Can anyone recommend a game for me to really test the performance of my new Core i7 running PCSX2? I had been playing (and will soon finish) Persona 3 and on my new hardware I am able to run the emulator with all speed hacks off and GSDX in DX10 software mode (5 threads) and still get no lower than 55 fps.
Shadow of the Colossus is easy (just use the Vu Cycle Stealer hack). Try Xenosaga Episode I and you'll see what a demanding game is. Good luck.

Need for speed games are very poorly optimized, might be because they are ported and the programmers didn't care as long as it ran.
MGS3 is also a *****, in the intro, the game itself is better.
However, I suppose ANY game is CPU demanding when you run it in software mode...
Tekken5 seem i get around 60fps-50fps to me in directx.10 mode.
