Suggestions PCSX2

You could use more RAM, not to use much of the processor.
Could also provide support for the AMD MMX2.Smile

RAM: 3600Gbs DDR 800

The first suggestion from a real life perspective is impossible. Its like asking you to breathe less but run faster, it just wont happen.

As for the second option, MMX2 will be used IF there is a use found for it and is justified, however we mostly stick to SSE standards which are available on every processor (gsdx is the only part which uses an Intel only instruction set in the SSSE3 build) This way the program is in no way biased to one set of computers, is easier to maintain and ensures all around compatability.

What for? Use more ram, is there can make some advantage with performance? I think no. For that cpu feature you already got answer, that isnt worth to gain some advantage. For best result for pcsx2 emulation is with using more core than dualcore in hardware.

You have no idea. Tongue

Pcsx2 already does gruesome amounts of internal lookup tables and inlined code compilations -- to the tune of ~210-300 megs of base memory. That's in order to emulate a system with about 48megs of mappable ram TOTAL (including co-processors like the GS and VUs, etc).

So yeah, we're already doing a rather healthy amount of ram "expansion." Wink
