The Citra Nintendo 3DS Emulator has just been revolutionized and its performance and compatibility has now gone through the roof! No longer do you need a super computer to run your games, no longer are we ALMOST there. WE ARE HERE!
Plus its also made games look much nicer 😉 Check video for how overall improvements have fixed many graphical bugs.
Test results across various computers show that it averages out to be a *2x speed boost for almost everyone*.
#Citra will use much more of your GPU, removing some of the dependence on having a CPU with high single-core performance. As always, the actual difference will vary by game and by your hardware.
**NOTE: Citra runs at 60FPS, if the game doesn’t have anything to draw because the game is running at 30FPS, Citra will duplicate frames in order to draw at 60FPS. So external programs such as FRAPS will say that Citra is running at 60FPS. Technically it is, BUT it’s outputting frames at 60FPS. None of it’s interpolated from previous frames meaning it’ll look exactly like it’s outputting at 30FPS. In order to get a baseline of how well the EMULATOR is running, I used FRAPS framerate so the results are uniformal when showing performance in all the games tested!**
