Hot on the heels of JXD’s new models comes word of two new machines from Yinlips. Actually, info on the YDPG27 has been floating around for a while – but now we also have info on another new and previously unseen model, the YDPG29. Word has it that both consoles are running Sunplus GP3033 SoCs which are based on a single core Cortex A8, PowerVR SGX 531 GPU and 512MB RAM. This looks to be the same configuration used in the lower end JXD S7300A and 5600A models. Nothing to write home about, but perfectly capable of running most games on consoles pre-N64 and PS1 era.
Brian decided to pick up both machines and has kindly provided a couple of photos (including innards!) and a short comparison video of the two units.
Both units have 7 inch capacitive touchscreens that look to be 800×480, shoulder buttons, singular analog nub and the YDPG29 has a real d-pad instead of the usual 4 separate buttons. No word yet on whether the analog nub is real or not. It’s rather an underwhelming announcement given the specs of JXD’s upcomers, but it remains to be seen if the price difference will be enough to sway favour in Yinlips direction.
Our friends at Willgoo have also uploaded a couple of YDPG27 videos.
