    A smartphone called PGS, it stands for Portable Gaming Solution. It is capable of dual booting Android Marshmellow 6 and Windows 10. However, Windows 10 is the primary OS, while Android is the secondary OS, to enable you to make calls, and install apps etc.. This smartphone can actually run PC HD games at a decent FPS, considering its portability

    There are two version of the smartphone, one which is called PGS with a screen size of 5.7 and PGS Lite a screen size of 5.5. Below are the specs of both devices.

    Specs:

    CPU – Intel® Atom™ x7-Z8750 Quad-Core 2.4GHZ

    DISPLAY – QHD IPS 2560×1440 (5.7*) (HD IPS 1280×720 (5.5*) for PGS Lite)

    GPU – Intel® HD Graphics 600 MHz 16 cores

    RAM – 8GB LPDDR3 1600 (4GB LPDDR3 1600 for PGS Lite)

    OS – Windows® 10 (64-Bit), Android 6.0

    STORAGE – 128GB SSD (64GB SSD for PGS Lite)

    COMMUNICATION – 802.11a/b/g/n/ac + Bluetooth® 4.0 + 3G/LTE (without 3G/LTE for PGS Lite)

    BATTERY – Li-Po 6120mAh battery (Li-Po 4080mAh battery for PGS Lite)

    ADDITIONAL – USB 3.0 Host, HDMI 2.0 Host, 3.5mm combo, Built-in 5.0 speakers (2.0 for PGS Lite), Built-in cam and webcam (8.0MP/2.0MP) (5.0MP/1.3MP for PGS Lite), Second HD IPS display (4*), Telescopic analog sticks (basic analog sticks for PGS Lite).

    SIZE – 164.1 x 84 x 1.8 mm (160.0 x 81 x 1.4 mm for PGS Lite)

    WEIGHT – 320 g. (245 g. for PGS Lite)

    Preliminary tests of the prototypes gave the following results:

    Batman: Arkham City | medium-level graphics, HD-resolution, 27-32 FPS.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance | medium-level graphics, HD-resolution, 30-35 FPS.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Dark Souls 2 | medium-level graphics, HD-resolution, 32-37 FPS.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Mirrors Edge | minimum-level graphics, HD-resolution, 26-31 FPS.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Keep in mind that the images above are just demonstrating a prototype version of the device, and performance. With proper optimisation of the software, a boost in performance is expected. The final version of the device should also look different.

    5.7 inch is the norm nowadays for most people. I personally still cannot go anything above 5 inch. Besides, images I posted are just a prototype of the device. Their website has the actual final version, and how it's going to look like. It looks much smaller than that.

    kek. You'll be able to play old, non-intensive PC games at 30fps for a whole 3 hours before the battery shits out.

    I was thinking the same thing, but it looks impressive. I rather just buy a laptop instead.

    It kind of reminds me of the Smach Z, which sort of dropped off the face of the earth.

    I seen this before, but call me biased if anyone wants, I think the best is the Nvidia shield branded stuff. It has actual console games on there such as resident evil5 metal gear rising revengence, borderlands and more. They also have cloud game stream service for subscribers ($7.99 per month) and PC game stream as long as you have compatible Nvidia gtx GPU cards in the system. It has 1080 p 60 fps and 4k video. Just my insight.

    Worth the $200-$300 price tag.

    System actually looks pretty cool, I'd be willing to sell a 3DS or two to finance it if it was reasonably priced :P

    Well the Nvidia shield devices work just as good if not better, and only range from $200 - $300 which depends on how much storage you would want. It may not be a cell phone, so it doesn't make calls, and there no bill to pay.

    With Nvidia bragging about their tegra x1 mobile chipsets being better than PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and cost less than most other game consoles, while being limited to mostly android, it breaks limitations with actual console games (PC port) to prove its worth, and it made a good impression.

    While that's true, this brings back fond memories of my Xperia Play :') If this system works as well as it's being advertised and isn't too unreasonably priced, I'll probably get one.

    I don't even care about PC games too much but would like an Android tablet that could run more advanced things. Any that could run GameCube/Wii, N64, NDS, and maybe even modded Minecraft? always wanted to try it but never got a chance to, might be nice on a tablet

    Nvidia shield devices can play PlayStation one games at 60fps using the Epsxe emulator, it even renders stuff in hd, is that powerful if it can run full console quality games featured on PlayStation 3 and PC.

    I would try retroarch,but I have no idea how to navigate the menus so I wish they had a easier user friendly accessible interface for android and Wii

    Gamecube/Wii, no. The only Android device that can even remotely run Gamecube games is the Shield TV, which is a set top box, and even that struggles with most everything that is slightly intensive. NDS can be run by just about anything, but N64 requires something more hefty. Your best bet is the Shield Tablet, which will run everything besides GC/Wii stuff just fine.

    Well the wii emulators Are still premitive to android and so as the n64 and even the Dreamcast emulator.... The only one Dreamcast emulator on android. They are even trying ps2 emulators and not going so well... So with more time it would be possible

    The shield TV is better than the wii u which is a shame to Nintendo and people discuss ps2 playability on it before, so I have confidence in sheid devices.

    Sheild portable = tegra 4
    Shield tablet = k1
    Shield TV = x1 (best processor)

    I am well aware, I own all the Shield devices. The Dolphin dev builds work ok on the Shield TV, but I don't think they can do much more with it performance-wise thanks to the ARM CPUs used. Dreamcast and N64 both work pretty well, there's not so much performance issues with those as it is just compatibility and accuracy. PS2 emulation won't be around for ages, it's simply too complicated for current portable devices period and probably will be so for another 5-6 years.

    Yeah, I feel that's the case. Is more like people shifted attention to android program emulation when they saw potential that the performance were comparable to modern consoles,

    Five bucks that this thing will never get released or if it does it'll suck massive dinosaur balls.

    A smartphone where you need to boot into a secondary OS to make calls? Sweet
