Cemu is the world’s first functional experimental closed source Nintendo Wii U emulator written in Java, compatible with Android OS devices.
At this point Cemu emulator can already be considered highly optimized and possible future optimizations will only arrive in small and incremental steps.
Keep in mind that emulation always comes with overhead and requires a higher performance system than the emulated system.
For Cemu emulator, the single core performance of your CPU (and by extension RAM speed) is the most important factor for fullspeed emulation.
This emulator include also game pad support:
- Currently the DRC (GamePad), Pro Controller and Classic Controller is emulated
- Wiimotes are emulated as well (including native support)
- Keyboard input + USB controllers as input devices are supported
- GamePad touch input can be controlled via left mouse click
- Gyro functionality is emulated with limitations and can be controlled via right mouse button
