The developers of the Yuzu Nintendo Switch emulator recently announced the arrival of its Prometheus update, delivering proper multi-core support and massive performance gains. This news comes just days after an anonymous DirectX 12 source port for Super Mario 64 was outed.

The Prometheus update should finally enable popular titles like Super Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild, and Super Smash Bros Ultimate to run at 60 FPS on a wider range of hardware configurations. While not all games deliver a full-speed experience on Yuzu, performance boosts of up to 100 percent have been seen, going by BSOD Gaming's benchmarks.

Even with multi-core support, Yuzu remains a very demanding emulator. However, owners of high-end CPUs like the recently launched Core i9-10900K should be able to run many games at 60 FPS. A high-spec GPU like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti can help push render resolution up to 4K without sacrificing performance, for a better "docked" experience than the Switch itself offers.
