Best android stick for emulating? - hamzamark - 01-22-2019 06:33 PM

Hi all,

Today i posted about it on reddit, but i would like to ask here also:

I would like to ask, what do you think, what is the best android stick ( actually stick, not box ) for psp emulating?

Im thinking about two products: Amazon Fire stick 4K or X96s ( ver.4GB)?

Sadly i cant find any test videos from Tekken DR/6. I would like to play it ~60FPS HD/FHD.

So, what do you think? These sticks or another one?

Thanks for the help! Wink

Most of the Android Sticks are going to have underwhelming CPUs. The RK3188\3288 and Amlogic S905\912 are not really going to handle demanding titles at native FPS great without frameskipping especially at 720p or 1080p resolutions. If you can not do a box then temper your expectations. If you can do a box then the Nvidia Shield should generally work for most games, just not always with 60fps hacks\patches on demanding titles, but for the rest handling native PSP speeds should be ok.

First, thanks the reply!
Now i have two questions:
The X96s supports Vulkan, it not boosts a little bit?
What about Fire stick 4K?

I've never seen anything about that "Dvalin" GPU on X96s. At least the Fire Stick 4K has a PowerVR GPU, it should support Vulkan. Anyway, Android Vulkan drivers generally aren't that good, so you'll probably not see much difference between OpenGL and Vulkan on most games as you would on PC with NVIDIA/AMD GPU.

X96s is an amlogic s905y2 looks to be slightly better then the s905, but still single core performance of half the (now geting old) CPU in the shield, so my general advice above is probably still pretty accurate... though I have not personally tested a device with this chipset.

The fire tv stick 4k (2018) you can play monster hunter freedom at 2x resolution (so not hd\fhd) at a stable 30fps, but that is one of the easier to run titles for PPSSPP and it kinda goes downhill from there until you hit demanding titles (like god of war chains) which are basically unplayable at any settings. But really you would get similar results from a cherry trail z3735f windows based hdmi stick from 4 or so years ago. My z3735f stick does about the same as the new fire tv stick and it is not a recomended experience. Though the fire stick does handle hd video playback much better then the z3735 does for whatever that matters to you.

Thanks, the answers guys!
So, i think i will buy the X96s stick and i will upload a test clip to youtube, what the "new" amlogic chipset can do.

I am also looking for a convenient solution
