you need to put the Dual Core Optimizer on your computer, AMD dual cores and notorious for core desync. Google it and grab it, should be on the AMD site.

Seeing as he's running Vista, I wouldn't be so sure. I do need the Dual Core Optimizer under XP, but under 7 RC, everything's running fine without it.

it has nothing to do with which version of windows you are using. PCSX2 is using the one command which is a problem for the processors, the windows vista or 7 api might get round this when system calls are used by using an alternate method, so it isnt an issue in most things. However PCSX2 does everything at low level, bypassing the windows API, so it more than likely nullifies the effect of windows.

Interesting. Maybe I'll install it under Windows 7 RC to see if I get more performance.

Also, latest builds of Pcsx2 SVN should have this fixed regardless. I added thread affinity locking for the cpuspeed checker, which should avoid pitfalls of cpu desync regardless of AMD's core optimizer or operating system.
