There are only very few Tablets available in the market that designed for the sole purpose of gaming. One new Gaming Tablet gets adding into the small list of gaming tablet namely, “JXD S192.” This device is introduced as Tablet, though there is some intention to make it a gaming console. This new gaming Tablet is equipped with Nvidia Tegra K1 chipset.
JXD S192 Retro Tablet runs on Android software. But the Android is old with a Jellybean version. Like you seeing in the images, JXD S192 has Joystick like appearance in the two horizontal sides. As well as, the screen orientation is locked with Horizontal forever. There is no way we can change it to a vertical position. The Joystick handles cannot be removed, and it always fixed with the tablet sides.
The Tablet gives us a feeling of handling a Joystick with playing screen. On the both sides of the handle, there are controllers like in the regular Gaming Joystick. The screen is 7 inches with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The screen resolution is 1920 X 1200 pixels of full HD IPS Retina Display.
The CPU cores are very interesting with the Nvidia Tegra K1 Quad-core processor with a clock speed of 2.0GHz. Gaming processor is the Nvidia Kepler with 192 CUDA cores. The device also supports DirectX 11, Illusory Engine 4, OpenGL 4.4 hardware acceleration. The RAM memory is average for a gaming device with 2GB LPDDR3 RAM. Inbuilt storage is 32GB which can also be expand using micro SD card up to 128GB. The configurations looks good except the average 2GB of RAM.
There is a mammoth 10000mAh battery to power this gaming Tablet. However, this battery only powers the device for 7 hours in case of continuous heavy gaming. This is understandable as the power hunger Nvidia cores while gaming drinks the battery juice at a fast rate.
On the rear side, there is a 13 MP camera and there is a front camera with 5 MP sensors which can also take video at 1080p resolution. Bluetooth 4.0 is available to connect the device with other gadgets and accessories. Also, we found an HDMI dual screen output to play a game on a big screen if we want.
Coming to the gaming and functionalities, there is a definite loss of functionality because of the Android Jellybean version included instead of a Marshmallow or at least a Lollipop version. At the same time, the games which can only be played on Nvidia Tegra are available for this device, though not a big advantage. It supports emulators for many gaming consoles, to make this device beyond the Android platform, which is very minimal for hardcore games.
There is one important thing all of us need to think is the RAM. The gaming experience in the Nvidia is always exceptional. But, the question is whether it would be great on this Tablet? To know the answer, We have to wait until the release. Now the JXD S192 “Retro” gaming Tablet is available in Pre-Order.
