CEMU 1.17.2 will be available to everyone tomorrow, brings multicore & performance improvements

The team behind the amazing Nintendo Wii U emulator, CEMU, will release a brand new version of it tomorrow. CEMU 1.17.2 brings major multicore & performance improvements. As such, players can expect to be running a variety of games faster than ever.

According to the release notes, CEMU 1.17.2 fixes an issue where the game list would display updates/dlc instead of the base game, if no base game was found. It also fixes a rare crash that could occur in any game due to a hash collision in the pipeline runtime cache.

It’s also worth noting that this new version of CEMU overhauls MP task queue API. It also fixes several race conditions which could lead to deadlocks in multi-core recompiler mode.

Below you can find the complete changelog for CEMU 1.17.2. I’ve also included some videos showing a number of WiiU games running on it.
