Bad Performance on ADM Ryzen 7

My machine is not the most high end possible but is pretty medium and most games I’ve testes run sub-par with what is suggested in forums etc. For now I’ve tested Kirby Planet Robotop and Super Mario 3D land.

System Information

  • Operating System: Windows 10
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700U

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

You can try disabling Hardware Shaders in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab. This sometimes improves performance for AMD GPU users on Windows. But yea, the bad performance is completely because of AMD’s horrible OpenGL drivers on Windows. You’d have a much better time on Linux using the open source Mesa drivers instead (at least 3x the performance).
