Description

I have noticed alot of users have been having performance issues and a lot of these are resolved by swapping the backend to Vulkan.

Given this, would it be wise to have the default Backend as Vulkan as opposed to OpenGL?

Maybe there is a good reason it is OpenGL, happy for this to be closed if this is the case.

History

#1 Updated by JosJuice 5 months ago

A problem with Vulkan is that it doesn't work on all computers, unlike OpenGL, which works on nearly anything (except computers that are too old to support Vulkan anyway, and Windows 10 on ARM, which also doesn't support Vulkan). Having Dolphin not work at all with the default settings for some people is worse than having the performance be a little lower than it could be, at least in my opinion.

Is dolphin OS aware? Or hardware aware? This could be used to direct initial configuration. Just a thought, I know this is quality of life and would certainly exsist as a low priority/severity.
