    I’m loving the way emulation has been. First Citra with texture dumps and now this with super HD. Need to hurry up and order the last few parts remaining on my PC build

    this is fucking stupid why do this for just snes games why the fuck would you make a snes emulator that needs more power to run than a ps2 emulator? the stupid things some people do never ceases to amaze me! this is pretty much useful for no one because they can't fucking run it unless you have a 10k pc build :rofl2:

    As long as your PC has ten times more power than required to run a PS2 emulator, I don't see why not put that power into running a SNES emulator with algorithms to improve output in some way.

    I mean, nobody is forcing you to buy a "10k PC build", but if you already have one, like many of us probably do, then what's wrong to using that power for whatever we want?

    because bsnes and mesen are cycle accurate to the original console. Most 3d emulators aren't accurate.

    On a side note, saying that it isn't useful for anyone means is just saying its not useful to you. IIRC, speedrunners are allowed to use certain builds of cycle accurate emulators for speed running. There are rules and regulations in speedrunning based on what you are running.

    Why do you think that many people on here have $10,000 United States computers?

    That must be wrong.

    Looks nice. :)
    I captured the on on the left with the emulator screenshot feature, the right was "print screen" button. The black border on top and bottom is the overscan that was part of the display. I hid it when playing.

    However my pc is nowhere near good enough for high end settings :(
    These are the settings I can use without bad fps and even then the cpu usage is high enough to overflow. Even with my Nvidia GTX 1050 TI Hardware enabled is just not as strong. Kinda wish this emulator had pixel filters.

    Not in the US specifically, but sure many people that tend to like gaming on computers and also trying state of the art emulation concepts usually do have high end computers.

    Also, I specifically put "10k" in quotes because it is an exaggeration I'm replying to, a high end computer for games is not that much either.

    I care too much about not frying my CPU to run this.

    My 6GB 1060 could handle this, right? Along with my i7 6700? I also have 32GB DDR4.

    So what's the emulator to use if you want accurate emulation instead of "better than the original machine" emulation?

    so it's more because of CPU limitation than GPU?

    It appears that way, yeah. I was hitting 95%+ CPU utilization with only 17% GPU utilization on average at higher resolutions/upscaling multipliers.

    It runs full speed on most games at 896p with 4x supersampling on an 7-year old i5-3570k CPU and a GeForce 670. You don't need a supercomputer to get most of the improvements from this, and if you do have a supercomputer for VR or 4k gaming, then it will run this even better.

    Also, this build includes the SuperFX overclocking for Star Fox, which is amazing at 60fps.

    ..

    This is about internal rendering of Mode 7.

    Nothing about LCD or CRT etc.

    You can play this on a CRT monitor and it will look nicer than using actual SNES hardware.
