Speed below 100% no matter what

Issue:
No matter how hard I try to fix this, the game speed is always at 80%. What’s weird back when I had
my old computer, which was way worse than this I had no trouble running games.

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

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

You can try turn off Hardware Shader and see if that helps.

You will most likely need to use Linux (e.g Ubuntu) to get better performance, you will probably get at least 3x more.

Or you will need to swap to Nvidia for your next graphics card purchase.

Hmm well I bought this graphics card last winter. I’m on a tight budget.
I’ve been told to change the graphics api from OpenGL to Vulkan but I don’t have this option in my settings. This is how I’ve seen it should be:
renderer_settings
And this is how mine looks like:

There is no Vulkan renderer on Citra, only OpenGL. You can read about the UI changes here:

Consider trying like Ubuntu, you can install it on a new partition or on a new drive.

Thank you. I guess I’ll get linux then.
