Both the Lynx GD (Game Drive) from RetroHQ and the BennVenn's ElCheapo SD flash carts for Atari Lynx had some awesome updates in the last few days. If you've been following the progress of these two projects, both are aiming for blazing fast ROM loading from an SD cart. The RetroHQ cart is more of a 'premium' product that features an all new menu system with game screenshots loading, a cheat system and many configurable options. It will come in professional packaging and will be available from Atari Age and Dragon Box. Check out the 'first look video' here.
BennVenn's version of the cart aims for the budget market and provides the basics for playing ROMs from an SD card, it's fast, but doesn't have all the fancy features or packaging, but comes at a much lower price point. The boards are ready in China according to BennVenn's latest update.
Atari Gamer has both carts to review and we will be doing a head-to-head review in this coming week, so keep an eye out!
