MiSTer won't cope with those existing front ends because there is no 3D engine. So it will always be sluggish and crappy when it will pretend to be that fancy front ends. On high resolutions it will be either very slow or low quality when some dynamic change is required. MiSTer don't need to pretend to be RPi or similar - it will start to play on RPi area where it will sucks a lot.
