Seriously old chip with poor specs.
Look elsewhere for S905x / x2 / x3

Is the S905W still relevant?

With the new X2/X3 chips at a decent cost it’s not a good choice to go to the S905W.

Hi all, I bought a unique q96 mini off ali express for £15 with the S905L chip. With 8GB ram and 128gb rom i thought this is a steal. But I am struggling to get an emulation system to run on this as all forums dont list the S905L sadly (that I can find). I did however download retroarch apk and installed a few N64 roms to run on it although the setup is not ideal… its run android games really well though… Any thoughts as I really do feel the box is seriously usable… Cheers

CE worked without any problems on my S905L test device using a u-boot from the pie branch.

8GB DDRAM on S905? Weird?

Yes, this SoC only support 32bit line RAM, so max 4GB.
