PCSX2 PG Boost performance for Intel 945GM chipset!!!
Hi all, Been following PSX2 quite few years and never actually got the emulator working well...until PG arrive! Currently Playing FFX, getting stable FPS while on half occasion drop down to 20~30% FPS, except Hellfire Overdrive which i get like 1~2FPS when the aeon cast the big fireball <_<

my specs are:
Window XP Professional sp3
Core 2 Duo T5500 1.66Ghz
Intel 945GM Chipset( 950 Graphic Media Accelator)

Its becous u'r Graphic card its integred with the matherbord yes ??(sorry for my eng.) Wink
Your pc is really weak, you can't run games with a decent speed
don't use linear filter in gsdx and always use native resolution or 512x512.

this helps on my eeepc to prevent a bottleneck of the GPU.
Using native resolution in GSDX slows down games from my experience.

Native resolution is the default resolution of the game, which is only about 512x512 (around that). It doesn't make sense for your games to run slower with native res.

@cain: that depend from grapich card. For weak grapic card, native res. Can help to gain fps because that have a limit performance but with high/strong grapich card especcialy with ATI HD3870 or above with auto clock that may reduce to gain fps.

>> Emulation speed differs for each game. There will be some you can run fast easily, but others will simply require more powerfull hardware <<.
Whats the nicest way i can put this....

"You cant make a turd smell nice"

i think that pretty much sums it up Tongue2 Im afraid on that hardware you will never see reasonable speeds, the emulator requires pretty modern, fast hardware. No end of coding and optimizing will be efficient enough for your card to run at acceptable speeds

Are you all talking specifically about his 945GM chipset? Sorry for my ignorance, but I never thought a graphic card could affect that way a game's speed in PCSX2... I first thought that his processor was kind of bottlenecking him, but if it does speed shouldn't be that slow just because of it. I finished FFX almost entirely close to fullspeed -and even more in some areas- with a C2D T7100 1.8 GHz.

But I agree with everybody here, that chipset is not exactly what is needed to correctly run PCSX2.
