PCSX2 slow on windows 7 and faster on Vista
#1
Ok, yesterday I installed Windows 7 RC ... so I decided to see how PCSX2 runs on this ... and for my surprise my FPS drops by 5-6, I tried the same config I was using on Vista, maybe I forgot to do something or maybe you guys have a "TRICK", I dont know ... my machine isnt that powerfull :
DualCore @ 2.2Ghz
Geforce 9500GT
so I need those extra 6 FPS
i WAS playing Valkyrie profile 2 @ constant 40 - 42 in battle - now im getting 30-32 so it isnt enjoyable anymore TT_TT
the funny thing is when I run a normal PC game (Devil may cry 4 for the FPS test XD) I actually GAIN those 5-6 FPS I lost in PCSX2 ....
my PCSX2 config:

pcsx2 beta 1474
gsdx 1538 SSSE3 (allow8bits, native on, wait vsync off, DX10)
SPU2-X 1.1.0 (disable effects processing, disable audio expansion, latency 67 ms)
lilypad r1388 on both
CPU=> limit

hacks:
X2 cycle rate
INT sync hack
IOP x2 cycle rate
IDLE loop fast forward
VU cycle stealing => slight speed up

thank you

Geez! Once I installed Windows 7 7269 x64 near RC, FPS dropped significantly on Mana Khemia Compared to Vista Home Basic x86 I vlited with the same configuration of PCSX2.

Let's go revert Vista already.

Changing anything on your computer is bound to have an impact on PCSX2 speeds. Changing an operating system is even MORE likely to change something major. Windows 7 RC is still not a final operating system, which adds an entirely different layer of things that could go wrong.

In short, don't blame things on an OS that's essentially still in beta.

Oh, and disable aero or try playing in fullscreen, might fix it.
I went from xp over vista to win7, and none of these os's had inherently better/worse performance in pcsx2.

In order to gain the same PCSX2 speed for Windows 7 as vlited Vista.

Gotta
1) Disable all Windows features even including IE8 (thus use Firefox)
2) Disable unnecessary Services.
3) Disable Visual Effect.
4) Change Power plan to High Performance.
5) Disable or Remove system components via Control Panel of large icons (classic view) as much as you can as long as they are useless to PCSX2.

Tested Windows 7 Home Premium x86 versus vLited Vista Home Basic SP2 x86 with Dragon Quest 8 NTSC-US. no evolution in speed on GSDX10; a less than 1FPS improvement on win 7 on GSDX9.

BTW, as I open a post, I can tell DQ8-US is faster on GSDX9 than GSDX10 with pcsx2-r1569 and GSdx-SSE4-r1564.

Haven't tested win 7 home basic and starter that out of retail market. cuz an annoying CRT low refresh rate issue happened on win 7 need hardware modification to resolved, I haven't decided to perform that surgery thus further test is suspending.

The best solution there is is to get Windows 7 7600RTM....The previous RC-s were very badly optimized...
