As most of you probably know by now, tueidj has written a Gamecube loader for USB and SD which runs Gamecube games in Wii mode. Among other things, this allows Devolution to take advantage of the Wii's superior hardware features. In many ways, the Wii is "Gamecube 1.5", as it uses very similar core hardware which is clocked 50% higher, with the addition of built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and USB 2.0 support . The Gamecube's PowerPC CPU runs at 486 MHz - the Wii's CPU at 729 MHz. Gamecube's Broadway GPU runs at 162 MHz - Wii's Hollywood at 243 MHz. Theoretically, this should offer a significant performance advantage. Something I've noticed when running certain games in Devolution is that gameplay seems to be smoother in Wii mode than when playing from disc. As an example, when playing in GC mode from disc, XGRA: Extreme G-Racing Association exhibits a somewhat erratic frame rate, which is especially noticeable when there is a lot of action on screen; yet while running at the faster Wii clock rates in Devolution the game plays very smoothly, without obvious hiccups. I've encountered similar behavior in Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2. I'm thinking that the faster CPU/GPU speeds in Wii mode allow Devolution to run Gamecube games even better than in a real Gamecube. Anyone else experienced similar results when playing games using Devolution?
