would a new gfx card boost frames even though its being bottle necked?
#1
okay so i have a amd athlon ii x2 235e dualcore 3.1ghz
i had an ati 4670 1gb and i had got about 70-105fps in tenkaichi 3
i went too a 5770 and am getting 90to 120fps
how is this? i thought for sure my cpu would bottle neck it.

although i looked at a chart saying that it could out preform an old intel core2quad at 2.1ghz

and yes i know that pcsx2 only reads 2 cores
im just comparing my cpu too a core2quad


im asking because i was woundering if getting an nvidia 460 would make an even bigger difference

Depends on the game and scene.
You get over full speed anyway so I don't think it counts as bottlenecking really ;p

Check the EE/GS% numbers in the game window of the latest beta, if neither reaches 90%+ or the GS is the one reaching 90%+ all the time it's probably still the graphics card, if EE% is the one reaching 90+ all the time then it's the CPU.

well i never reached 90+ in GS (probably 30 or a litile bit higher ) but in EE that's a different story it always reach 90+ (because of my CPU : 2 cores 2.1 ghz in short )

Again... it depends on the game/scene.

they seem equal most of the time, both dont go above 70%

ill try turning the frame rate limiter off...
......
okay my gs is slightly lower than my ee now during a battle

ee stays around 55-62%, when booting up the emulator it goes to 88-91%

gs stays around 58-68% once in a while it drops too the 40s
this card is overclocked though

its stock is 800mhzgpu
1200mhz memory

right now its at
810mhz gpu
and
1240mhz memory

ive also got the game in 1080p

im getting 72-90fps
in the older emulator i always stayed above 100 fps
and got 70-90fps if i went too a resolution of 2056x2056

If neither EE/GS hit 90+ is probably too high resolution so try lowering or simply enabling the "native" opption, enabling/disabling the "Allow 8-bit textures" option may help too.
