Specs Good Enough? Some Games Full Speed/Some Not
#1
Bug 
These are my laptop specs:

Sony Vaio CS290
Windows XP Home
Service Pack 3
Intel Core 2 Duo
3.06GHz T9900 Processor
3 GB Ram
79MB/s Seagate Momentus 7200rpm
795mhz
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD (Yeah yeah I know it blows)

I can run Digimon World 4 at full speed, about 58-62 fps
I have God Of War and the fmv sequences run at full speed.
The gameplay is a little less than full speed, around 53fps but playable.
I tried running Shadow Of The Colossus and I was only getting like 25 fps during the opening fmv sequence.
Final Fantasy 10 get's about 40 fps
I also have the PC version of Devil May Cry 4, which plays at full speed.
Downloaded Left 4 Dead as well and that runs full speed on low settings.

I'm using Pcsx2 rev 1474
Which seems to be running faster than 0.9.6

My settings for the Pcsx2 rev 1474 are:

GRAPHICS:
GSDX 1462 (MSVC 15.00, SSE3) 0.1.15
Resolution: Windowed
Renderer: Direct 3D9 Hardware

Native CHECKED
Logarithmic z CHECKED
Alpha Correction CHECKED
Enable Output Merger Blur Effect CHECKED
Wait Vsync UNCHECKED
Texture Filtering GRAY BOX CHECKED, CAN'T CHANGE


BIOS:
v02.00 (14/06/2004)


CONTROLLER:

CPU CONFIG:
EERec CHECKED
VU0Rec CHECKED
VU1Rec CHECKED

Enable IOP x2 Cycle Rate UNCHECKED

Clamp Mode Normal CHECKED
Flush To Zero CHECKED
Denormals Are Zero CHECKED
VU RECS OPTIONS
Round Mode Nearest CHECKED
Clamp Mode Normal CHECKED

Denormals Are Zero CHECKED



Anything I can do to make this run faster?
Do I have to sell this laptop and get a new one with a better card, or are there ways to toggle these settings and make it run faster?
N64, PSP, Psx, X Box, and all other emulators run full speed.


THANKS A LOT!

Your GPU is crap and obviously the bottleneck here.

I guess latest beta would be better than rev1474

er... If you say so. But i don't see how it's related to PS2 emulation.

Well I know my graphics card is crap.
Is there any way to replace it, or do I have to buy a whole new laptop?
I mentioned being able to play pc games that take high end graphics cards, because well..I thought there was hope for my current card hahaha.
How come Digimon World 4 plays no problem, same with God Of War give or take 5 to 8 fps loss?

No there is no way to fix the intel onboard graphics of your motherboard.

It varies from game to game, some make more use of effects that require a good video card, others don't.
