Steam’s PC has no idea how to play a video game

There were some news yesterday about the best emulators for Nintendo Switch and Playstation 3. According to their team, Ryujinx supports Vulkan API now, while RPCS3 supports Save States.

According to Ryujinx vulkans is the standard feature for most AMD and Intel owners. Since their OpenGL drivers aren’t as good as NVIDIAs, owners of these GPUs can either deal with graphical bugs or debug code or use Linux. Despite having the use of Vulkan, Ryujinx can run faster and faster on both AMD and Intel hardware. Besides, Vulkan can use a shading language called SPIR-V which is much faster in compiling shaders than OpenGL is still used. This last will also benefit NVIDIA owners.

The effects of Save States on RPCS3 are the snapshot of what was happening on the emulator exactly at the time it was performed.

Save States are useful in many situations. Even in situations where you’re in the middle of a difficult encounter in a game, and so don’t you want to get back to where you were with a few enemies? In such a scenario, load the Save State created and remove the photos off exactly from the moment you took the pic. So you’re saving the money.

Download the latest version of Ryujinx and RPCS3 here and there respectively.

The Nintendo Switch seems to be capable of running many three-A games. For example, you can play Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond or Paper Mario: The Origami King. On the other hand, the latest version of the RPCS3 can improve the performance in many PS3 games.

Have fun.
