What will the GBA Everdrive X7 have that the X5 don't?
« on: August 14, 2016, 06:28 PM »
I most definitely want at least the GBA Everdrive X5 once it becomes reasonably available...but apparently there's going to be an even better X7 version?  What will it have that the X5 doesn't?

After all, like Gomer Pyle says in that poker hustler episode, I want the best! ;D

1. The x7 is not comming soon, i would guess about 6 months to a year.
2. This is just speculation but the x7 may have a smaller cart size. (Removal of the sticky out bit.)
it may also support savestates in-game, faster loading and more.
Everdrives i own: EDN8, EDGB, EDGBx7, EDGBAx5, EDGG

At this rate, nobody can keep the X5 on their shelves so I may have to wait for the X7 anyway!

We can only offer speculation at this point but perhaps an X7 model might have these features:

-Provide longer battery life for your GBA system

-Perhaps come in a smaller standard GBA size game cartridge case

-Load games even faster as someone else already pointed out as a possibility, etc.

Though yeah I struggle to find ideas about how it could be made better as its so good it seems damn near perfect already.  8)

The faster loading times could make all the difference in the world, and perhaps with a menu more like the SD2SNES's resemblance instead of plain text only like most of the other Everdrives.

So what you're saying is that the X5 is like when Gomer had four kings, it's practically the best but not THE best and Gomer threw away those four kings! :o  After all with all that money on the table he wanted the best! ;D  Maybe the X5 is "damn near perfect" like those four kings but me and Gomer want the best! :D

Can you at least tell me for sure if it will take at least a 64GB micro sd card?  I do want to be able to have the entire rom set to play with just like I can with all the other Everdrives I have so far -- For SD2SNES and Mega Everdrive 32GB is plenty (almost double) while N8 and GB versions which I also have 8GB is more than enough for the complete rom sets.

The loading is pretty much instant at the moment.

Honestly loading times are short for my supercard sd mini so I think the X5 would be far better and I don't mind the size either. It's not that big.

Is there a tiny chance X7 would feature a gyroscope? That's the only thing that X5 doesn't have that I care about. If there's a confirmation that there's no chance X7 had it, I'll just order X5.
