Game runs at half speed / below half speed

Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
Games seem to be running at below half speed when in the actual content. Not sure what’s going on, as I haven’t touched citra in months. It isn’t anything with the battery as the battery is set to maximum performance.

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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Go to Emulation>Configuration>System and set the CPU Clock Speed back to 100%. It’s not advised to mess with that unless you know what you’re doing.

You can try to deactivate Hardware Shaders in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab. That seems to speed things up for AMD GPU users in some games.
