ODROID-GO Advance: $55 Linux Gaming Console Launching Next Month


After witnessing the success of Arduino-compatible handheld gaming console ODROID-GO, the board making company HardKernel is back with a successor.

ODROID-GO Advance is the latest retro gaming console that packs a faster processor and an updated display. The device runs Ubuntu, which means not only users can play retro games but also use the handheld as a Linux computer.

The console can play games from Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Gear, Megadrive, Nintendo Entertainment System, and Sega Master System

ODROID-GO Advance Specifications

The small Linux gaming console packs a 1.3 GHz Rockchip quad-core processor with Mali-G31 MP2 graphics. The device features 1 GB DDR3L RAM, which is enough to get smooth retro gaming experience.

The handled comes with a 3.5-inch LCD panel and features a massive 3000 mAh battery, which should offer 10 hours of juice.

Apart from that, there is a USB 2.0 port, a headphone jack, and plastic buttons on the surface to play games.

ODROID-GO Advanced Price

The six-ounce machine costs $55 and would start shipping by the end of January 2020.

The console is certainly inexpensive against the popular GameShell that starts at $139. However, there appear to be trade-offs in performance and build quality.

On the other hand, ODROID’s highlight is the 3,000 mAh battery, which is extraordinary for the price.
