Slowly Emulation in AMD AM3+ machines

It is the first time that I am testing this emulator. My PC, as you can see in the specifications, is not a good PC. But I can run the following games on it: Resident Evil 2 Remake, with almost everything on High, Marvel VS Capcom Infinite on High, GTA V, with almost everything on High. The CEMU and RCPS3 emulators also run at 60 FPS. I made changes to the DDR3 memories I own. Two 8GB, but one is 600 MHz and the other is 800 MHz. I changed the working frequency in the BIOS to 800 MHz. HT Link, to 2600 MHz and the CPU NB / Frequency to 2400 MHz. I didn’t change the clock because of BSOD. My Clock is 4.0 GHz.

My problems occur in both versions: Canary and Nightly

I understand that the 3DS is a very advanced console. But, I find it strange that the playable games are slow, the audio is bad and other things. The only game that runs without crashes is Final Fantasy Explorers. Mario and Luigi Dream Team and Mario Kart 7, run with problems. I haven’t tested other games. Would it be an Issue regarding AMD computers? I see some people play smoothly with old generation I5 processors.

There is a version of Patreon for AMD computers that works better?

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

Can’t really do much with Radeon on Windows to increase OpenGL performance. If you want more performance you can try dual boot Linux (e.g Ubuntu).

Understood. I’ll try. Thank you!
