    Should be able to play PSX games with full graphics effects on with every game at this point. My PS1 shell is about to be updated.

    It's kinda a shame to see the micro-hdmi ports since it's not like any TVs use micro-hdmi, you always have to end up using a converter with those little, super fragile connectors.

    I don't want Micro HDMI ports. Can we go back to just HDMI?

    Almost asked what a "meme cabinet" was. Because there's no way I'd get coherent results if I tried finding the answer to a question like that elsewhere online

    Micro HDMI is a downgrade, but everything else is an excellent move. Really good, low cost SBC for makers, I like it!

    At least there's a backup microHDMI if one breaks.

    I was hoping for built-in flash. But overall, I'm very pleased with the upgrade as well.

    I'd love to know how much more powerful the Videocore VI is than the 24Gflops IV.

    PS2 will take years to run well on any ARM CPU, so not that.

    But PS1 and N64 are already possible on a Pi 3. It's more than enough for PS1, but N64 will vary depending on the game and how well the emulator gets optimized for ARM.

    There's isn't "yet" an ARM Build for PCSX2 so I doubt it. N64 and PS1 definitely.

    I'd imagine psx/n64 to run smoothly, ps2 is probably unlikely.
    Glad I got one ordered! Though this is literally like 2 weeks after I got a working Debian 64bit build on my pi3B with graphics acceleration...

    True. You're not wrong about there being a spare. And I do agree, I was hoping for atleast 4gb of onboard storage, but it wasn't a major want for me either.

    Bit sad that this won't fit in my NESPi case but then again, I'm looking for excuses to upgrade my Model 2B. It's not bad but lack of built in wifi or bluetooth means the USB port is constantly used up.

    Everything seems to suggest that the Videocore VI is right around 50% faster than the Videocore IV. Dolphin should at least run now. Will it be playable? That's the million dollar question. For what it's worth, the cpu upgrade should allow a lot of older consoles to work with run-ahead turned on.

    Oof I really want one. I've always wanted a Pi, but never really had the money to spend on one. Definitely don't have it now either, but still, great news for the day when I will be able to get one ;) Feels like it's getting on par with my gaming desktop :o hahaha

    Something tells me Melee doesn't count as "basic GC games."

    Oh well, just sitting here chillin' like a boss with my ODroid XU4...

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    ODroid XU4. The guys at ODroid Retro Arena, who are now known as RetroArena, have the best implementation of RetroPie right now on an SBC that I've heard of that doesn't call for one to spend $200+ on something like those UP! boards that CAN emulate GC games (a Youtuber even made a video where he thought of what a hypothetical GC Mini might look like during the whole NES Mini/SNES Mini craze). The best version is known as THERA 3.0, and the most it can do emulation-wise is up to DC and its arcade variants at speeds that, while not full by any means, definitely aren't unplayable unless if you're doing anything with something primarily 3D on the system.

    There's an option for built in flash on the Compute Module models.

    *looks around*
    *only a single usb-c port on his laptop*
    *everything else is mini/micro-usb or has a proprietary port*
    did I overslept?

    also the c port sucks, it breaks by itself. at least only the c to proper usb adapters the thing that breaks, not the port in my laptop.
