Breath of the Wild Runs Just as Good on PC Emulator as Switch and WiiU

CEMU, the team that created the incredible WiiU emulator, has just released the latest version of the emulator and as we can see in the videos uploaded by YouTubers ‘YamGaming’ and ‘Jolu42’, the framerate of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is pretty much locked at 30 FPS.
If we pay close attention to the videos, we will notice some framerate drops down to 20 FPS in numerous scenarios, but this is not necessarily bad news for the emulator, as the very same thing would happen if The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was played either on Nintendo Switch or WiiU. So to put it this way, the CEMU emulator is running the game just as good as the original versions do at the moment.
Just as good we say, though this is an understatement. Why would we say that? What about the fact that the emulator plays flawlessly on 4k resolution? This means that the CEMU emulator makes The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild look a whole lot better than it does on the Nintendo Switch and WiiU versions. It might take some time before the emulator can run at 60 FPS reliably, but for the time being, it would be rather satisfying to see a future update that stabilizes the framerate at 30 FPS.
