Inazuma Eleven 3 runs terribly even when it shouldn't

I have seen multiple threads about this game running terribly, and most of them refer to some sort of CPU chart to see if games can run correctly, I’ve checked and mine has a score of about ~3000 and the required score is 1800, yet it still runs like crap. any help?

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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • Please enable the Vsync option if you are experiencing screen tearing.

Your performance issues are because of your AMD GPU. AMD’s OpenGL drivers are incredibly bad for Windows. Meaning that performance in OpenGL based tasks (like Citra) is pretty horrible.

You can try turning off Hardware Shaders in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab. This sometimes helps increase performance for AMD GPU users. Though it’s a bit hit or miss.

Also, your CPU’s Single thread rating is around 1700ish, not 3000. Citra only uses one core for emulating games, hence the multicore rating of 3000 is not accurate for Citra.

oh, crap. I just kinda assumed it wouldn’t be single core only, but 1700 shouldn’t mean a freaking 30% ish speed. Or maybe it does, I don’t even know

Your CPU’s performance is also being bottlenecked by AMD’s horrible drivers. That’s the main cause of your bad performance.
Ideally you’d want to have either an Intel IGPU or a dedicated NVIDIA GPU (which is currently the best for Citra).

Though, do try this step if you haven’t already first:
