Analogue announces the Pocket, an all-new, all-encompassing retro handheld

In what has become somewhat of a yearly tradition, boutique console manufacturer Analogue has just announced another new machine in the works for 2020 and, for the first time, it’s a portable system. Christened the Analogue Pocket, this new system offers a unique take on portable retro gaming that has a lot of potential.

The first main feature on the menu is support for a wide range of portable gaming systems. Out of the box, the focus is on the Game Boy line full support for Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance. Analogue also promises support for Sega Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color and Atari Lynx using cartridge adapters which, hopefully, won’t fall too far behind the release of the system itself.

It’s essentially a lower power version of the 3900X, one of the best CPUs for gaming, with slower clocks. It has 12 cores and 24 threads, a 3.1GHz base clock and 4.3GHz boost clock, and 64MB of L3 cache. It also has a 65W TDP.
