At first I was like, "didn't Retroarch add this a few weeks back?", but it looks like RPCS3 added it back in Early August.

Never thought about using a ps3 emulator before, gonna take a look. Gonna be impressive with fsr! Are all games playable? Or only some of them?

Apart from that, Anyone knows if there's a good one for xbox360? I just heard of xenia, but it looks a little bit abandoned

It’s far from perfect. Graphics are rendered correctly in most games but performance is still lacking although awesome compared to a year or so ago. Haven’t heard much about Xenia recently.

You're gonna need an insane CPU to run it

Got 5600x paired with 3080, would it be enough?

Edit: taking a look at recommended requirements, I could handle it, not sure about performance. May take a look and download it soon

Xenia isn't abandoned. It's undergone some huge changes and gotten some major improvements this year actually. The developers just don't put much time into PR, so it doesn't really get much attention compared to many other emulators. There's also the fact that the Xbox 360 is inherently a less desirable console to emulate for many people, since it's somewhat lacking in major exclusives and Microsoft itself has put a lot of effort into keeping 360 games playable on newer Xbox consoles.

rpcs3 is CPU bound, low GPU usage 🙁

Yes, but sometimes games just don't like running at any resolution above native. FSR is an interesting compromise for that

yup you need next level IPC i think

There are plenty of titles which absolutely hammer the GPU in RPCS3, especially at higher render resolutions. Try out the original MotorStorm for example.

Pretty cool. This is something I do occasionally play, so it's nice to have as an option.

Gl getting it to run. My 3600 with a dark rock was sitting at 77C the 1st time I’ve ever heard it’s fans run hard. Didn’t even do that on ac odyssey at 1440p. Ncaa football 14 can be a challenge to run even

It’s impressive you can even boot a loading screen of the ps3.

This emulator is so impressive, the PS3 is such a powerful piece of hardware it is quite amazing what they are doing. The PS3 at the time of its release was more powerful and more advanced than any computer you could reasonably buy on the market. Cell architecture was its downfall, since it was harder to code for and devs were too lazy to optimize for the ps3.

That's not really true about the PS3's power. It wasn't some magical supercomputer, it was really just the wrong type of CPU for a gaming machine. Great for processing large datasets though.

Why would you think a couple hundred dollar gaming console was the most powerful consumer PC on the market? This was never the case, lol.

The college football revamped package has helped me run NCAA14 more smooth. If you haven’t tried it out, may want to give it a shot

Friend with a 5950x and 6900xt couldn't get above 24fps in the first part of red dead

Just not ready for primetime yet
