In theory, it's less powerful than the RS-07 (Arcade Mini) because its soc is slightly older and lacks hardware floats.
It's also lower clocked than the JZ4760. Oh, and twice as less ram too.
I'm not interested in supporting this old device though. Given that supporting the RS-97 was already a lot of trouble and the RZX-50 is less powerful than that, i won't even bother with it unless the upstream linux kernel supports said SoC.

I understand the fact that is practically a waste of time to develop something for this device, but can we at least create a section with all the latest emus, menus etc that is available?

Size-wise this looks big & even slightly larger than the PAP or PSP in size since the corners aren?t as rounded. I always found that size slightly less portable to throw in a pocket comfortabtly and more like a unit I?d put in the case and back into a messenger bag.



I think I still like my RS-97 more for that reason (I want something truly portable that I could imagine even bringing with me in the summer in shorts (closer to IPhone size) and being able to pocket and even that unit is right on the verge of that) but I am jealous of that form factor and screen size.

VIDEO:

Don?t know if the firmware or emulators improved but the performance on Doom at the end of this video is way below what people have even seen lately on some PS1 emulation on the RS-97. Doom and Quake play way better on the RS-97.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GixlxYlLS3o

Would the 200mhz advantage that CPU in the RS-97 has, and the double the RAM advantage that the RS-97 has make that much of a difference in 3D emulation over this unit? I know the RS-97 has the Ingenic JZ4760B 528 MHzXBurst
VPU with XBurst 8-stage pipeline micro-architecture up to 600MHz.

I believe the Ritmix RZX-50 has an Analog stick... Strange

I?ve seen versions with the analogue stick as well. I believe it?s the same beyond that difference though.
