Rpi4 vs. Rpi3: Performance and emulator quantity changes?



  • Hello.
    With the recent implementation on the Rpi4, I would like to know if there are significant performance on the Rpi4 (specially Dreamcast and PSP) and if the Rpi4 supports other consoles (ex: PS2, Saturn, etc).
    I'm considering to purchase a Rpi4 but if there are no significant advantages, I"ll probably stick with my Rpi3 for a while.



  • Hello, Dreamcast and PSP works fine on rpi4, Saturn is not available on it (~20fps) and as far as i know, there is no PS2 emulator on any system. For Saturn, you should take a look at the Odroid XU4 which run it with better results.

    @skankster you can also have new arcade systems : atomiswave, naomi and naomigd, improvements concerning N64 cores.
    So, you just have to make up your mind ^^

    Somewhat related but, since you bring it up, does the 64-bit Pc version of Recalbox support PS2? That's what i'm setting up right now. So far i know it plays Saturn, Dreamcast, N64, and PSP beautifully (My computer is Ryzen 5/Vega 11 iGPU).

    Edit: I can play PS2 full-speed, and even upscaled to 3x resolution, using PCXS2 emulator. But it would be great if i could have Recalbox running PS2, alongside everything else. Recalbox is my gaming O.S of choice.



  • There is no PS2 emulator at all yet, for any system.
