    Just as scheduled, a new Cemu update has dropped and can now be downloaded by the public. This new version of the Wii U emulator, 1.22.12, adds some important fixes and new speedups. There's been a fix for those experiencing crashes in the Vulkan--the new default API as of last month--settings, and some tweaks have been made so that certain loading screens in Fatal Frame 5 will no longer crash the emulator. Also notable for this build is an improvement for Vulkan where both the async shader and pipeline compilation are multi-threaded. This means that visual pop-in won't be as prevalent or last as long, and that background compilations will be sped up. Grab the latest version over at the official website, below.

    For those who don't know- the multi-threaded async, that means that Cemu can now use the rest of your CPU's threads that it didn't before to work on the shaders loading in. For systems with 16 threads or more, shader pop-in will be pretty much nonexistent now.

    Yeah, at long last this emulator can finally use my ryzen 1800x to it's full potential.

    Basically, it's finally able to match what RPCS3 can do when it comes to shader generation in real time as opposed to pausing, stuttering, and loading all the damn time.

    Only on Vulkan with Async shaders enabled-
    Otherwise this update won't make a difference

    Oh rip, no OpenGL support? I have a GTX 1080TI and was under the impresison Vulkan underperformed relative to OpenGL, is that still the case?

    really depends, amd does better with vulkan and nvidia with opengl yes, but who knows the performance gains from the new multithread potential here for your specific build compared to opengl without it

    At this point, it’s much better to use Vulkan than OpenGL even with Nvidia.
    The 1080ti will support async shaders. Just make sure you’re on the latest drivers.

    I’d only suggest using OpenGL on Cemu for the few games that are completely broken with Vulkan

    For example
    If you tried BOTW on both backends, I guarantee you’d have a better time on Vulkan

    Latest drivers? *Shudder*

    Last time I tried installing latest drivers, I had terrible audio issues where my audio would produce pops every few seconds, as a result of severe instability. This issue persisted after DDU'ing and reinstalling said driver almost a dozen times. It was a known bug that nVidia hadn't fixed in the previous 5+ versions, too, and was very well known. I've vowed to never install latest drivers again once I found and installed the older driver version I was using. Hopefully 441.66 supports async?

    Well you could either
    A. Create a system image, download the latest driver, and then restore the system image if it causes issues

    Or
    B. Look for a download for your old driver version and save it in case issues come up

    Or
    C. If there is audio issues again, try looking for updated sound drivers.

    Emulators are developed specifically for the most recent AMD and NVIDIA drivers. You’d get a much better experience, so I’d suggest you work on trying to get it to work.
    You’ll also possibly get a massive performance boost in the high end emulators if you can manage to do so

    Then again if you have such s beast of a machine, you are probably running Zelda Breath Of the Wild at like 150 frames per second and won't notice much difference due to all the Zelda specific hacks and fixes.

    Nice, i used this once to play Genei Ibunroku since even the jp version is censored on the switch, and i dont have a wii u at least yet. Really good emulator.

    no, have to use something like dual boot, bootcamp, virtual machine, etc... (I would go with dual boot)
