Cemu | CPU Benchmarking | Zelda Breath of the Wild

Scroll this

The Complaining Gamer shows you how to test your cpu using Cinebench to find your single core cpu performance which can then be translated for use in Zelda Breath of the Wild and Cemu 1.9.0.

  1. Might be good to mention that 175 is closer to the minimum requirements. And that everything else has to be configured properly,can't just load up botw without the others and expect a 30 suddenly.
    Cemuhook/Fence skipping,GPU accuracy set to low,and the Nvidia settings for concerned cards. There's a possible performance increase for AMD cards on Linux,due to mesa drivers having threaded optimisation for Linux.

  2. Note to the author dont confuse single core ipc with perf of multithread quad which is the standard..

    If thats the case single means ONE which cemu cannot run on one single core. So this is as useful as balognas…

    Now test should be done on cinebench quad multi thread PERFORMANCE instead of single ipc

  3. i7 6800k @ 3.8 ghz and 32gb of Corsair Dominator Platinum @3200mhz scores 161 cb most of the time i only see a drop and i can hardly call it a drop down to 29 fps the only place frames drop is kakriko village where it magically goes to 19 fps for a second then recovers to about 20 to 24fps without cemuhook im pretty much stuck to 19 – 20 fps everywhere

  4. intel i5 4460, base clock 3.2ghhz, boost 3.4ghz, during the test it seems it was only at 3.2ghz, single core test result: 135

  5. 4790K devils canyon intel processor single core : 175.
    30fps with slight stutter every now and then.

  6. i7 5820k @4.2 / CineBench score 166. I use a Samsung 950 pro PCIe NVMe M.2 drive 16 Gb ram and gtx 1080. I get a solid 30 fps with Cemu 1.9.0c and everything set up properly

  7. i7 3770k 3.6ghz 122cb 19-27fps in towns 24-30 fps everywhere else 16 gb ddr3 1333mhz ram 980 ti

  8. Nice video, i got 151 cb on my i5-6500, but im getting significantly less fps, like 20-23.
    It is possible that something is limiting my cpu? or it could be just because im using an amd card?
    sorry for broken english

  9. It's really worth mentioning that the single core performance might me relative, specially for people on laptops. For example an i7-7500u can run a single core at 3.5Ghz, but since it's only a 15 watts CPU, if you push the two cores it can only mantain its clock at say 2.8Ghz, so the performance on CEMU won't be as good as the cinebench score might indicate.

  10. So… I got like 400 score in CPU and 70 fps in the test, what do I do next? I'm not sure lol. I've tested the cores, like just activating one of four, and then using 2, 3… But it's always the same, 15-20 fps

  11. 3770K @ 5gHZ delided 182 cinebench score, but I run at 4.8ghz 24/7 174 Cinebench. I get small drops in towns, but for the most part solid 30 and will hit 60 in shrines. When is Intel or AMD going to give me a reason to upgrade?

  12. i5-4690K @ 4.5GHz, R9 380 4GB, 8GB DDR3 = 179 cb
    In BOTW i get like 20-23, in towns I can't even reach 20fps I'm under 20fps all the time. I just can't get 27-30 stable and idk why. I see other ppl with the same CPU and even weaker CPUs get solid 27-30. I need help ASAP!

  13. Are people with high-end rigs and cpu's experiencing frame drops during action-heavy sequences, such as large explosions in the game? Just curious

  14. i got an intel 17-6500 cpu
    2 cores 4 threads
    2.60 ghz
    intel hd graphics 520
    open gl 3.2.0
    will botw run on this machine?
    give it to me straight doc

  15. man i have 149 points on the bech i have a i7 6700-NONK and i run the game at 11-12fps …

  16. 4c/8t @ 4.69GHz, AMD FX 9590 Single Core score: 102 Avg FPS: 12-15

  17. i7-3770 (non-k) overclocked at 4.1Ghz made 152 single core. I get 30 fps maybe 70% of the time 🙁

  18. Yep, not playing this anytime soon, got a score of 75, AMD A8-6600k GTX 750 ti might have to get it on the wii u, so damn pricy though.

  19. I do not see fence skipping on mine. Did they remove this setting or am I missing something?

  20. I got an i5 3570 3.4ghz. It benchmarked at 132 single core performance.GPU is nvidia gtx 670ftw. Only turned on vsync in nvidia control panel. Used the settings you recommended in your other videos in Cemu. Im playing at 1080p and getting a playable 20fps with occasional hiccups. Its playable. Nothing game breaking so far.

  21. Can anyone tell me how much a difference it would make if I switched to an nvidia card? I have an i5-3570k @ 4.2GHz which got a single core score of 152. I typically get 20-25fps in the overworld and 15-20fps in towns. My gpu is an R9 380x and I have 8GB of DDR3 RAM @ 1867MHz.

  22. cinebanch 138
    Intel Pentium GPU G4560 2 cores 4 threads @3.51 to 4ghz
    Palit GeForce GTX 1060 Dual 6GB GDDR5/PCIe/SSE2
    Patriot Viper 4, DDR4, 8GB(2x4GB), 2400MHz
    And before i did any modifications to cemu i had like 20-22 fps and now after i modificate i've got like 4-14 max :c i need to run cheat aneginge on 5x to play :/

  23. I got a score of 691 but i only get 24-28 fps what do I do to move up to 30 fps can I make it that far with i7-7700k

  24. i got 107….. i only have a lenovo thinkpad T460. 2 cores 4 threads @2.4Ghz
    intel core i5-6200U CPU
    intel (R) HD graphics 520, open GL version:3.2.0 build
    acording to cinebensh, i have windows 8, 64-bit, core (build 9200) but have windows 10 installed.

  25. intel core 2 extreme @ 4.0Ghz OC, 8gb ddr2, gtx750ti, single core score 133. fps is around 25 most of the time, not less than 20 and rarely 30.

  26. Windows 10 64 Bit
    i5 6600k @ 4.4 Ghz OC
    8 GB's DDR4 2400 Mhz
    R9 390 XFX Double dissipation
    (CPU) Single Core Score: 189

  27. I5-3570k @ 4.33ghz gtx 1080

    147 singlepoints in game 31-34 fps

  28. my singlecore bench on cinebench was 194 and i can't even run botw on cemu with 10fps. gtx 1080 as gpu. i dont get it

  29. single core 124cb intel i7 6700hq cpu 2.60 ghz 16 g ram nvdia gtx960m So im guessing im no where close to getting a constant 30 fps?
