Just wondering what the problem is

I’m having some real issues running anything. but I’m not particularly looking for support. Just a question. It seems weird to me how poorly everything runs for me, but when looking at task manager. Nothing is maxed or even exerting too much. It seems to not utilize my system at all. Not sure what it’s using to run stuff. I do have an AMD APU. Is that it?

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

post your system specs.

citra currently only uses 1 core. your cpu usage will be between bigger than 0 and less or equal to 25%. it may use other core for things like multiplayer.

AMD, specially pre-ryzen cpu, apu have poor single thread performance
and less than optimal performance with a AMD video card (or apu in your case).
