Recently I highlighted that the Nintendo 3DS emulator Citra was doing a big move over to Vulkan, giving it a modern rendering system to keep on pushing performance. The latest updates also give a big boost for Linux / Steam Deck.
The developers regularly put up development builds you can download. In their Discord, they mentioned that the recent Canary 2658 release switched the compiler to clang on Linux which "Gives a performance boost of 20 to 30% on Linux devices" so this should be great for future Nintendo 3DS emulated gaming on Linux and Steam Deck.
Nice to see a continued focus on performance for Linux!
Any readers using Citra? What do you think to it?
You can see more about Citra on the official site.
