Hi all, ok so I am looking at doing a RetroArch build, namely as a backup for my collection and to try games I may look at getting. What I mean is, that I have a large collection, but the consoles I have for it are getting old and parts are getting harder to find. So to make them last longer I am looking to do a RetroArch build for me to game on.
So with that all said, I am running into issue in my research on what hardware to use and OS. I understand that most emulators are optimised for Single Thread use, which means my best bet on stability and stutter/lag free playing is an ARM or RISC CPU build. Sadly that is the furthest I have gotten. If Possible I want to keep this Open Source for OS I use, but I am finding conflicting information on that front when dealing with what Cores I can use for Emulation and stability.
My next set of questions is, will RetroArch work on Powerpc hardware or RISC-V hardware, or am I locked-in on using ARM and x86/x86-64? What about the Tegra TX2 boards? I ask because with this build I am looking to build a full powered machine that can run all the Cores.
Thanks for your time, I hope this post is not a mess to work with.
