The emulation scene never ceases to amaze me. The Nintendo Switch Emulator, yuzu, now had a Vulkan renderer to hopefully boost performance.
Quite early-on for this emulator, with game compatibility not having progressed far yet but yuzu is a very active project being worked on to improve it all the time.
Part of that effort is the new Vulkan renderer, which is available for people who support their work on Patreon to get Early Access to features ($5 a month). They have a blog post up going over some of the details and it's really impressive what they've been able to achieve. Since it's still quite experimental, with plenty of missing features they said they will slowly roll it out for everyone across December.
Actually getting yuzu running is quite involved currently, if you're interested in trying it you can find their quick-start guide here. I think I'll personally be waiting until this is all made easier somehow…
Projects like this become essential when companies move onto their next hardware, emulation enables us to keep classics alive and so they're important to the history of gaming.
