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 CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.

Is there an easy solution for my poorly optimized Open GL driver? I have been thinking about formatting my local disk. Please, I would really appreciate an asnwer.

The “easiest” solution would be using Linux. Which could be difficult for someone that doesn’t know anything about Linux. Reformating your drive and installing Linux one it would improve performance by around 3x in Citra.

Keep in mind that your PC’s hardware is a bit below Citra’s minumum specifications as well as your GPU being an integrated AMD one, meaning that your OpenGL drivers on Windows will suck ballz as AMD doesn’t know how to make decent drivers.

If that’s not an option, first reset your settings as you’ve been fiddling with them from what I can see. Go to Emulation>Configuration>General and select Reset All Settings.

Start Citra back up again and go to Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab and disable Hardware Shaders, see if that gives you a performance uplift.

As a last thing to note, you’re better off not touching the CPU Clock Speed slider you’ve been playing with unless you know what you’re doing. Underclocking or overclocking can severely affect Citra’s stability. Overclocking usually lowers performance as well.
