Low CPU utilization
#1
Hi guys, I have a question about CPU utilization.


I have an Intel i3 2350m (2.3 ghz dual core) and an AMD 7670M. I know, it's a miracle I can emulate anything at all. I can emulate JRPGs, but I get slowdowns periodically. The thing is, even in Star Ocean, CPU utilization never goes over 40%. I know that even at 100% utilization my CPU is weak, but I'm wondering if having better utilization would help with the slowdowns? They occur both in Directx11 hardware and OpenGl modes.

So is there a way to increase the CPU utilization, maybe I'm doing something wrong?

did you set your power plan to high performance ?

Yes. I even changed the priority to realtime in the task manager.

did you try to monitor your temps while playing ?
your CPU may be throttling down because of overheating. it's very common on laptops.

Well, the slowdowns start occuring after 1 minute of playing, I doubt that the CPU can get so hot as to throttle down so quickly. But it's possible, I'll look into it. I thought that there may be something I can do via PCSX2 itself to increase the utilization.

apart from increasinf the numbre of extra sw rendering threads, no.
And it'll work only in software mode.
