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

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

How do I fix this? I really want the game to run smooth and not slow down at all.

Try enabling Hardware Shaders, this sometimes improves and sometimes decreases performance for AMD GPUs. Other than that, enabling the Disk Shader Cache will net you less stutter over time. Both can be found in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab.
