Check how your CPU will perform in Citra!


#1

Warning: This list may (or may not) be accurate.

I recently saw a spike of threads that said: “What’s the best CPU for Citra / Can my PC run Citra?”.
As Citra mainly relies on single core performance, there is a website that updates and fills out this task.
Currently, the i7-7700K takes the lead on single core performance, while my i3-6100 takes the 93rd place.

How did you know your position.My cpu is i5-2400 3.10 ghz!!
EDIT:My cpu’s rank is 351.

Take these rankings with a grain of salt.

It also depends on supported CPU features, what kind of OS you use, what version of Citra (and how it was compiled) and also what GPU + drivers.

How an application performs is a rather complex problem. The best method of knowing is by actually trying it.


#4

it would make sense that the i3 7350k is on the top, given that intel designed it to be a budget gaming cpu, 2 cores/4 threads and video games are still a single core performance hungry.

come to think of it this might actually be a great for emulation use, since most emulators won’t use more than 2 cores anyway, this cpu might be a great candidate for emulation purposed machine (if you want to build that for any reason)


#5

There’s ways to use N cores in citra for certain tasks like shaders, texture decoding, Y2R streaming and certain game threads. It’s just hard to set up properly and that’s a big question for the future. Maybe thread pooling or a good task library will be needed in that time. This, however, requires that citra reaches enough accuricy for thinking into refactors.
