No price yet but it will probably be between US$150 - US$200, that's before buying RAM.

This FPGA stuff looks really cool, I might have to buy one once all the classic cores (NES through Genesis) have been through a few revisions. I wonder what the timeline will be for emulating N64 and PS1 era hardware?

That is so ridiculous. That thing is more expensive that a laptop with better specs and far less useful. And then adding a GPU and PSU to it...I know he’s doing it just for the fun of it, but all of it is just so impractical and expensive that it’s completely dumb.

It is over the top.

I want someone to turn one into a handheld with the GPU hooked up to it.

You are more paying because it is a 64bit processor and for its form factor. I think it is a bit over priced considering it isn't a quad core chip and only has 4gb of ram.

That couldn't be posted in the cheap handheld thread. Why? It costs US$400! For a RPi3 in a GBA case!

I could see that. It's a very custom device using images from other developers, so their statement makes sense.
