Tbh, it doesn't surprise me that it looks comparable to the GP32 version atm - I played quake a fair bit at 200MHz on my Gp32 (one of the few that could reliably make it up there without adding extra lead to the contacts inside
), and it worked pretty slickly. And this version is, iirc, essentially a port of the GP32 version, and the core is set at 200MHz, so you know, somehow I'd have thought they'd probably look kinda similar.
THE main thing I'm interested in in terms of Quake, over and above battery life (200MHz on a Gp32 could last a while) and not killing the chip (200MHz was, imo, kinda pushing things a bit in terms of when the unit was likely to die), is the presence of the extra memory. Means mods might actually be sensible to run
And Quake had a fair few of those, iirc
