25% on a Yoga 720
Hi all. I am using pcsx2 1.6.0-0 on Gentoo. This is the spec readout in pcsx2:

Host Machine Init:
    Operating System =  Linux 5.8.7-gentoo x86_64
    Physical RAM    =  7686 MB
    CPU name        =  Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8250U CPU @ 1.60GHz
    Vendor/Model    =  GenuineIntel (stepping 0A)
    CPU speed        =  1.798 ghz (4 logical threads)
    x86PType        =  Standard OEM
    x86Flags        =  bfebfbff 7ffafbbf
    x86EFlags        =  2c100000

I tried running the original Ratchet & Clank, but the cutscenes and gameplay gets throttled to ~25%. I would think that my laptop is powerful enough to handle emulating ps2 games, but maybe this was a bad assumption? Is there anything you guys can suggest to get emulation to 100% speed?

Well you chose a rather heavy game to play and additionally I guess that laptop has a crappy onboard GPU, so I'd say that makes sense...

So is there nothing I can try? Do I just have to chalk this up as a loss?
You can try adding a good GPU to your laptop, but it's going to be expensive...
