What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

The game has severe FPS drops. Sometimes all the way down to 0.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Start the game and choose episode 1.
Walk over to the Whack-Da-Ratz" mingame in the first room and start shooting some rats.

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

Yes. 5.0-11827

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

Yes

If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version? (You can find the first broken version by bisecting. Windows users can use the tool https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-green-notice-development-thread-unofficial-dolphin-bisection-tool-for-finding-broken-builds and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)

[First broken version number here (if applicable)]

If your issue is a graphical issue, please attach screenshots and record a three frame fifolog of the issue if possible. Screenshots showing what it is supposed to look like from either console or older builds of Dolphin will help too. For more information on how to use the fifoplayer, please check here: https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=FifoPlayer

[Attach any fifologs if possible, write a description of fifologs and screenshots here to assist people unfamiliar with the game.]

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

Operating System: Windows 10 x64
Processor/CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K
Video Card/GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
Memory/RAM: Unknown/16GB

Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)

I came into this expecting to reject it as some kind of stupid performance issue, but no. This is legitimate and strange.

Seems to be tied to the Freeing of Sound Memory being much slower than console? You can improve the delays by HEAVILY overclocking the emulated CPU, but even that doesn't remove them. Something is broken.
