God of War 3

Uncharted 2, God of War 3, Metal Gear Solid 4 & more run faster on PC via the latest version of RPCS3

The RPCS3 team has released a new video, showcasing some of the improvements that it has implemented in the latest version of the Playstation 3 emulator. According to the team, Uncharted 2, God of War 3 and MGS 4 run faster now on the PC.

Going into more details, kd-11 rewrote RPCS3’s ZCULL implementation to improve scheduling efficiency. As the team noted, this resulted in a large performance uplift across many titles, especially in scenes with heavy culling. kd-11 also added a new setting to the advanced settings tab “Relaxed ZCULL Sync”. This new option changes the way zculling works.

As such, Red Dead Redemption and WipEout perform slightly better when Relaxed ZCULL Sync is active. Metal Gear Solid 4 also performs a lot better with this option.

Furthermore, WipEout is now playblae thanks to these performance improvements and some stability improvements by Eladash. Therefore, PC gamers can now enjoy this Playstation 3 exclusive game on the PC with higher resolutions.
