Ishiiruka-Dolphin (Wii)


Ishiiruka-Dolphin is a fork of the popular GameCube and Wii Emulator called Dolphin. Unlike the original emulator that focuses on compatibility, this fork is optimized toward performance, gaming experience, and speed- resulting in lower accuracy and stability in the process. On the positive side, it allows users with low-end PCs to play their favorite Wii games without sacrificing too much. 

The latest versions complement the Official Dolphin emulator while giving support for legacy devices. This, in turn, reduces the CPU usage on the graphics thread. This allows for faster emulation and more fancy options for high-end devices, and playability and stable performance for low-end devices. Ishiiruka-Dolphin is widely known for its unique Async shaders that provide stutter-free and performance-friendly shader solutions.

So if you are trying to play your favorite Wii games but can't run the official Dolphin on your PC, then you should give this performance-friendly fork a try.
