Hi I am having low FPS in all games I play on PCSX2 (MGS3, Colosseum, Shadow of Colossus, FFX). I usually get around 30-40 FPS in those games, and my hardware is that I have 8 GB of RAM, an i7 processor (2.80ghz, quad core, I think,) and an ATI Radeon HD 5870. I don't think I should be getting such low speeds. If there is any way to increase my FPS, please let me know
2.8 ghz is ok for FFX, a bit slow for SotC and too slow for MGS3
mind to share your pcsx2 config, version, plugins settings, etc ???
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go
even in FFX??? I have much lower specs than you and I am getting full speed in FFX. Try setting your resolution to Native in GS plugin, and enabling speed hacks, but before you even do that check in Control Panel (of your computer) >> System and Security>> Power Options and make sure it's set to High Performance. Then click on Change Plan Settings >> Change Advanced Power Settings and scroll down and click on plus sign next to "Processor Power Management" . Make sure that both the Minimum and maximum Processor State is set to 100%. I ususally forget to set it to High Performance so the processor runs at half speed, thus slowing down emulation. But with your specs you should definitely get full speed on FFX at least. I don't know about the other games though, never played them...

Sapphire Radeon HD7870XT 2GB GDDR5 RAM

Nevermind, I reinstalled PCSX2 and enabled only speedhacks, didn't mess with anything else, and I am running things from 100-200 FPS with framelimiter off.
well make the resolution higher ( x2 native should be fine )
