the use of Intel’s 12th-generation Core series processors, after enabling the AVX-512 instruction set, the performance improvement when running the PlayStation 3 emulator. Intel’s hybrid architecture Alder Lake processor has a performance core based on the Golden Cove architecture (Performance Core) and an energy efficiency core based on the Gracemont architecture (Efficient Core). After closing E-Core, only P-Core can enable the AVX-512 instruction set.
At the same 5.2 GHz frequency, when running “God of War”, the Core i9-12900K is about 15% faster than the previous generation Core i9-11900K, with an increase of more than 10FPS, both of which have the AVX-512 instruction set enabled and disabled hyperthreading. Intel’s 11th-generation Core series processors run PlayStation 3 emulators more efficiently than Zen 3 architecture products, and now the gap between the 12th-generation Core series has become greater. It is a pity that there is currently a lack of operating conditions when P-Core and E-Core are turned on at the same time, and the AVX-512 instruction set is disabled.
RPCS3 is one of the few places in the game field that can demonstrate the performance of the AVX-512 instruction set, thanks to the efforts of its development team. At present, RPCS3 has basically achieved the goal of compatibility with all PlayStation 3 games, and more than 2000 published games have been marked as “playable”. However, there are still a few games that have bugs when they are loaded and need to be fixed. However, compared with the PlayStation 3 games that only supported 62% of the PlayStation 3 games a few months ago, it has made great progress.
