my greatest discovery!

A Windows 10 based Handheld/Laptop hybrid, and surprisingly top quality.
The sheer versatility of the device is great, and to add that it's better than my current potato machine is another, which put into a device that's roughly the size of a 3DS, makes everything 10x better.

I've been following this device for a while and it's looking BEAUTIFUL! I was in middle school when the Pandora first surfaced, and I was obsessed with it even though I couldn't buy it lol. The Pandora's successor, Pyra, is also coming out eventually, and while I have high hopes for both, the Win is Windows, the Pyra is Linux and Android, and Windows is obviously a HUGE advantage for the Win

I have a few updates;
http://www.geekbuying.com/item/GPD-Win-5-5-inch-Game-Console-Intel-Atom-X5-Z8500-Windows-10-OS-4GB-64GB-Gamepad-Quad-Core-2-24GHz-Gorilla-Glass-Screen-1280-720-Type-C---Black-367872.html
Here's a pre-order of the Z8750 (the one with the fan, also a 5-10 Fps increase).

And for the first time, the PGS Portable


It's basically the same thing as the GPD, but with unnecessary additions (LMAO 1440p screen on "hardcore version") But it looks rather Ideal for DS emulation, but that's about it...

$330 is an amazing price! I'm definitely picking one up now! A handheld I can play Valis 2 on finally  ;D The PGS looked interesting as well but I'm a bit skeptical on the form factor. I feel like a device like that is bound to me much more fragile, while the Win looks more rugged and comfortable to hold (we'll have to wait to use it to find out). In terms of build strength, the Win reminds me of the DS line while the PGS reminds me more of the iPhones, at least from inspecting pics of them

-Chapter 2-
HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER!

Smach Z, after seemingly years has finally got it's bearings. Sporting some good AMD tech and a 1080p screen, 4G support.
Like the GPD Win, it can be Windows 10 based, on top of that the more powerful hardware ONLY means a more extensive library, and due to the AMD Hardware, Vulcan support out of the box (yay, performance gains!)

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/smachteam/smach-z-the-handheld-gaming-pc

The future of Handheld gaming PC's are still bleak, still in a rather niche state. We have the technology to make something GRAND, we just got to figure out how to cram it in a nice small form factor.

Its incredible, years ago people only did some "phablets" running android and based on PSP design (Yinlips, JXD, etc.) but now they are even using Windows 10, very cool.

GRAND DAD!

You did use this word on caps hoping that I would appear and post this, right:

Progress Report:
PSP, works perfect even loaded on Micro SD Card (Ys Seven, DXC)
Halo 1, Perfect.
Ys Celceta, plays well... plenty of slowdown.
Doom 1+2, LOL.
Ys games are perfect, even better with 720p, high pixel density (it looks more detailed)
Sonic Adventure, Great, some frame-dips, but still fully playable.
RE:Revelations, Same as SADX, still good.
Shovel Knight, Perfect.
Hyper Light Drifter, Perfect at 60fps.
Castlevania CoD, Too bad, unless I find some miracle speed-ups, it's a no-go.
Castlevania LoI, not yet tested.
Castlevania MoF, Perfect at Vita resolution.
Turok 1+2, Yep. Perfection.


I'll be tackling GC/Wii-ware soon enough, probably gonna transfer a movie on there just because.

Still waiting on my USB 3.0 for more storage (and desktop to GPD Win tranfers), Then I'll be taking on a beast... PSO2.

All in all, this thing is pretty fucking sturdy, the Sticks are a little on the sensitive side, Catches Wifi further than my phone, feels good.
