Hello. Sorry for rising this from the graveyard but there are plenty of posts about pcsx2 and ZoE (1 & 2) and I did not wanted to make another one (hope I did well ...)
I read a lot of different things about this game and the configuration needed to get it work with pcsx2.
So far I'm getting a bit confused and I hope that someone can help me to clarify the situation.
I currently have an AMD Athlon X2 340 (and this crappy CPU is just able to provide 24fps even with speed hacks). That's why I will change. But ...
But You can see here :
That it is possible to run (quite smoothly) ZoE2 with a Core 2 Quad Q9550. Other people pretend that without (at least) an i5, the game won't run @ full speed (wiki).
So, currently my motherboard is able to take FM2 and FM2+ CPU and if I can avoid avoid buying a new mother board that would be great.
Here is my question :
The Intel Q9550 gets a 4073 CPU Mark score (http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?id=1049
The AMD A8-6600K gets a 4686 CPU Mark score (http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?id=1946
So if the game can run on the Q9550 like this, do I really need an i5 or can I just get the A8 and expect the same result (with some speed hacks if necessary) ?
BTW, concerning the GPU, it's a R7 250 1Gb DDR5 (I think this is ok so far).
Any clue would be really helpful thx :-)
PS : As you might noticed English is not my mother tong, sorry if I wrote something wrong :-S
