    Hi guys:

    I have a RPi 2 running Emulation Station. Everything works great aside from the N64 emulator, which has a number of issues.

    My question is – those of you running EmulationStation on a Raspberry Pi 3 – is the N64 emulator performance good with the new board?

    I’m looking to upgrade to a RPi 3, but only if the N64 emulator is functional with the updated board specs. If you have tested it successfully, what games did you run and how much trouble was changing the emulator settings to get games to run functionally?

    Check the rom compatibility list here:

    If you overclock and edit the video mode to a lower default, you get some very good performance. Check out YouTube for examples.

    Here is a NON overclocked example on the Pi3.
