GSDX and ATI?
#1
Hey everyone. I'm using this amazing program to run my WWE games on my E5200@3ghz and HD3850. My question is, does gsdx really has performance problems with ATI cards? And if so, just how much performance I'm actually losing?
Anyway I'll take this chance to thank the staff for this amazing emulator. I never thought I'd be able to run Smackdown vs Raw games close to full speed on my pc. Smile

I think there's only a problem with some of the HD4*** series, not in HD3***.

If GSdx is not reporting above 90% "cpu" usage in its' bar,you are not limited by your graphics card. I think the gsdx problem is mainly in 2D scenes where ATI cards simply get about 1/3 of the FPS their Nvidia counterparts have.

I play 2D games(ATLUS) in my laptop and Desktop both use ATI. I am wondering what games does the 1/3 speed impact affect. I didn't notice it when I play them.

I don't seem to be affected by this.

I Think this is still isu, some people with ATI Card doesnt have a problem with GSDX but in other side, some people have problem. example for FFXII game had a problem fps with HD.4670 but for me (I have HD3870) doesnt have a single isu with gsdx plugin in this game. I think the problem is related to drivers or in system windows settings or software isu and not in Hardware Smile.

I've got an HD4850. Never experienced this issue with any of my games so far.

Maybe because your CPU is fast enough
