My emulator is getting below 20fps
#1
I'm trying really hard to get Tales of Destiny DC to work
on 0.9.8 using latest SPU2-X 2.0 and GSDX SSSE2 but my emulator is constantly playing at under 15fps sometimes under 10fps.

I don't understand because
my specs SHOULD be good enough considering that it actually ran flawlessly at one point for ar tonelico.

i7-740QM Processor (6M cache, 1.73 GHz)
ATI Radeon™ HD 5850
4GB RAM

Anyone with similar specs who can actually run normally can help me with this? Or better yet, can ANYONE help me?

Read this topic (especially the Recommended section) before saying that. I do not think you already read it.

Okay so apparently maybe my CPU is burning out? Despite that i have been using it less than a year and it actually worked perfectly before? Would this be the case? If so then i think im going to go CPU shopping for the holidays XD Or earlier

Games can play great at logos, intros and menus,
but in-game can be a whole other situation.

Your processor is of a good type, but the clockrates are slow in general for PCSX2. It can only push as much as 2.53Ghz on 2 cores, but using anymore will leave it at a very low rate.

You should be using the SSE4 GS plugin that your processor supports.
What do the EE% and GS% say when the game is slow?

It still works perfectly as it did before. The problem is that it is not enough for PCSX2. PCSX2 requires a Core i3 @ 3.2 Ghz or an i5/i7 @ 2.66 Ghz which is able to boost to 3.2 Ghz. Your CPU is only more than half of the requirement, not to mention it is a mobile version, which is always slower than the desktop counterpart.

And I do not trust the TurboBoost much after all, especially on laptop. The 740 QM can surely reach 70 degree Celcius in normal load.

The EE% is like maxing out while the GS% is very low. Although at the "3d" section at the very beginning of the game makes it so that EE% is at half and GS% is maxing out

EE or GS at 100% indicates that your CPU is not powerful enough.

Well my laptop being a m15x, i can replace my current CPU with a better one. Any recommendations?

For GS Speed,
enable the frameskip. set it to constant and 1, 2. or 2, 2.
Set the EE Cycle rate to 2. and use the MTVU Hack.

Also, Mind overclockng the CPU a bit. 1.73Ghz is always low for PCSX2.
