Hi Folks !
I am a die hard Sony fan, upgraded from PSP to PsVita a year ago and now I’m heading to the Nintendo Switch.

I tried to find some informations about all the questions I have but answers I found are not as precise as I want them to be.

I/ Retro Emulation

Here are the retro consoles I play the most: GBA and PS1. How are these consoles running on Switch ? Full speed with sound ? No crashes ?
The emulators run by stand alones or RetroArch ?

Bonus: how is SNES emulation ?

Thanks guys !

GBA emulation works pretty much perfectly, it can run standalone with the mGBA Homebrew app or on retroarch
PS1 works well too, tho it may need overclocking a bit here and there, and afaik there's no standalone Homebrew app for it, it's mostly on the retroarch core
SNES works perfectly too, idk about standalone but it's also on retroarch :)

PSNES standalone is good also.
mGBA is standalone, i think better than retroarch.
PPSSPP standalone also works very good.
Flycast for dreamcast emulation. didn't test it enough
MelonDS for NDS emulation, works very good, i love it.

Would love to find a way to create nsp forwarders for standalone emulators, because at the moment only retroarch forwarders seem to be do-able, but still a lot of work.
