GS: GSdx 5875 (MSVC 18.00, SSE41) 0.1.16 [gsdx32-sse4-r 5873]
Renderer: Direct3D11 (Hardware),
Interlacing:None
D3D Internal Resolution: 2x Native
Texture Flitering: Check
Extra Rendering Threads: 4
Edge AA: Check

EE/IOP: Preset
VUs: Preset

as you are on a laptop make sure of a few things

1. Make sure your laptop is using the 660m and not the intel graphics when running pcsx2 (i think this is done in the nvidia control panel)
2. Your windows power profile is set to Maximum Performance (obviously make sure you are plugged in to the mains power)
3. You are using the laptop on a cool surface so it doesn't get too hot.

Thank you for the quick response.

I make sure to do all 3 of those things.
For 1, I can change it from the pcsx video properties menu.
2 & 3: I always do when I game.

Now what about tweeking the PCSX Configuration?

I would disable the EE Cycle and VU Cycle hacks if your computer is capable at running at reasonable speeds. Need to know more info about your CPU really, is it a dual core or a quad core cpu?

I have a Quad core.

you could also enable MTVU hack then. some games might slow down becuase of this hack so, be cautious.

maybe some game's hate the duplication of the VIF1 ? (or) it might be a slowdown because of the extra work needed for the sync. just check out whether it speeds up or not. Smile

ssakash: He said that he has that on in the OP
Is it really a quad core? or is it a dual core with hyperthreading? we need a real model name.

Its Alienware M17XR4.
I am pretty sure its Quad Core.

Yes it's a quadcore. With HT it can use up to 8 threads (but probably not for pcsx2). MTVu is therefore a good choice for many games.
