Ahhh, Yes. I can't forget the promises of the Smach Z. Before the PGS, there was Smach talk. You will be able to play all PC games and have the power of the Sun in your really deep pocket...or huge fanny pack.
Just like all Pandora owners have a Pyra prototype (with completely different hardware, just like PGS prototype vs final unit). I wish I had figured that out sooner, as I wouldn't have been waiting on a Pyra, and could have saved myself some money.Hush up with all that, now! The PGS has a prototype, it just wasn't at Gamescom!!!

...is...i-is this how you b8? I think it is...
@ED, that all seems very surprising to me , especially after your initial post re temps of the Omap 5. I'm referring to your post 2 years back now where you mentioned the Omap 5 got sizzling hot. I know it was a while ago, but it's hard finding posts on it and things might be different now somehow
The GPD WIN now does have a better heatsink , air vents and a fan. Apparently GPD claim that under full load it doesn't exceed 79C , and the outside shell stays under 40C under full load. They are saying it can go flat out gaming without thermally throttling or getting uncomforatbly warm. We shall see though, as I said I won't believe anything until final independent reviews are done.
Yeah I can do that sometime this weekend. I had Firefox running a few tabs and Hexchat running IRC. But to see the significance of what those numbers mean, my prior experience was that the SoC would get untouchable hot within a few minutes of running, Idle or otherwise. I would need to keep a fan on it all the time. Not so much with my current setup.I noticed you said it's not doing much. Can you run a full load stress test and measure temps and frequencies after 30 minutes?
Not sure if your board can be enclosed to mimic the Pyra case, if so that would be good to.
If you could , that would be awesome
I currently have Return of Castle Wolfenstien (Quake 3 Engine) working minus sound, I'll try some of his other ports, but they're all very Pandora specific and generally the non-Pandora source code isn't ARM friendly, so I'll see what I can do.A video of the Pyra natively running Jedi Knight 2, Jedi Academy, Arx Fatalis and ptitSebs other great 3D ports in HD and stating the tested battery time (maybe even compared to the same games on the GPD Win) could boost the pre-orders, hopefully the 3D stuff has been worked out soon.
The old Driver only worked on Ti's old Ubuntu stock rootfs image with the ancient 3.8 Kernel. It was really crash prone and there has been a ton of kernel development done over the years.Why do we not use this "hacked" Driver from this Time for Testing 3D Things on the Pyra?
