testing switch emulation on my m1 mac mini

I have a Switch Lite - Turquoise, but I didn't bring it back from India this time. I was curious to see if my M1 Mac mini (base model) could handle emulating Switch games with Ryujinx.

Setting up Ryujinx was dead simple. I tried running Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The games played great, usually locking to 60 FPS, though it may occasionally drop to build shaders.

The only downside is that my Mac mini has limited storage as the base model. I may need to offload some games to an external SSD to free up space. Another option would be to get an adapter to connect an external NVMe or M.2 SATA SSD to boost storage capacity. I plan to keep testing more games to see how well Ryujinx performs.
