It's a modern experimental PlayStation 1 emulator which focuses on relatively modern hardware (2010+) and non-legacy OSes. Avocado is currently single-threaded, so single thread performance is what really matters since multi-core won't bring much benefit. Also, it currently requires OpenGL 3.2 but will be lifted once software rendering is supported.

Note: It requires a real console BIOS and has to be stored in the data/bios directory.


Windows: 7+

MacOS: 10.13+ 

Linux: Nothing repoted

GPU: Graphics card supporting OpenGL 3.2+

CPU: SSE3 compatible (CPUs after 2004) x64 or x86 processor
