Cemu 1.7.0 Now Available for Backers, Adds Support for Customizable Graphics Packs

By   /   Jan 10, 2017

Cemu – Wii U emulator – has been updated to version 1.7.0 and is now available for backers who contributed at least $5 during the emulator’s development.

If you did not get a chance to donate earlier and want to get the latest version, you can do so by donating $5 USD now. Otherwise, you must wait until Jan. 16 when the updated version will become available for the public.

Cemu Version 1.7.0 Available for Backers

One of the most notable changes is the ability to customise graphics using a built-in graphics modding wrapper. This essentially allows users to customise and import custom graphics settings, enabling them to modify render output of the game based on their system specifications and outlook of the game.

In addition to this, the shader cache has been overhauled and a bug fix for one of the shader handlers. You can head over to the GBA Temp Forums to learn more about all the changes introduced with the new 1.7.0 update.

Depending upon your system specifications, you should be able to run Wii U games at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. You can check out the video running Xenoblade Chronicles X on 4K and 60 frames per second:

With Cemu now being able to run Wii U games on 4K and 60 FPS on a decent PC along with a variety of controller support that the platform offers, I would not be surprised if people start ditching Wii U in favour of getting Cemu on a PC.
