    As the title says, wii games now can run at like 95 percent full speed on ios devices like iPhone. If it can run on the iphone, theres no reason it shouldn't be able to run on the switch through an emulator. What do you all think?

    The A13 Bionic in the latest iPhone has roughly twice the more power compared to the Tegra X1 T210 (Switch). So that sums it up for now.

    To be honest, Tegra X1 T210 is a crappy and underpowered. Yeah, A13 Bionic in the latest iPhone is powerful than Nintendo Switch. I own iPhone, by the way.

    We're about 5 years since the X1, and Apple is the leader in consumer mobile chips and aren't selling them to anyone. So enjoy Dolphin on your jailbroken iPads because that power is never coming to current Switch devices.

    This is not an apples to apples Comparison (pun not intended) But the switch runs an entirely different operating system than iOS wii Games will run on switch. But the drivers need to be extremely optimized for the hardware. I would like to see happen on a current X one switch but I believe if it’s possible it will take a long time.

    Man, oh man, c'mon, you're better than that... OH C'MON MAN, learn more about the matter, porting an emulator to a system like horizonOS isn't like just changing the extension from .ipa to .nsp, you make it sounds like that's the way it's done.

    Of course switch hardware can handle dolphin, but for horizonOS more work has to be done and more dependencies has to be implement (in layman's terms), if you want wii and gc, boot Android and be happy or, like it's being done with dolphinios, start porting and focusing on porting the damn thing!

    I think you made it sound easy than it actually is. I'm not surprised with the reactions here.

    You don't need to be jailbroken. you can sideload most things with impactor (granted, only 7 days at a time without a developer account) or as in my case with Provenance-emu (OUTSTANDING project... PS, N64, etc run well on an iPhone X) build it directly to the phone using a mac or mac VM. I use a VM.

    I wish gbatemp website would ban people for useless posts like these.

    Unskilled people begging for things beyond their own capabilities is funny don't get me wrong, I love when stupid people ask for things :rofl:

    But I have no idea how developers do it, dealing with the crowd of people like this!

    I'm sure that's why most stay away.

    A13 Multi-core speed = 3457
    https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/904066

    Tegra X1 Multi-core speed = 993
    https://browser.geekbench.com/android_devices/803

    Keep in mind that the measured Tegra X1 here is Nvidia Shield which is clock faster than Switch.

    A13 is almost 3.5x faster, not twice.
