That's a scene where GS thread usage is low so there's enough room for the VU thread too, other scenes where it's higher you will see a lower speedup in a dual core and might even get slowdowns instead.

i recently beat gow2 using the MTVU speedhack.
it basically made the game playable for me with my 2.7ghz q6600 (using the 2 recommended EE speedhacks, and the 2 other mVU speedhacks).
i didn't get full speed all the time but the game ran fast enough to make the game enjoyable.

8-bit texture option in gsdx also gave me a bit of a speedup (although this same option slows down gow1 for me).
i think the game was always a speedup with MTVU on my quadcore; on dual cores i imagine MTVU can be a slowdown in some GS heavy scenes like shadowlady said.

i could get huge fps gains by using VU cycle stealing + MTVU. but VU cycle stealing causes occasional garbage in GOW2, and also makes the game animation un-smooth. i instead found it nicer to play w/o the VU cycle stealing hack so i could get smooth animation.

This sounds like I have to get a newer version of the SVN to test this out with something like MGS3.

The biggest slowdowns in MGS3 are due to the GS plugin in cutscenes and in that case you won't see speedups (actually might get slowdowns in dual core), should get speedups ingame tho (but it's already pretty fast there Tongue2).

Really, I had the opposite happen to me in MGS3 (Slowdown in game vs in Cut scenes) I wasn't going to make a topic about it because everyone knows how slow any scene with water is. Setting VU Cycle Stealing fixes the cut scenes for me really well.

on my quad, i get huge speedgains in-game in mgs3 where you're moving through the grass. from 20~45% speedup.
i didn't really test further in the game; the beginning cutscene i think was also a speedup.
