The team behind the best emulator for Playstation 3, RPCS3, announced that its latest version now supports high resolution rendering. This mode makes it possible to run games at ridiculously high resolutions. Currently, there are ten games that support this mode, and more will in the future.
The ten games that support it include Red Dead Redemption, Demon’s Souls and Persona 5. Not only that, but the emulator now offers native Anisotropic Filtering support. As such, distant textures will now look cleaner on RPCS3 thanks to it.
The emulator comes with two resolution options: Resolution and Resolution Scale. The resolution option should be set at 1280x720 for the majority of PS3 games. Players can then use the Resolution Scale in order to truly render a game at a higher resolution.
Needless to say that in order to render the games at 4K, you will need a high-end GPU. However, and if you have the raw power to achieve something like that, you can run PS3 games up to 10K resolutions.
Last but not least, the development team claimed that it will add custom anti-aliasing and texture scaling algorithms in newer versions of RPCS3. As such, we can expect to see even better visuals in the near future. Furthermore, the team will continue improving the emulator accuracy and general performance to enable more games to run.
