Citra System Requirements


I am wondering if there are general system requirements for current Citra builds… I’m wanting to run Sun/Moon and was wondering if someone could help to see if my specs are acceptable…

OS: Windows 10 x64
CPU: AMD FX-8350 8-Core 4.0GHz
GPU: GTX 1050 ti 4GB

let me know if this set-up can run all, most or none of the Citra roms


Please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions. The only requirements for Citra is a GPU that supports at least OpenGL 3.3 and a 64-bit OS, but you definitely want a processor with the highest possible performance per core.

Performance will vary based on your CPU. Keep in mind Citra is early in development so it may not run full speed even with the best CPU on the market. It’s best that users try it out for themselves.


So that means I can use a Windows 8.1 lap top then


From the FAQ, yes.

Citra is actively tested and supported on various 64-bit version of Windows (7 and up), Linux and macOS 10.12 Sierra or higher. Other platforms may work, but aren’t tested by developers. In far future, mobile platforms may be targeted as well. We have no plans to support 32-bit operating system officially.
