System Requirements

3ds-emulator-playing-zeldaSystem requirements for 3DS Emulator are heavily dependent on the game you want to play. Some games that are less demanding – Mario Tennis has been tested to work on most systems flawlessly – can be played on a relatively weak system. Graphically impressive games like Bravely Default and Resident Evil: Revelation can only be ran on a powerful system.

3DS Emulator Pro can utilize up to 4-cores within the CPU. That means if you have a quad-core CPU, you will see a significant improvement in performance over a single or dual-core CPUs. The types of processor also makes a big difference: unfortunately for AMD CPU users, they will see a worse performance than Intel CPU owners.

Graphics card is another integral part on running the emulator successfully. Some games can be successfully ran on even integrated GPU, but you will want a dedicated graphics card to run most modern 3DS games.

The only file you will need besides the emulator itself is the bios file, which you can download here.
