    If they manage to improve performance in current hardware then even better.
    oh yeah improvement for sure. But devices today are already capable of emulating a lot of x86 games and getting a playable experience

    no need to, the rpi5 cpu is perfectly adequate for older titles. For instance this is Farcry being emulated (Winlator is a proot environment running wine and box86 iirc) at 20-60fps on the original asus ROG phone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRzHFCFveoE

    The phone is still pretty decent don't get me wrong, but farcry was still a harder to run title in the first place

    yup, I predict that will still be an issue with rpi5, but hopefully not too much one one if you OC the gpu a bit. now modern socs and phones can even play GTA5 at 20-30fps. I really wish we had some qualcomm socs T.T

    The problem isn't that the CPU can't run it. It's that it has to be done through emulation. Unless you want to emulate enough of android to run the android farcry binary, you're stuck emulating x86. This is going to be the case for virtually all games in VALVe's steam library, which is 100% x86. FEX's JIT might offer reasonable perf, but this isn't assured.
    RPi4 is capable of running some old x86 games on Wine with box32, RPi5 is much faster so it will be capable of running newer and heavier games.

    I was talking about emulating x86 far cry on old android devices. I didn't even know farcry was ported to android

    The RPI5 will be powerful enough for some more simpler dx9 games. Farcry 1 would probably work fine, I remeber playing it on some older android devices. The cpu itself is probably fast enough to play something like hat in time. the gpu, I don't really know. it's hard to say with the vulkan driver in the state it currently is, and I dont actually have a device for testing​
