Archos Gamepad N64 emulation

Posted by Charbax – October 16, 2012

The Nintendo games are the best in the world. That is why I'm most excited about playing those on the Archos Gamepad and it's awesome that most games seem smooth. Although I think the N64 game emulation on Android is still a work in progress. Here I show a bit of Super Mario 64, Wave Race, Wipeout 64, Diddy Kong Racing and also showing that Archos's button mapping works fine for Angry Birds.

    awesome, thanks for answering my question! I may end up getting one of these. It’s coming out in 1 month, right? overall, how does the speed /smoothness of the device feel compared to the mainstream Samsung or Asus tablets?

    The speed is super smooth. I do not believe that mainstream tablets are smoother, I think that’s more of an illusion or something. Especially even the cheapest Android tablets run super smooth now with Android 4.1, and Linaro has further optimizations for Android that can further smooth out all of those tablets, even the single-core ARM Cortex-A8 ones. But here, you want dual-core cortex-A9 with the quad-core Mali-400 to do things smoothly like this N64 emulation, for faster multi-tab web browsing and some other emerging Android uses like full desktop mode, full set-top-box mode, HD outputs of the user interface, etc.

    Did you happen to get any more footage of the interface other than the games?

    Not yet. I’ll post more videos when Archos let me try the device again.
