GPD-G5A+ ?
« on: May 26, 2014, 02:35:25 pm »
Any updates on the "plus" model rumoured to be coming out? (the one with the IPS screen?)

No idea. My guess is that perhaps they postpone until they release their RK32XX device, but who knows...

The features I'd like to see on a g5a plus model would be increased ram (2gb), vibrator motors for n64 rumble pack emulation/haptic feedback, and a better d-pad.  I'd keep everything else the same.  Screen resolution is kind of a double edged sword on these devices.  IPS would be nice, but it would be more taxing on the GPU.  I suppose it is inevitable that they would upgrade the screen on a plus model, and I would enjoy the better viewing angle, but I don't want a huge performance hit!  The only other upgrade I'd do to the g5a is to try to include a wrist-strap anchor somewhere on the side of the unit so you could attach a wrist strap.  I actually attached a wrist strap on my g5a.  At some point I'll write up a short tutorial in case anyone is interested.
