From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from GP2X Caanoo)
GP2X Caanoo, branded as CAANOO, is an open source, Linux-based handheld video game console and portable media player developed by the South Korean company GamePark Holdings. It was released on August 16, 2010 in South Korea, United States and Canada, and were also sold throughout Europe. It is the successor to the GP2X Wiz, and was showcased at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2010. The device's launch price was about [1 ] US$150.
The Caanoo is not a direct competitor of handheld consoles like
Nintendo DS or PSP, but rather an alternative open source device. Because of that, any software that is compatible can be run without the need of creating custom firmware or other homebrew applications. This is the last open-source gaming device by Gamepark Holdings, as they ceased production and development of gaming hardware to focus solely on software. [2 ]
Hardware [ edit ]
Specifications [ edit ]
SoC (System on a Chip): MagicEyes Pollux VR3520F
ARM926EJ 533 MHz embedded on SoC (architecture version ARMv5TEJ) GPU: 3D hardware engine embedded on SoC (
OpenGL ES 1.1 support) 3D performance: 133M Texel/s and 1,33M Polygon/s
main RAM: 128 Mbytes DDR SDRAM 133 MHz (peak memory bandwidth: 533 Mbytes/s)
video buffer: about 16 Mbytes of main RAM are reserved for the video/texture information
Operating System: GNU/
Linux based Flash memory: None (128 Mbytes reserved to the OS)
Connection to PC: USB 2.0 High Speed through EXT Port
USB Host: USB 1.1 standard socket
SD / SDHC memory cards (up to 32 Gigabytes)
G-Sensor/Vibration Motor High precision analog stick
Display: 3.5 inch
LCD 320×240 pixel (resistive touchscreen) Stereo audio
DAC: Wolfson Microelectronics WM1800 Embedded Microphone and stereo Loudspeakers
Power: Internal 1850mAh Lithium Polymer Battery (approx. 5/6 hours game/video playback)
Dimensions : 146 (w) × 70 (h) × 18.5 (d) mm
Weight : 136g
WiFi via adapter (USB dongle – Purchased separately)
Colors: Black/Blue, White
NB: the CPU embedded on Pollux has a good tolerance to overclocking (until 750 MHz the system shouldn't have problems, just a shorter battery autonomy.)
Not all CPU/SoC are created equal and these results are theoretical. Some may not be able to push much past stock frequency. Overclocking will vary between each Caanoo.
Games/Applications [ edit ]
The Caanoo can run several applications that emulate consoles or computer systems, such as
DrPocketSnes for the Super Nintendo, GnGEO for the SNK Neo Geo AES/MVS, Hu-Go for the NEC PC-Engine, PCSX ReArmed for PlayStation 1 games, MAME4all for Arcade Coin-ops and Picodrive for the SEGA Megadrive and its add-ons, as well as freeware homebrew games/applications. These applications are created by the community itself and not by the manufacturers. Most, if not all of this software can be found at OpenHandhelds, a community-driven website.
Gamepark Holdings also had a website focused on downloadable content named FunGP. It sold commercial Caanoo and Wiz games, as well as some retro Arcade games. It has since ceased operations.
Caanoo is not compatible
with software built for previous GPH devices (such as the [3 ] GP2X Wiz) without an application to allow it to do so. A compatibility layer named Ginge allows for most software to be compatible, and most applications have already been ported.
Multimedia capability [ edit ]
The Caanoo is a video player, an audio player, photo viewer and E-Book reader.
