LDK is best.

So, is this RetroFW or the built-in Useless Firmware?

I have one of these on the way and was wondering if I should keep the SD card it comes with for Useless and flash the RetroFW on a seperate SD card.

Try the more late PS1 games like Tekken 3 lol

If you plan to use the emulators, there's no need to keep useless around.

Is there any Google Spreadsheet about compability/performance for PSX emulation on the LDK/RS-97?
My Handhelds: PS Vita, PSP (1000), New 3DS, NDS lite, GB SP (without Backlight),
LCL GameBoy (RPI3A+ inside), GPD XD (non-Plus) and a RS-97 with RetroFW (3.0).

Favorite: LCL GameBoy

I have ldk and rs-97 v3......both on the same retrofw. rs-97 v3 runs ps1 better for some reason, the overclocking holds a bit higher. I use tekken 3 for testing and although the ingenic chip is the ?same b chip? the rs-97 v3 runs ps1 games better than ldk (vertical).
Tekken 3 can be played at 720 n maybe a bit higher which lends to around 46fps (gpu has skipping set to 1) on the rs-97 v3 (game will cut out midway if set to 750). Whereas the ldk limits at 690 and lucky to hit 40 fps, try setting it any higher and the game freezes up on loading.
So from that you can translate what you will to other ps1 games. Also the comfort for using r1,r2,l1,l2 buttons is a bit easier in landscape hardware I.e the rs-97?......so if your thinking ps1 games I wouldn?t recommend ldk but if your thinking portability and have a major 16bit itch, then sure ldk is compact.
Note: it?s possible some versions of the ldk models might b able to overclock better but i?m Going off wat I got....
Gameblabla or 1 of the other tech legends could probably weigh in on this with more info but this is my conclusion.

Btw.....there are a lot of ps1 games that port nicely to the ldk, tekken3 doesn?t run 60fps anywhere yet regarding this ingenic chip and there subsequent devices. So that?s the only reason i?m Pointing out with tekken 3, because the rs97 v3 (and possibly v2) run that game the best so far from what i?ve tried...rs97 original,ldk vertical,rs-07,papk3s,rs97v3 and ldk landscape is on the way but it?s not even a b chip so that will count out before I even try.
I nearly finished ff9 on my original rs97 with no problems so like I say the ldk will support a lot of games, just saying specifically speaking for ps1 i?d Go rs97 v3....

Ok more testing has revealed to me (wat others have pointed out I think), the higher your cpu settings the more screen tearing occurs.....better fps but tearing starts.....well there?s a factor now

Rs97v3

has anyone got the link to the ps1 compatible spreadsheet that got started awhile back? for the life of me I cant get vagrant story past the 3rd story interaction. Just freezes the whole system. Also castlevania symphony of the night having trouble even booting? tried different roms and bios but nothing. noticed that the roms are all fairly small files...dying to get vagrant story running....just wanted to check if anyone else got a working rom or if its just not fully compatible...
