Emulation in 4K, what kind of rig do I need?

Well it's really going to depend on how far up you're wanting to go...

 

I'll have to check my PC Specs when I get home as I can't remember what I have off the top of my head.

 

I have a GTX 950 and I'm able to run quite a bit. I will say that I ran into slowdowns when trying to do 1080p Wii games just on my PC Monitor. (Might just need to do some actual configuring rather than sticking with default though.) However, the same card was able to run GameCube games at 4k when pushed to my 4K TV.

 

I think most older titles (PS1-era or less) are easy enough to run in 4K and really only require getting the resolution right plus a few minor settings. I mean I have an old Dell Optiplex with no dedicated video card, and I was able to run PS1 games up to 4K on my TV.

 

Again, I'll need to check some of my settings and full specs when I'm home in a few days.

 

For now, what consoles or generation of consoles are you looking to run?

What really got me interested was a video I saw of Nintendo DS games running in 4K. They looked gorgeous. I made a thread about it.

 

I should also mention that I do not own a 4K set so this is just a daydream right now.

Are there any vector emulators out there that can handle 4K displays? 2160p, that is, of course the sides would not use the full real estate.

 

Vector emulation with HDR on OLED could be a real game-changer.

 

AAE for arcade games...
