Mario Kart 8, Running At 4K

Illustration for article titled iMario Kart 8/i, Running At 4K

In October 2015, the CEMU emulator could barely run Mario Kart 8 on a PC at all. Now it can play the game in 8K.

The specs Will was running the game (at 32840x2160) on included an i7-6700k processor and a GTX 1080 Ti.


UPDATE: Corrected ability of YouTube to display 8K videos.
