Hyper Base R1, cheap Retro console with Amlogic S905X3

Today we find a Box prepared for emulation that seems very interesting for its price and what it offers called Hyper Base R1.

This seems to us a good option, as it includes Box Tanix TX3 with SoC Amlogic S905X3 and 4 GB of RAM. In addition to using this box as an emulator we can move most apps, play 4K UHD content at 60 fps without problems and games in 2D and 3D. As systems we have Android 9 in the internal memory as in a normal Box and EmuELEC 4.4 in a micro SD with more than 70 emulators installed and thousands of games. We just have to insert the micro SD with EmuELEC loaded with games, to start the Box in emulation mode and access the games, if we do not insert it, the Box will start with Android 9.

A simple and fairly inexpensive solution for those who do not want to complicate with installations and downloads of retro games that also includes a pair of joysticks with vibration to play. As always, we recommend backing up the micro SD card as soon as it arrives.
