It’s a private project being worked on by one of the original developers of RPCS3, DH, and it is still being worked on although it is in early stages.

RPCS4’s first public demo was the first to launch Play Station 4 commercial games.

It recompiles all the shaders, untiling all the textures and upload all the buffers every frame, making it less efficient.

All information is obtained via reverse engineering of legally purchased devices and games and information made public on the internet.

Releases are currently tested by YAXOD team on desktop computer with:

  • GPU: Nvidia GTX970
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 with octa-core 3.0 GHz
  • RAM: 12 GB

It uses OpenGL, Vulkan and DirectX 12 as its back-end API renderers and runs most of the PS4 exclusives on high-end machines with some glitches as it is still in beta.
