Does Citra emulator need more multicore perfomance than single core performance?

Does Citra emulator need more CPU multicore perfomance than single core performance?

I’am really confused to choose between Ryzen 5 1600x who’s good at multicore perfomance or Intel i5 7600 who’s better at single core performance.

Citra doesn’t have multi-core threading. It would be next to impossible to implement multi-threading to Citra. (Correct if I’m wrong, devs.)

Go for the i5-7600. But please, don’t buy a CPU just for Citra alone.

it’s not next to impossible. it’s just that it can’t be done right now until the console has been fully emulated. and performance improvement is not a priority atm.
