Powkiddy X18 Game Console Review
Powkiddy X18 review
The GPD didn’t have many competitors when it came to clamshell handheld computers. In recent years they have done an excellent job of cornering the market with high quality devices that cover most niches, from Android gaming and Windows gaming to general computing and even IT support with the upcoming GPD Micro.
It’s long been said that GPD is unlikely to release another successor to XD, and with XD+ soon to go out of production, the market may be open for someone else to enter.
Who are Powkiddy? As the name X18 suggests they appear to be affiliated with CoolBaby and/or CoolBoy. While the latter two companies are not recognised in China, PowKiddy has a Chinese language website and X18 Black Lion has been listed on it for a few months now.
Their X18 Android clamshell device has a weaker specification than the GPD XD+, but the price is lower to compensate. The X18 is powered by a MediaTek MT8163, a 1.5GHz quad-core ARM A53 chip. The 2.1 GHz XD+ MT8176 is a step or two behind the ARM A72 MT8176. In fact, it even beats the original XD in both single- and multi-core performance, although the X18 MT8163 has the advantage of being 64-bit and running Android 7 out of the box.
Still, the performance jump between the original XD and the XD+ was not particularly impressive. The XD+ was aiming for the dizzying heights of Gamecube emulation, but never quite managed it.
By all accounts, both machines were perfectly capable of emulating your favourite retro emulators without a hitch. And I suspect the X18 will be perfectly capable of doing so too, provided the software implementation is good enough and the controller mappings work well.
In conclusion, it has a pretty decent price-quality-performance ratio that makes it interesting.
*Note as June 2022, the Powkiddy X18S has been released with new impressive features.
