Sticky Will PCSX2 run fast on my computer?

I can play gran turismo at full speed? If yes suggest me what setting i put on emulator thank

First recommended setting is to make sure your laptop is set to high performance in the power settings and nvidia's control panel set to prefer maximum performance, also if your laptop has any cool and quiet settings or programs or any power saving/ energy management programs then try to disable those.   Also make sure that nvidia optimus is not making PCSX2 run on the intel integrated GPU.

Basically your laptop is right on the edge of getting good performance in gran turismo (which is a very heavy game to run), but if heat or performance tweaking issues come up then it can easily go into unplayable territory.  I would not use MSAA in GT4 (it causes issues) also make sure you are using one of the Git builds and a new(ish) one at that to avoid VRAM spikes crashing GT4.  Along those lines also keep the internal resolution reasonable since it can also make those VRAM spikes worse.  Also cheat to get the licenses since the license tests also seem to be one of the worst areas for the VRAM issue.

Ok you are right in the license pcsx2 crash... i search on internet for savegame with only complete license
hows it going guys i like to say amazing work you guys have done with the pcsx2 now. im on a laptop and this is my Machine Init:
Operating System =  Microsoft Windows 8 Pro 64-bit Physical RAM = 3947 MB CPU name =  Intel® Core™ i5-2430M CPU @ 2.40GHz
Vendor/Model = GenuineIntel (stepping 07) CPU speed  =  2.393 ghz (4 logical threads). what i dont get is i can play Resident Evil Outbreak 2 fine but any other games runs to slow any tips other then buy a better pc lol
There is really no magic bullet to fix performance issues with slower hardware (well besides the buy newer [and faster] components)

Things you can do (if you have not already)
1. Make sure your laptop is in power mode - high performance not balanced or even worse battery saver
2. Make sure there is no power saving software running from the manufacturer.
3. Hope the laptop have no heat issues (besides not blocking vents and just having a good laptop with good cooling not much you can do here)
4. Basic performance based maintenance (run as few background programs and services as you can, driver updates, ect.)

Basically you are already under the recomended performance level for PCSX2 for most games and well below the recomemded level for demanding games, so you want to make sure you are not loosing any more performance. The rest will just be accepting that certain games will not play well on your laptop and you will have to rely on your original hardware to revisit those titles.
thanks TkSilver might have to look in to getting the EXP GDC for laptops

If you have the hd3000 intel integrated gpu in your laptop no one is gonna argue that it is a great gpu (or even a good one), but adding an external Graphics Solution is not going to help emulation on that laptop (except for some of the more demanding titles that your CPU would not handle well and adding graphic enhancements).  Instead of spending money on an extrenal expresscard solution and a Graphics Card I would highly recomend saving the money and looking to either upgrade the laptop to a newer one with a better CPU and GPU, or even if you don't care about mobility for emultion building a desktop where something like a  Pentium G4560 would completely crush your current setup in performance for a really nice price.
thinking of buying a cheap laptop, any idea how well dq8 will run on intel hd 620 and i3-7100u, thanks
I have an acer aspire e 15 with windows 10. I don't know what specs are on it but i'm pretty sure that the graphics card I have is an Intel HD Graphics Card. Is that any good?

A bit weak for most games.
depends on the ones you own, actually.
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go
Hi! I'd like to ask about pcsx2 performance in more or less outdated hardware. Around a year ago I assembled, using second hand pieces of hardware I'd been acquiring cheap at garage sales and second-hand shops, etc, a computer which I intended to dedicate entirely to emulation up to ps2, psp, nds, dreamcast and gamecube emulation.

The specs of such computer are: core 2 duo e7500, gtx 650 OC 2gb DDR5 and 4gb DDR2 800.

I have to say, with pcsx2 it has performed fairly well with several games (I've finished Tales of the Abyss and it ran full speed most of the time, apart from some slowdowns in certain places like Grand Chokma, Baticul, etc)

Now the thing is: a friend of mine offers me for a reasonably low price a tandem cpu/motherboard/ram which consists on the following:

Core i3 4130-T, Asus H81M-E and 8gb DDR3 1600.

Would these specs notably outperform my current rig? I've compared the Single Thread Rating (which I've read is what really matters when it comes to emulators) of both cpus and e7500 scores 1200 while i3 4130T scores around 1670.

Am I going to have a noticiable increase in performance with pcsx2 if I change to this new cpu?

Thank you very much.
