Cannot go above 30-35 fps on Dirge Of Ceberus: FF VII
#1
Heyo, just put together a pretty nice new machine but still can't get full fps on this game (in fact there's only a 2-3 fps boost on this new machine relative to my last test)
Specs:
Arch Linux (kernel 3.13.0-2 x86_64)
GPU: NVIDIA GK107 GeForce GTX 650
CPU: AMD FX-6300 hex core cpu (clocked at 3.7ghz/core)
Ram: 4gb (yeah, I know XD)
PCSX2: 1.1.0.5854 (compiled via aur)
any tips?
Tried with agressive speedhacks and various GSdx settings (SSE2)
hardware, software, that new hack that lets you use a third core... nothing.
OS: Arch Linux x86_64 (linux-ck-bulldozer 3.12.10-2) dual boot with Win7 Ultimate x86_64
Motherboard: MSI 970A-G46 (MS-7693) UEFI
CPU: AMD FX-6300 hex-core @ 3.5ghz
GPU: NVIDIA GK107 [GeForce GTX 650] w/ up to date drivers linux and windows
RAM: 6GB DDR3 1600mhz
Gamepads: 4 DS3 pads connected via bluetooth linux and windows

Pretty weak Cpu... And you should be able to support higher than SSE2 shouldn't you? I would be surprised if you couldn't use the AVX version

the fx series does support avx including the cpu listed in the specs try AVX and report back to us if you see an improvementSmile

Use software mode and set extra rendering threads to 3.

Well that's just it, I compiled from source code and that version of the GSdx plugin is all I see. Is there somewhere I can get the other ones, then?
Will try on the software mode too, and hey, I built this machine for under $500 so I'm fairly happy with it, I'd just like to play an old favorite with decent speed Tongue

GSdx is constantly being updated. The latest one for Linux is typically the best unless the gpu driver is bad causing a crash. AVX is not available for Linux version. No your cpu is not that weak (it's not superior either, as I will attest in my sig below), but some games just will not run correctly on linux version. You can possible try ZZogl (quite old) an make sure you use proprietary Nvidia gpu driver.

I'ma see about clocking them up a bit, box says they can hit 4.1ghz. And yes, I'm using the proprietery drivers (NVIDIA, y u no open source?!)

nvidia has the nouveau driver as its open source alternative. they have some polish but not a lot of muscle for speed purposes.

Are you compiling it completely by yourself or are you using the installation routine by gregory.hainaut?

Yeah, I'm aware of nouveau, but I'm told its less than ideal for minecraft and other 3d games.
I'm using the AUR package; it's basically the same as a manual compilation (its a sort of shell script, basically), except the results get wrapped in a pacman package (just a tar.xz file) so it can be cleanly removed by the pacman package manager.
