Vu flush to zero
#1
heey...sry I'm sure this insults the intelligence of many of you here, but can someone explain to me exactly what VU FLUSH TO ZERO is, and where it can be found? I'm at a loss here.. Blush

AFAIK what it means is the CPU will simply flush values of floating point operations to zero if they'd require higher precision than the CPU's full precision can represent. So basically if an underflow occures, no further calculation is performed and a zero is returned instead since the value is very close to zero anyway.

That's how I interpret the information I could find on it, no idea if it's correct.

thank you!

PS: this just a little aside, but can anyone confirm that Persona 4 (if you've played it) gets an FPS boost by enabling this option?

@antipunt
anyway you won't get any slow down, so unless you are encountering problems , just enable it (and denormals are zero too)

official build's have flush to zero ON by default; we made it OFF by default to increase compatibility (even though it might be slower)

as already mentioned, you can turn it on by going to "Advanced Options" and clicking the "Flush to Zero" checkbox for the VUs.
