Geneva 2017: Porsche 911 GT3 type 991.2

The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

The footage below is from Breath of the Wild running through the CemU Wii U emulator, using an i7-4790K CPU, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 and 8GB of RAM (speeds not mentioned). That figure falls way short of the Wii's 105k and the 3DS's 113k, but is double what the Wii U managed - a mere 40k.
