New ODROID Retrogaming Console: ODROID-Go Ultra
ODROID-Go Ultra is latest ODROID portable gaming console, powered by the same Amlogic S922X hexa-core Cortex-A73/A53 processor found in the ODROID-N2+. The new model also adds a 16GB eMMC flash for faster storage and increased RAM of 2GB. The OGU PCB shape is identical to the OGS, but it has a totally different circuit design and requires a heatsink to cool down its more powerful CPU. Due to the dual PMIC architecture, the charging time is slower when the battery is fully discharged. Therefore, a specially designed USB charging cable is provided with the device for faster charging. Connecting both the Type-C plug and Type-A plug to the OGU ports maximizes the charging rate.
At this moment, the reference Ubuntu 20.04.4 BSP image supports the following systems (cores), atari2600, atari5200, atari7800, atarilynx, gamegear, gb, gba, gbc, mastersystem, megadrive, nes, pcengine, pcenginecd, psx, segacd, snes, psp, mame2003, n64, dreamcast, gamecube.
