    Gemei A330
    New Handheld
    [​IMG]

    Chinachip has sold their A330 board to Gemei, and it appears Gemei has taken the device in the right direction. Building from the mistakes of the Dingoo A330, this devices features better buttons and WIFI 2-player gaming. The device is currently for sale on a handful of sites for around $90. It appears to have a similar native software line up as the Dingoo A330 but will not play A320 software as this version is using a ARM CPU.

    that’s correct. the dingoo products had issues with vista/7 and 64-bit systems because the drivers were unsigned 32-bit drivers. it looks like this system has fixed most of the complaints the Dingoo A330 had.

    Gemini is the company who produced the A330 as I believe.

    The Dingoo team did not produce that one. [​IMG]

    there is information which will better answer your question in my Dingoo reviews. The dingoo digital team split, a few people stayed behind. the people that stayed have serious mental issues. the web site admin spent the better part of 9 months bashing the new company, known as dingoo technologies. he claimed that he was the rightful owner of the dingoo products and that the a330 was fake because he did not make it. he also said for 9 months that the a320 from dingoo technologies would blow up if you charged it.

    the facts...
    dingoo digital split and dingoo technologies was formed.
    dingoo digital keeps selling the a320 with the old logo
    dingoo technologies sells the a320 with a new logo and new native homebrew
    dingoo technologies buys a new mobo from chinachip and releases the dingoo a330

    the mobo is freely available to anyone who wants to purchase it, dingoo does not own the rights to the mobo. gemini has released a few other handhelds and devices in china, most of which were pretty nice. if you read the a330 review you will quickly see all of the problems the device had. it seems gemini was paying attention and they have fixed the issues and updated the board to use a ARM CPU which clocks in at almost 100MHz faster than the dingoo technologies a330.

    hope that helps,

    The stock emulators look pretty impressive. Booboo is also working on porting Dingux for this.

    everything the dingoo can
    with added connectivity between consoles

    but soon it will be able to do more
    and its a lower priced unit then others on the market

    How good are the emulators on these Dingoo/Gemei devices? Are they all Full-speed? I am interested to know about CPS1, CPS2, NeoGeo and Mame emulators. Thanks

    Here's a video of CSP2



    You can imagine how the rest of the emulators run.

    Well the emulators on the Dingoo were all great, so I'd imagine that on the Gemei a330 they will perform better.
    I'm definitely interested in getting one, price is great for something this versatile.
