The Anbernic RG35XX is the latest retro console from this well-known brand in the sector, and that could have really been saved due to its format and features.
A console in a vertical format and with a design that we have already seen previously and that surprises us negatively for using an Actions ATM7039S processor, a completely outdated 2013 chip. The problem with the Anbernic RG35XX is not the power but the closeness of this platform which makes it very difficult for this console to have some kind of alternative system, something that gives retro consoles a lot of life.
Poor choice of hardware for a fairly basic retroconsole, and its price also makes it doubly unattractive.
Specifications of the Anbernic RG35XX
Inside the Anbernic RG35XX we find a Soc Quad Core ATM7039S from Actions manufactured in 28nm. A fully expired Chip that incorporates four ARM Cortex-A9 cores that reach a maximum speed of 1.6Ghz and a PowerVR SGX544 GPU. There are certainly other options available that may be more interesting.
This console includes only 256 MB of DDR3 RAM and for storage we have two micro SD card readers to boot the Linux-based OS and store games.
Display and other features
The screen of the Anbernic RG35XX is an IPS OCA with a size of 3.5 inches and a resolution of 640×480 pixels. The internal battery is 2100 mAh capable of lasting up to 5 games and is recharged by a dedicated USB Type-C port.
In terms of controls we have a configuration with an analogue crosshead, four triggers, start, select, reset and function key. The connectors that we find are a USB Type-C OTG, micro HDMI and 3.5 mm audio jack. This console also has vibration in compatible titles, gamepad support and a speaker.
