New $149 Acer Tab powered by Intel? - Franco - 01-14-2014 08:42 AM

A new tablet was announced at CES. The Acer Iconia A1-830.

Press Release.

I don't bother taking much stock in what CNET says, since they are too busy drooling over their iPads. Rolleyes But I have to admit.. love the new Acer's design. Even though they stole it from Apple.

Anyway, I currently have a Galaxy Tab 2. It seems to be less than ideal when it comes to PPSSPP, so I was curious if this tab would be a step up. It's got almost the same specs as the older Acer A1-810, but it changes out the CPU. 1.6GHz Intel Atom Clover Trail+ Z2560. 1 GB of RAM.

I'm tempted to sell my tab, and upgrade to this when it's released. I'm just concerned, not knowing how well PPSSPP will run on an Intel Atom based CPU.. Huh

Thoughts? At $149.. it's so tempting. It might be worth it just to have a 4:3 ratio, and the larger screen..

I hope it doesn't have dedicated Intel graphics.
