    dolphin can run slower for any amount of reason
    updating graphics drivers
    updating dolphin
    updated dolphin resetting settings / adding new settings/ auto enabled new features
    other applications taking up cpu/gpu resources such as anti virus or anything thats running in the background in the tray icon area
    a virus or malware taking up resources
    windows 10 gamemode is known to cause some negative performance issues in some situations

    but without knowing what changes have been made to your system before it was running slow, its impossible to know whats causing any slowdown

    What are your Settings? With Resolution only on 480p (Native) you should only haveslight performance dips but most of the times you should have a playable experience.

    This is like looking for a needle in a haystack, at least tell the following:
    1. Whole specs of your system
    2. Did you change anything recently (including various updates)?
    3. Dolphin settings still the same?
    4. is it the same game?

    Please give the ones who want to help you something to work with!

    Are you using a external monitor?
    Is it running at the same frequency as dolphin e.g 50hz or 60hz?

    What resolution are you outputting it at? If it's higher than the res you used prior to upgrading to Windows 10, maybe that's it.

    If not, try reinstalling Dolphin. And, check the resource monitor in the Windows control panel when it's running to see what (if anything) is taxing the cpu or gpu.

    Also, try other games. Some run better than others in Dolphin. I have a Quadro K5000m in my old laptop. HOD3 runs fine. HOD Overkill stutters.
