Archos Gamepad 2

Posted by Charbax – October 13, 2013

Archos releases the Archos Gamepad 2 ($199/179€ MSRP) on Rockchip RK3188 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 28nm HKMG 1.6Ghz, with 2GB RAM, 8GB or 16GB Flash storage (perhaps more storage options to be available for people who want to store many Android games on built-in Flash storage and not on MicroSD?), 1280x800 super high quality IPS display, new improved Gamepad buttons, new improved design compared to Archos Gamepad from last year (2, 3, 4), 5000mAh battery for long enough battery life, Mini-HDMI output, USB host/slave, Bluetooth (nice for controllers too when connected to HDTV). Basically this is better than a portable open Ouya. The future of Android gaming is nice. If I do get the chance to test the device for a bit, let me know what I should test on it. Should I test certain emulator performance such as N64? Dreamcast? Which games?
