Minimum data transfer rate in PCSX2
#1
I was wondering what the minimum data transfer rate for a disc/ISO in PCSX2 is.
I currently have most of my games on ECO/Green (the "slow kind")HDD's, which runs games fine, but what will happen if I use a really slow and old CD drive ?
Will it affect gameplay or loading times ?

any hard drive will be faster than any cd/dvd/bdrom drive out there. CD Drives with emulation are generally extremely slow and pause the emulation while its reading causing bad framerates, so it's recommended you use iso's

Well, the CD-thing was just an example.Smile
What I want to know is how a really slow transfer will affect the game.

4xDVD=5.25MB/s
24x CD=450KB/s
With caching you could probably play them off the cloud.

The PS2 drive would very rarely achieve maximum read speeds, too.
On average you'll get maybe 2MB/s for streaming loads and lots less for random file loads.
