Archos 5 gets OpenGL gaming chops

That Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet has proven to be a hackable little device. Back in early May, we talked about the Archos 5 getting an unofficial Maemo hack to replace Android.

The Archos 5 has now gained OpenGL capability and some sweet new gaming chops that Mobile gamers will appreciate. The video below shows the Archos 5 playing some old school 80's style games along with a newer music game smoothly.

In case you are wondering, this feature has been enabled by Archos, not a group of modders looking to add a bit of functionality themselves. The news was revealed at Computex this week.
