Dolphin Emulator is the popular, top rated emulator that allows you to play all the games of Nintendo’s two most recent consoles that is Nintendo Wii and GameCube. With the help of Dolphin Emulator, you can play all Nintendo games on PC on Full HD 1080p resolution. The emulator is available for both PC and MAC and it is compatible with all PC Controllers, Networked Multiplayer, turbo speed and several other graphical improvements.
The stable release of Dolphin Emulator is 4.0.2, but you can also download the latest Dolphin Emulator 4.0-6109 and is available for Windows, MAC and Linux. The good news is the latest version of the emulator is compatible with most of the games and has a quite a higher success rate and only 2% games failed to work perfectly on this emulator.
Now the question that most people ask is, do we need a powerful system for playing all these games. Well, the answer is you need a mid range PC for running all the games without any lag or etc. Dolphin Emulator needs a powerful dual core processor because it relies on IPC (Instructions per clock) for performance. If you have a quad core processor then, it won’t make any performance difference as well because the emulator only use two cores. The additional cores will be helpful in performing the additional windows cores. We recommend our readers to use a Core i3 processor for this purpose but if you are an AMD user then you are bad in luck as AMD processors have a low IPC. Regarding the Graphic card, the mid end graphic cards will do the job. If you are an Nvidia user then we would recommend you to use Nvidia GTX 460 or higher and if you are an AMD user then AMD RADEON HD 5770 or higher will do the job. The emulator needs a minimum 2 GB of RAM, but we recommend to use 4 GB RAM.
