Introducing mClassic; The World’s First Plug-and-Play Graphics Processor For Gaming Consoles

Unfortunately for console gamers, most video game consoles don’t have the option to upgrade their graphics card, unlike PC gamers. Times are changing for the video game console world with the mClassic, a new plug-and-play graphics processor to launch on Kickstarter soon. mClassic’s video processor analyzes each pixel in its immediate and global contexts to determine the most suitable processing per pixel with Marseille’s propriety technology called Contextual Processing. mClassic’s patented technology redraws every single pixel on the fly at 120 FPS with near-zero latency and eliminates jagged edges that are smoothed over by our advanced anti-aliasing algorithm.  

The creation of mClassic is the result of an ongoing partnership between Marseille Founder and CEO Amine Chabane, and N.W.A. Rap Legend Arabian Prince who happens to be a fierce gamer. The mClassic stick weighs less than an ounce, measures 0.8in x 1.6in x 2.2in and includes Marseille’s VTV-1224 chip, 4K Chroma 4:4:4 Scaler Processor, HDMI 1.4b Receiver/Transmitter and 120 FPS Graphic Post-Processor.  It also features three function selection modes including Pass-Thru, Full-Processing, and Retro Game Mode.
