    Isn't DeSmuME notably slower than no$gba?

    Do you mean totally brand new software or do you mean software updates?

    Then we need a Switch port of it, because DeSmuME just ain't the optimized on ARM.

    I forgot
    Nope, DraStic running on ARM has little to do with its speed, it's simply that Exophase developed DraStic to be a very well optimized emulator. As Exophase himself said:

    Which is weird, considering it runs full speed on my Android phone, and having a somewhat weak CPU.

    As I said, it's because it's an extremely well optimized emulator. Android wasn't even it's initial platform, originally DraStic was first developed and released for the Open Pandora which has a 600mhz single core ARM SoC, and as such was optimized to run on extremely low end hardware ever since its release.

    Is no$gba still noticeably faster than DeSmuME?

    I have not really been keeping up since around 2011.

    It's faster, but some games still have audio issues (Mario 64 still has crackling audio in the intro). It's good for
    debugging, but for general use, DraStic is superior.

    Not yet. DraStic is behind a paywall still until next year and it is not available for Windows yet, either.

    From what I have gathered, DraStic is faster than no$gba?

    I meant in terms of emulation, it is. no$GBA still hasn't gotten the SM64 DS intro right after all these years, it still crackles a lot. DraStic is super fast.
