Being able to upgrade to 3gb of ram is nice and all, but I really would have thought they would pack in at least a little more horsepower for the next numbered iteration.
I've been eyeballing a lot of the portables, but I'm waiting for an affordable one that will handle all of my Dreamcast emulation near 100% (PS2 would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath for that). I'm honestly surprised to say that the Retroid Pocket 3 still ain't it. Ah well.
The RP2+ already handles Dreamcast very well. This new device has the same SoC, but it's flashed with Android 11 which is much more efficient than Android 9 (although 11 favors more RAM - thus the 3gb option). They're claiming 20-30% performance increase simply due to the OS. If true, this would put the RP3 into solid GameCube, light PS2 territory.
