Any advice to get PCSX2 running more smoothly on a lower end PC?
#1
On my PC, PCSX2 runs at around 30-50% fps (during gameplay, cutscenes usually run at full or average speed) and the sound quality is pretty bad. Configuring PCSX2's emulation settings doesn't seem to work. I tried to arrange my settings in all sorts of ways but it seems to run the exact same no matter what. Do you figure I'd have to change something on my PC instead? Also my specs if you need them:
Intel® Celeron® CPU N3050 @ 1.60GHz, 1601 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)
4 GB of RAM
Please don't add anything to the discussion like 'just get a higher spec PC', I'm kind of tired of hearing that and it doesn't help me at all.

Sure it does! It helps you run PCSX2 more smoothly.

the single thread rating on that processor is 425. I'm honestly surprised you're eeking out 50%. I have slowdowns on my i5 7200u laptop with an stp of 1500. Blyss, and most of the other coders, recommend a minimum of 1600 to run most games.

Your processor is quite simply not strong enough to run the emu. It isn't what you want to hear, but it is the facts of the situation. You'll have to improve the single threaded performance of your laptop to be able to use the emu.. No amount of overclocking, no amount of tweaking is going to get you to a smooth 60 fps...

Like i said, you dont want to hear my answer.

Shopping around for a different answer isnt going to change that your cpu is not up to the task. Best of luck, but for now.. your best bet is to continue playing your games on your ps2.

I can't even get full speed with my pc on demanding graphics. Have u try running pcsx2 at lower resoulation (640/480) ? You might want to try out ps1 emulator if you own a ps1 & games. Blink

Your CPU is fine, but you'd greatly benefit by upgrading your graphics card.  With my rig, I have no problem playing any of my ps2 games with this emulator.  Even the more demanding games run just fine with 3x IR

Depending on your settings you should have very little issue running at full speed for a large number of games.

If you put on a bunch of enhancements, or changed some random settings (youtube advice) then I could see some issues, but there should only be a subset of games that should give that CPU and GPU issue at 2-3x internal.
