The GCW-Zero is based on an Ingenic JZ4770 1 GHz MIPS CPU, with the OpenGL ES 2.0 compatible Vivante GC860 GPU, and 512 MB of DDR 2 RAM. It features 16 GB of onboard flash storage, expandable via a MicroSDHC slot, USB 2.0 OTG, Mini HDMI, and 2.4 GHz B/G/N WiFi.

On the software side, the GCW-Zero is running OpenDingux, a build of Linux originally created for the Dingoo A320/A330 handheld systems. With OpenDingux, developers can easily port over existing Linux games and applications to the GCW-Zero, which is likely to be a big part of the system’s software library.
