    I'm wondering if we can port that official gamecube emulator from the Chinese version of nvidia shield tv.
    Because it runs gamecube/wii games 1080p and fullspeed as well. The switch and nvidia shield tv are both sharing the same chip (Tegra X1).

    Those are full ports, not emulated.

    Even better. That means, that Linux on Switch is so much optimized, that emulators are running fine. That means that we have fullspeed PSX & N64 from the get-go (nobody has to port them first).

    I don't know about port but if Ninty release any GC games officially on Switch hopefully we'll be able to inject our own ;)

    Great to see, but, won't the downclocked specs affect the ability for Dolphin to run on Switch? GPU probably isn't a problem, but CPU certainly would be. Nintendo's officially emulated games run on Nvidia Shield TV, which that operates at roughly 2.0Ghz on the CPU. Switch is half that. Probably too early to tell, but could the Switch's CPU be clocked back up, at least partially, and if so, how much heat would that produce? As mentioned, the GPU probably won't be stressed for this, and to me, that's generally where most of the heat comes from.

    The tweet said 20-25 FPS with little to no major optimizations on open source drivers. I don't know how much more clear they could be about that.

    I'm pretty sure we will be able to overclock the Switch CPU in the (maybe not so distant) future.

    PS2 probably not, WiiU definitely not.
