You still need a high end PC to emulate it on Dolphin
And even the Dolphin guys have issues getting all the games to run smoothly
Erm it ran fine on mine on my old school 9800 on GPU mode just fine
CPU a good dual core is just fine since dolphin only uses two threads
That might be true, but you seem to forget that console processing and graphics are considered a joke to regular pc processing power and graphics.
If I am correct, and I checked multiple sites to verify this, the PS3 has the following specs:
3.2GHz Cell Processor (Has both pros and cons compared to a PC equivalent)
256Mb System and 256Mb video graphics RAM (Yes, thats less then 1Gb of ram...)
RSX 550MHz graphics processor slightly under comparable to a Nvidia 7800 (It was based on the actual 7800 but with lowered features)
With that said, you have to remember a console is designed for gaming so its architecture is built for it. Even so, the PS3 is light years weaker then your "old school" 9800" GPU, your processor is probably weaker then 3.2 but I would imagine can multithread way better. Also, your RAM makes the PS3 cry itself to sleep. Your PC is more then capable of running a GC emulator, but a PS3, let alone a Vita, would have a LOT of problems without using native code and Vita kernel access. Even then, it probably wont run very fast since an emulator always takes more power then the original.
It sucks because I would love to play those GC games too, but chances are very slim a GC emulator would come out on the vita in the future.
NOTE* lastly, the Dolphin GC emulator isnt even perfected on the PC. Until its perfected on the PC, it will never see another system and be all that functional. I mean look at Dedalus, its speed is a laughing stock on the vita, and its a whole generation before GC and a hell of a lot longer time being coded.
