The company iiRcade is one of thousands of vendors at CES this year. The iiRcade team made their debut at CES 2020 with their take on a home arcade console. The machine is designed to function as both a bartop unit and as a full sized cabinet.

The arcade machine itself is a bartop sporting a 19” LCD display with 100W stereo speakers. For internals it has a 1.8GHz Hexa-Core processor, an 800MHz Max Quad-Core GPU, 4GB Dual-Channel LPDDR4X RAM, and 64GB of storage.

It’s a robust little arcade engine.

This year iiRcade is debuting a new console design featuring a light-up marquee along with a taller 64” frame. The new design shows off a curved top panel and a new speaker grill configuration to better emulate actual arcades.
