The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom emulated in 8K and 60 FPS on PC

The now limited hardware of the Switch console has been reached and surpassed by today’s PCs, so much so that it is able to emulate the most recent games without great difficulty, and certainly the last chapter of the Zelda saga could not be missing .


Yes, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom can be run on PC through the Yuzu emulator avoiding all the hardware limitations of the hybrid console.

The downside is that in order to reach such high resolutions you need a high-performance PC, the video posted by a user on YouTube would show the game running at a very high resolution, in 8K at 60 frames per second.

The hardware components used in the video would seem very expensive, starting from the Intel Core i9-13900k 5.8ghz lga1700 processor which costs around 600 euros on Amazon .

Without forgetting the GPU, the nVidia GeForce RTX 4080 – Founders Edition graphics card on Amazon would cost over 1500 euros, to which must also be added the memory, two 32 GB modules each for a total of 64 GB of the G. Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4 4000MHz .

  • Operating system: Windows 11 Pro

Meanwhile, Nintendo continues its fight against piracy and emulation, while we don’t know if it will take action on the video posted on the YouTube platform.
