Yeah, they would run pcsx2 fine for the most part. Obviously some games won't run in hd or will run a little slow. If I were to get one, it would have to be the first one, as I would 256GB of hdd space really quick. It also has a faster cpu.

Thx for reply

Both get up to 3.8Ghz and 3.4Ghz, this isn't enough to run on maximum settings on 1080p (or even 900p)?

Some games have compatibility issues.


If you could list the games you want to play I could probably tell you if they'll work.

Im aware some games dont run 100%, but I think it may be related to the emulator itself and not lack of "gunpower".

I wish to play games that doesnt have HD reissues like FF12, Odin Sphere, God Hand, Castlevania's, RE Outbreak's, Fatal Frame, etc.

There isn't a laptop CPU out there that is capable of running PCSX2 at full speed in every game, or desktop CPU for that matter.

But as far as laptop CPU's go, you'll be getting the best available.
System:
Corsair Obsidian 450D
Asus Maximus VII Z97 Hero
Intel 4690K (@4.6Ghz)
8GB 2400Mhz DDR3
Asus Nvidia 970 Strix x2 SLI
256GB Crucial SSD
2TB 7200 Seagate
3TB 7200 Seagate
Superflower 650w Gold Psu

3.5GHz, not 3.8

I have a very fat gaming laptop with very good cooling and mine, while gaming, will stay at 3.5 GHz more or less (mine is a 4800MQ rated at 2.7 or 3.7 with TurboBoost and I have a 770m so similar laptop power).

Judging from that yours, with the same cooling, could stay at 3.3 or 3.2 GHz BUT as you are buying an ultra-thin one it's probable your cooling will not suffice to do that and you circle around the 3 GHz, little more or less depending on external temp; I need VU cycle stealing set on 1 already with my laptop to play Shadow of the Colossus without slowdowns so yours will need to cool it down a little; appart from that most games will play fine, I can play GT4 with 3x scaling with my 770m without slowdowns (at least noticeable) even in 2-player mode.

I would still get the first one, that 0.1GHz difference is minute but hey, in the words of wise Tesco, Every Little Helps!

Thx for reply, nice to read a laptop gamer toughts

Indeed cooling on thin laptops are a weak point, do you play with all settings on high?? What is your overall fps?

About scale/resolution wouldnt to be better set it to 1920x1080 (laptop resolution)?
If you set it 3x (3x PS2 resolution) it means 1440~1536p, isnt this res unnecessary since laptop max res is 1080p?

Correct me if I'm wrong

3x native is actually just 1920x1344
