So you think the LDK Mini replaces the RS-97 V3 screen?

I own have this model of RS-97, the worst is that for some time now, the Bootleg market has been constantly updating.

As a developer, would you recommend an LDK Mini as a final product?

 I even have a plan to buy RG350, but I think it's too big for me.

Give me some advice (since it's free).

Just one question

are the joysticks clickable; L3/R3 buttons available?
Yes!

L2 is KEY_PAGEUP, R2 is KEY_PAGEDOWN, L3 is KEY_KPSLASH, R3 is KEY_KPDOT.

Thank you! Finally.

I'm keeping this device under my radar.

XBurst 2 was not canceled, where did you get that idea?
Then its on hold forever ? Because Ingenic were working on a MIPS64 sucessor back in 2013~2014 and we never heard of it.
Unless the M200 is Xburst 2 ? Do you know what happened to that ?
Because apart from the M200, we got nothing from Ingenic beyond the JZ4780. I even looked at their website and that's all i could find.

Well, they did the X1000, M200, T01/T10/T20/T30 in between. They switch away from general-purpose computing to go towards IoT and extreme performance-per-watt. I guess it makes sense.

From what I know, the future Xburst 2 chip is still 32-bit, clocked a bit higher (1.2 GHz? Don't remember) but multi-core and vastly more powerful than the jz4770.

Well bring it on!

But for now a couple of these jz4770 devices would be sweet.

I heard that the GKD350 (GK350H) will NOT support the IPU due to the way the LCD screen is being used.
It's not a huge deal but I really like the IPU on the ingenic devices.

SWEEEEEET

so it's around 70 bucks at this time

Not much review currently. Not as booming as LDK did.

But I'm definitely gonna get one.

The clear version isn't bold, just wondering why nobody going with 100% transparent instead of these semi-transparent frosted ones ???

And the buttons on the clear versions are all black

I don't like the white one, the color scheme is a bit odd.

I like pocketgo snes/famicom-like white

So I'll probably get the black-orange or the clear white nevertheless

With these constant updates, you may need to wait a little longer, as I fear that three months from now a better version of the RG350 will emerge.  So the LDK Mini looks pretty good, but the RG350 is at least 40% better than the LDK.  It's pretty much running some N64 and PS1 games, not that I care about that, but that's pretty impressive for a $ 60 console.

Btw i must mention, if you pre-ordered one from retrogame300.com, i would suggest you try to get a refund.
I linked to that website as it was the first instance i saw it online but i've been told me they were asking for prepayments (i wish i actually checked for that before linking) and it's really odd that they delayed it to October when it already got released already on aliexpress... i can't guarantee you'll get one.

(In fact, i have no idea if anyone got the RG-300 from it either, i'm not sure.)

EDIT: Someone else who bought it there got reimbursed for the preorder with little issues so just saying.

EDIT2: Someone reported that he got his RG-300 from said website. So maybe you could trust them but it's still a huge bummer that you have to wait until October when you can pretty much get a refund and get that console well before mid october.

Yes. But luckily I haven't ordered any RG350 for myself yet.
I would say that it would be easier for me to buy via Alibaba, one.
I think the price is better and fast delivery.
Even better would be a small and powerful GPX Wiz.

Hi, I got mine in the mail today, grey/white color ordered from Anbernic AliExpress shop. It barely took a week to reach me!

First contact with the device quite positive, materials are nice,with grainy plastic on the front and back shell. The sticks have a nice rubbery coating and are clickable.

The screen is IPS, looks quite OK though since it's 3.5" you can see pixels more easily than on smaller screens.

Just had time to quickly fire up a PS1 game, I'll report after getting a little bit more to grips with it  ;D

Well, I ordered a RG-350 from there and last night sent them an email asking about the order and haven't heard anything back from them yet. 
I'll give them another day to respond and if they don't then I'm getting a refund and reporting them to PayPal.

I messaged them and got a response within a few hours saying the item has been delayed till october.  other sites claim to have them in stock, but don't seem to be actually selling them. i guess it depends on where you look.

I just got an email response from them:

Hello, the unit had been delayed. The selling on Aliexpress is not real. They are making preselling too.
We can get the unit at the middle of October. We can ship out your order at that time. Thanks.

Well i guess that settles it then but i don't, still hardly preorders ? Not sure it works like that but meh.

Tony uploaded more stuff, mostly minor changes and fixes :
https://github.com/tonyjih/RG350_buildroot/commits/opendingux-2014.08

One of the etnaviv's patch is mostly a header file from etnaviv which was gigantic but missing.

There was also a battery fix for the kernel 13 days ago but i'm sure the RG-350 is shipping it with it already.

I heard that they were planning to push updates to it. (including possibly HDMI out via a blob ?)
I hate to see it deviate from OpenDingux but there had been no stable releases for the GCW0 in a while...

@pcercuei Do you plan (and/or want) to get one for development or your GCW0 with the commits will suffice ?

Maybe this can run good  N64, or should we wait for PocketGo 3?

This uses the same hardware as the GCW0. Mupen64Plus works ok in some games and bad in some others.
Nebuleon posted it here :
https://boards.dingoonity.org/gcw-development/mupen64plus-technical-preview/

Here's a video of the GCW0 running it, RG-350 should be very similar (Same JZ4770 chip) :

I expect the PocketGo 3 to be either :
- Another revision with little to no changes (per usual)
- Switching back to ARM (most likely Rockchip or Allwinner)
- Never going to happen

Pick one

It seems that emulating N64 on these generic processors is a virtually impossible mission.

  Maybe there is some possibility of optimization or maybe even reduce the graphics quality of games.

 I ask you the question, what would the RG350 need to run N64 well?

Guys, there is currently a sitewide coupon on ALiExpress, that cuts 10 EUR from the price : "FRENCHDAYS". I spotted that info on french forum OpenConsoles.
