I've got a Nexcom VTC 6200-NI-DK box wich is a bit obsolete but nevertheless I'd like to install Android on it. As far as I understand its spec is far from being top notch:
- CPU -
Intel Atom D510 Dual Core 1.66GHz
- GPU -
- RAM -
I've tried different images of Android-x86 from Android 8.1 Oreo down to Android 4.2 JellyBean but I could only run them in
VESA 800x600 mode or lower and their performance was inacceptable (I tried to switch off animation and optimize Android from inside, didn't work).
My question, is it possible at all to achieve good-enough performance of Android OS on this piece of hardware? Would it make sense to research into making a custom build, possibly with custom drivers or dropping some unnecessary parts of Android, e.g. media services? This box is going to be used very specifically, pretty much for calculations using some Android software, but interaction with UI should be smooth.
