    reddit.com/r/hardware | 2021-07-16
    Technically yes actually thanks to Yuzu. It also works quite well on existing handhelds like the GPD Win 3 (and has seen major performance improvements since this video as well)
  • kiss my shiny metal
    Yuzu is avalible as a appimage. Yes you will be able to run switch games on the deck.
  • I emailed GabeN to ask if the Steam Deck was locked down at all, he confirmed that "It's a PC. You can do whatever you want."
    Emulating a Switch with YUZU isnt that hard. People are playing Skyward Sword HD with 50-60 FPS already on machines as low as i5-7400, 8GB RAM, 1050 2GB

  • Zelda Link's Awakening performance is godly on the Project Hades Update - Ryzen 5 2500U + Vega 8

    Most people probably want the "Stable 60 FPS" mod if they don't run a high end cpu: https://github.com/yuzu-emu/yuzu/wiki/Switch-Mods fps dropped a good bit with GPU accuracy set to high without this mod, note this mod only works on the version 1.0 of the game so uninstall the patch if you have it. With this mod i can run the game fullspeed everywhere on an old 4790k it's pretty amazing.
