yuzu is an open-source project, licensed under the GPLv2 (or any later version). Refer to the license document for more information.
yuzu is actively tested and supported on various 64-bit versions of Windows (7 and up) and Linux. macOS is no longer supported due to Apple deprecating OpenGL.
yuzu currently requires a OpenGL 4.5 capable GPU and a CPU that has high single core performance. It also requires a minimum of 8 GB of RAM.
