It looks like you accidentally reopened Citra before uploading the log. The log gets cleared every time you open Citra. Have the log folder open in the background first before closing Citra then immediately upload a new log

Do these steps to make sure it catches the issue:

  1. Open Citra then File->Open Citra Folder then log folder (keep this open in the background, do not close the folder).
  2. Start the game, then close Citra after you reach the screen where it is slow and don’t reopen Citra or the log gets cleared so you have to do it again.
  3. Reupload the log here.

The speed of the games is slow for me, because I use AMD But the main reason for this is not AMD

Citra has simple settings, and does not allow like other Emulators For more precise settings, even older Emulators like PS2 have these features (like the image)

Thanks to the efforts of the Citra team, although I can not play

Well other emulators have been developed for longer, like two decades so naturally they will run better, they are also emulating older systems like you mentioned PS2 which came out 20 years ago while the 3DS has “only” been out for 9 years. 3DS also has an obscure GPU called PICA200 which is very difficult to emulate.

Since you mentioned you have AMD, you can try dual boot Linux (e.g Ubuntu) for a performance boost. I know one user that recently boosted their performance in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate by 2x going from Windows 10 to Ubuntu 20.04, from 30fps to 60fps on Ryzen 3 2200G using its integrated graphics.
