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

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.

The coretiming 2.0 change caused a regression unfortunately so try Nightly 1422: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1422

tried nightly 1422, unfortunately this didn’t worked for me.

I see, you could try configure Switchable Graphics in Radeon Settings to use your Intel GPU instead since AMD GPUs have poor OpenGL performance on Windows :confused:

I’m not sure if this game is demanding though.

Thanks! This finally worked for me. :slight_smile: Albeit the switchable graphics tab in radeon is missing since their last update so I decided to disable AMD in the device manager. Made my laptop became faster too!
