I picked up the Sega Genesis Classic Game Console with the 80 built in I wanted to give you all a warning.

I doubt saving works, but if you got the console it would help you get more out of it. Just gotta buy a SD card then.
I'm wondering if it's something like flashcart for Revo K101 (you can upload roms, it's in the shape of original cartridge, but working only on Revo), or some cheap version of everdrives, maybe even the same thing which is available to buy on websites with chinese* stuff. Probably the last one (I wouldn't be surprised, many stuff sold by Atgames is available in chinese seller's offer, it's literally the same thing, just with different stickers and rom set in device's memory.
*Like AliExpress, Geekbuying etc.

Edit: I found the game differnces:
Only the included RPG's have save game support. SD card games don't.

Shitty too, because if care was put into these things they could really be worth picking up.
Basically this, the sound is the only real problem I have with the units. You'd have thought someone would have had a word with them by now, but nope. R&D's been done, stuck with what we've got

Research is conflicting for the correct answer, though. Some people have said that AtGames GOACs run with built in 68k, Z80 and FM implementations, ala RedKid, while some people said that the hardware runs on a emulator with a 68000/Z80 interpreter for ARM.
If the AtGames GOACs are truly native hardware with no emulation, then how would that explain AtGames's SMS/GG on a Chip? People report that they also run on discrete hardware implementations too; the Noza.
By the way, I own three "SMS/GG on a Chip" based consoles... The implementation of the PSG sound isn't that extremely bad on all of them. The only cons about it is that they have a slightly distorted amp and the pitch is one note off. Still better than the GOACs, though, which of course are miles away from the correct frequency. All designs of both the GOAC/SGOAC consoles seem to have a ROM contained in an epoxy blob, so it's almost impossible to replace it.

The same guy behind that IPS patch also did a "menu hack" in June 2016 where he tried to make the music sound much more tolerable:
To do this hack, download the menu hack files, on your SD card change the "GAME" folder to "ROMS" and make a new "GAME" Folder with the menu files. Then go to the SD card and select the menu files till one works.
