Is Dolphin on GPD XD going to get any better? Or is this pretty much the best we can do?

I am honestly surprised how well this works, didn't expected it, but I think full speed GC/Wii emulation is out of reach for this device.

Here is a video of Mario Kart DD on the Ubox 4K, an android box with a 3288 CPU running at 1.8 GHz:

It's nice, but not even close to fullspeed.

No. i don?t think.
we must wait for another SoC generation (or two), and so much improvements on the emulator for getting something playable.

Dolphin devs stopped development for 32 bit CPUs, so no. Will require at least a Tegra X1 and upcoming SoC

I don't see it happening, unless someone with a great deal of programming knowledge and skill manages to make their own optimised branch, but even then it's a lot of effort for potentially very little gain.

Realistically speaking here, the best we can probably expect out of the XD, emulation-wise, is quite good PSP,N64, Dreamcast, and Sega Saturn emulation. (Since these emulation areas still have a lot of room for improvement)
I've tested the latest builds of these, and quite a few games are very fast and playable. (even with the XD underclocked at 1.4ghz)

super Mario sunshine seems very playable on the GPD XD...the guy mentions in the description in the video that the audio only shutters due to how he recorded it <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmySoJxoaeQ" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmySoJxoaeQ</a>

Guys, come on. The Tegra X1 is struggling with Dolphin as-is, and it's about 4 times as powerful as the GPD XD, not to mention has the best graphics processor and driver support on the market. Do not expect any significant Dolphin compatibility from the GPD XD any time soon ever, unless you're planning on emulating some homebrew games.

I'm hoping GPD XD 2 will be as powerful as the SATV :D
