PCSX2 1.2.1 or Git?
#1
Which has better general performance/compatibility?

I tried searching the forum and couldn't find anything asked within the last 2 years I also looked through the FAQ and stickied threads and didn't see anything.

1.2.1 has slightly better performance, but slightly lower compatibility.

though, I do notice a increase in performance on some games on the development builds rather than the stable build. it depends on the game and the type of hardware, there are lot of other factors too. it's always better to try both of them and check which one offers the better performance.
We're supposed to be working as a team, if we aren't helping and suggesting things to each other, we aren't working as a team.

This. I actually tested the other day, and in most games I got more performance with the latest GIT than with stable 1.2.1 (about 2 FPS).

I'm guessing some recent improvements have sped it up enough to offset the PGO optimizations that stable has.

I'm not going to pretend to know what a "PGO" optimization is but could they be applied to the latest dev build?

They aren't. PGO optimizations take a lot of time to do and are only applied to the stable builds.

You didn't sound very certain
