Every game has a slow framerate for me
#1
I can't seem to figure out how to make games run smoothly. I believe my specs are more than good enough.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T (6 cores) oc'd to 3.9ghz
GPU: 2 x Ati 5770s (crossfired) also overclocked
RAM: 8GB 1600mhz ddr3

I install PCSX2, do the beginning wizard, and then when I try either of my games (kingdom hearts and shadow of the colossus) the framerates are unbearably bad, like around 15-20 fps.

I know this is probably way too general to be of any use but I just don't even know where to begin.

Thanks in advance for helping a n00b out.

Have you enabled Speedhacks? Tried native resolution?

Post what version/settings/plugins you are using. With that rig you should get fullspeed in most playable games especially simple games like kingdom hearts.

I haven't had much success with the speed hacks. But there are a lot of them and it can be pretty confusing. Any tips for which to enable and things?

Oh and yes I tried native res

I am using version 0.9.7 r3878.

There are a ton of settings...
EE: Recompiler
IOP: Recompiler
EE/FPU Advanced -
Round mode: Chop / zero
Clamping mode: Normal
Flush to zero: Checked
Denormals are zero: Checked
VU0: microVU recompiler
VU1: microVU recompiler
VU0/VU1 avanced: all the same as EE/EPU advanced
Everything is disabled in GS settings

My plugins are:
GS: GSdx 3693 SSE2 (Because for apparently SSE3/4 aren't compatible with AMD chips?)
SPU2: SPU2-X r3702m 1.4.0

Anything else you need just ask.

Thanks so much for the help and the quick replies.

it really is disappointing that top of the line 6 core cpu doesn't support sse4, theres actually significant difference in performance between sse2 and sse4, the difference between ssse3 and sse4 isnt as big, but i dont think phenom has ssse3 either, still you should be getting better speeds than you are since youre oc to 3.9Ghz, and really when running pcsx2 youre only using 2 of those 6 cores so its really all about clock speed and cpu architecture

shadow of the collosus is one of the more heavy games so dont bother with that (yet)

kingdom hearts on the other hand... should run fine with the rig.

try disabling the crossfire in ati catalist. that can cause some troubles for pcsx2.

also go to the graphics plugin and set it to the highest dx you can get (either dx9 or 11 depents on the windows you have)

i have 5770s crossfire too and i can tell you for sure that crossfire doesnt cause any problems for pcsx2, second card just scales very badly so basically youre running on single card

@op,

running it in hardware or software mode?

Which cards did you have crossfired ? older models like 4xxx and 3xxx didnt work well in crossfire, 5xxx and 6xxx cards scale a lot better and many crossfire bugs have been eliminated, i have exactly the same gpus and as long as his drivers are updated the crossfire wont cause any slowdowns in pcsx2
