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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.

I had the same issue with my amd gpu and I had to uninstall my drivers and install version 22.5.1, hope it works for you.

The new AMD driver requires a workaround that is only present in the latest Citra Canary versions for now. Please use that with the new driver. The performance improvements are pretty crazy.
