Dolphin Wii Emulator Version 5.0 has been released, bringing more accurate, faster emulation and DirectX 12 support into the emulator's main release. This new version of the emulator will be making the program 64-bit only and has reached a whole new level of CPU efficiency with their new dynamic recompiler, making the emulator much more usable on modern systems. 

This new version of the emulator will be making the program 64-bit only and has reached a whole new level of CPU efficiency with their new dynamic recompiler, making the emulator much more usable on modern systems. Dolphin is available for both Windows and MacOS, though Mac users will only have the option to use OpenGL rather than DirectX 11 or 12.  

 

      The long awaited Dolphin 5.0 release is finally here! After nearly a year of bug-hunting and handling the release process, everything has come together for our biggest release yet! The three previous releases followed a very distinct pattern: sacrifice performance, hacks, and features in exchange for higher accuracy. As such, Dolphin 3.0, 3.5, and 4.0 progressively grew slower. But thanks to the cleanups put forward throughout those releases, Dolphin 5.0 is the fastest Dolphin has ever been!

By removing all of those hacks and outdated features while cleaning up the codebase, Dolphin has reached a new level of efficiency, powered by a revitalized dynamic recompiler. On the GPU side, OpenGL and D3D11 have seen tons of optimizations and accuracy improvements, and have been joined by a brand new D3D12 backend for huge performance gains. If there's a CPU or GPU extension that can make Dolphin faster, we take advantage of it.

At a basic level, Dolphin 5.0 is more accurate and more efficient than previous builds in every way. Individual games will vary, especially due to various hacks being removed along the way. Dolphin 5.0 can be downloaded for Windows and Mac OS X from our official website: dolphin-emu.org.
