The latest RPCS3 build offers major performance improvements for various games, including Insomniac’s Ratchet & Clank series, and the original Resistance 1 and 2.

Last year’s patches for the original Resistance installments already offered some great performance improvements, but the two games are now fully playable at 60FPS in RPCS3. In addition, thanks to several fixes for long-standing issues within the emulator, the Ratchet and Clank PS3 games are now much more playable as well with only slight performance drops holding them back.

RPCS3 is a multi-platform open-source Sony PlayStation 3 emulator and debugger written in C++ for Windows, Linux and BSD. It was founded by programmers DH and Hykem. Initially hosted on Google Code, the project was eventually migrated to GitHub later on in its development. RPCS3's first successful boots were primarily composed of small homebrew projects and hardware tests. The emulator was later publicly released in June of 2012 and gained substantial attention from both the open-source community and PlayStation enthusiasts alike. Today, RPCS3 is primarily developed by its two lead developers; Nekotekina, kd-11 and backed by flourishing team of GitHub contributors.
