320×480 makes sense because you can double the vertical height of a 320×240 game to take up the entire screen, but 480×320 also makes sense because it would allow a 2x integer scale of GBA games. Brandon is the founder of RetroDodo and created a YouTube channel with 180,000 subscribers dedicated to retro gaming products. But the makers of the RK2020 has acknowledged this and removed the firmware, admittedly its not the best thing to do for sales, but its good to see they are willing to sacrifice sells for authenticity. The moral high ground regarding cloned hardware is probably not it. You won’t be hitting it by accident. If it bothers you, you can probably mask it off with electrical tape from the inside of the shell.
If you switch the device off and plug it in, it will boot up and show that it’s charging. We can’t ignore that the RK2020 has stolen designs and firmware from the ODROID Go Advance, it’s unprofessional, unethical, and we feel supporting a brand that has done this is probably wrong. A 27 year old fella that's had a Gameboy addiction ever since he was a child. That’s a wide list of games consoles that the RK2020 can emulate, if need be you can install your own emulators, some are managing to install Nintendo DS emulation on here, but we can confirm it doesn’t work well. You’ll also find the START/SELECT buttons on the face too.
Be the first to know about the newest gear, the latest news and upcoming giveaways. On the OGA button 10 is F1, but here it is Select. I have a question about the software that the RK2020 is using. We then tested some more strenuous gameplay on the PSP and it played well, we enjoyed kicking ass for an hour or so without and major hiccups. The headphone socket is labelled as TV, but it’s not. Havn't seen much info on the RK2020 yet but it sounds like it could be the best handheld emulator of it's price grade. We’re very impressed with what the RK2020 can emulate, and it goes to show that China are really pumping out handhelds that can emulate more and more, every few months. My friend purchased his and it seems to have shipped with emuelec 3.5 but I dont know very much about this stuff so I’m not sure the significance of that other than its open source application on a commercial device. If you liked my RK2020 review, please consider sharing it! It seems the only thing you are able to do from in game is quit out with start+select.
Playing Dreamcast games on such a small, cheap handheld blew us away. Plus you don’t need to jump through hoops to use the buttons that should have been included on this one.
There are plenty of videos on YouTube showing off various games, so I won’t list them all here. That is a fair shout. This might not always be the case though. You can also change it using Select & ↑↓ in game. It’s not too distracting, but it’s there. On top of the RK2020 you’ll be greeted with four shoulder buttons, ON/OFF button, headphone jack, a USB C port for charging and a USB port for installing your firmware and transferring files.
But it has a lot of problems, some that the average consumer may not know about, but we’ll get on to that shortly.
But whilst we got two extra shoulder buttons, the rest remains basically the same as the OGA internally. It’s a 3.5 inch 480×320 display, very colourful and crisp and with good viewing angles. If is a clone of the ODROID, can HardKernel make a move where the future updates can only be used on the ODROID and “ban” the RK2020?
The raised R2 and L2 make it very easy to discern them from L1 and R1. Now the people behind this machine are looking for developers to fork the OS and properly support the RK2020. What happens when you try to boot arcade punks? Update: Previously in our review, the RK2020 was being shipped without firmware, but as of July 2020, they are now being shipped with firmware, so you can now play it straight out of the box! I don’t mind clone devices at all if they do a good job!!! The first batch of RK2020’s (including ours) came shipped with OGA firmware, and it works great straight out of the box. It does work fine with a pair of headphones plugged in though. I was given this device by a friend today who ordered it but had no need for it.
Soon, we’ll be seeing bigger and better consoles.
This is because the RK2020 is actually a direct clone of the ODROID GO Advance, it’s so identical that the team behind the OGA are actually trying to stop the RK2020 from using their firmware. In TheRA, I simpy can’t find a way to get to the emulator settings menus to change cores, frameskip, shaders etc. When you order the RK2020 you’ll receive it in a very average box, this is standard for Chinese handhelds, there’s not been one handheld out of China that has had a decent unboxing experience. – Doesn’t throttle or get warm This RK2020 handheld is special because it has the power to emulate Nintendo 64 and Dreamcast games for an incredibly good price.
), but it ships with a rubber cover which makes it nicer to use. It’s a bit of a mess.
The cover offers a slightly concave and nicely grippy surface for your thumb to sit in. But, the build quality just isn’t up to scratch.
Each day they’re making it easier for the average gamer to use, opening it up to a whole new market.
Yes, there were some frame rate drops now and then, but it didn’t really effect gameplay at all! It was designed in such a way that any OS for the OGA could be used on the RK2020. The lack of buttons on the RK2020 starts to become an issue when you dig a little deeper. It boggles my mind that the factory thought all those extra buttons didn’t do anything or weren’t important enough to include.
This one seems like it has potential, but it needs more time in the oven. It comes pre-assembled, is roughly the same price or a bit more expensive depending on where you live, and has four proper shoulder buttons. Especially for such friendly prices!! They both function with the same driver however, and look pretty much the same overall. I’m willing to wait it out in the hope that a developer takes a shine to this machine, but I do understand that the OGA devs could be quite pissed off right now and unwilling to step in. There’s no volume control on the RK2020, instead relying on holding L2 & ↑↓ to change the volume. But now that they have been caught stealing firmware, they have had to change to a different Retro Arch system. Where the RK202 lacks in build quality, it makes up for in performance. Hey man, thanks for your review – great site. Please note that this is a beta and is unsupported by us. It’s a little bit smaller than the OGA, and is very comfortable to play. 480×320 is a bad resolution for most systems that were 320×240, it just doesn’t scale well and ends up either looking blurry or pixelated. Love the design and size, but $94 is too much. Another method would be to use a Windows application that allows writing to ext4 partitions. He now wants to create the No.1 site to showcase the latest retro products from around the globe. CPU: RockChip RK3326 (Quad-Core ARM Cortex-A35 1.3GHz), Memory: 1GB (DDR3L 786Mhz, 32 Bits bus width), Storage: SPI Flash(16Mbytes Boot), External Micro SD Card slot with Firmware installed, Input Buttons: D-pad, A, B, X, Y, shoulder buttons: L1/L2, R1/R2, Analog joystick, Select, Start, Power-on, Ports: USB type C for charging, USB type A for WiFi Dongle/ External Controller, external Micro SD slot. There is no proprietary hardware inside the Odroid-Go Advance, so whilst it might be cheeky to build 100% compatible hardware, given the success of the OGA it’s hardly a surprise to see. However, the screen stays on. These appear to be two seperate volume controls, one for the system and the latter for RetroArch (I think?). Simply because the RK2020 handheld only has… well, one screen. Whether the devs or the hardware maker are going to step up at this point is anyone’s guess. BUT, I do agree on all the necessary improvements… The buttons rattle, but the concave ABXY buttons are very nice. In EmuELEC some emulators can benefit from being tweaked, for example N64 performs way better when the MUPEN64PLUS_LIBRETRO core is set. Preparing the firmware. So wait is this thing 320×480 or 480×320?
They could have easily added six vertical buttons on the bottom right similar to the 4 on the Q400 not doing so just seems lazy.
