Thread: Retro Handhelds

Yes I saw that. Looks better then the smaller one, but most of these manufacturers are sticking to the same reference hardware design. I hope later this year we finally see the next generation of these handhelds begin. Screensize and ram don't need to be any more, although higher resolution or touchscreen would be good, but a faster CPU and GPU would really aid PSP, N64, Dreamcast and Saturn emulation a lot.

5" screen would be nice though. One guy checked the Super Console Pro with 1GB and 2GB of RAM, and he display the RAM usage on screen, and indeed, around 750MB of RAM were used all the time, on either console. So there was definitely no benefit for the extra RAM.

That's probably because the firmware/OS is optimised from 1GB, so any more just won't be utilised. When a new generation with more the system would be written to take advantage.

One idea with enough ram could be to do what the new consoles do, where you could have more then one game loaded at once and just move between them (like multitasking windows on a PC or Amiga.
