psx2 games working slow
(02-14-2012, 06:12 AM)[pro]PCSX2 Wrote: LOL tallbender your a busy guy!

but i wonder, why do people insist on telling us on the PCSX2 forums "im gunna buy an 800 dollar laptop, will that work!?"

and the answer is ALWAYS no.

1. Not worth the $$
2. Not strong enough.

... if its not at least 3.0ghz then you will be mostly OK. Although getting to 4ghz is the sweet spot. ...

You are wrong to flat-out say "No. Period.".

Not worth the money?
Mobility has it's price, of course.
It's an individual's choice as to whether or not it's worth it.
The only point to be made here is an obvious one; mobile hardware will be a toned-down version of it's desktop counter-part.

Not strong enough?
Now you're only right if you include "for everything" at the end.
Mobile hardware capable of full speed emulation of many games for years now, and I'm not talking just "games that don't need a strong CPU" to run. The processor of my laptop I bought over 2 years ago now actually qualified as too strong for submissions to that thread.

And if you wanna talk prices and performance now,
I've seen a laptop stronger than your desktop selling at ~$800.
(big thanks to the processor performing at 3Ghz like yours would at 4Ghz.)

FWIW - If you already have an i7, and you are certain it's having a negative effect on performance (it can happen, but not necessarily), do not switch to an i5 to escape Hyper-threading. It is a feature that can be disabled.

@ warlock.911:
Your system is decent, but games you've mentioned will surely need some Speedhacks for any chance to run well.
I don't think you'll get the best results in the end with MGS games.
Wrestling games can be slow, especially with multiple wrestlers on-screen.
God of War probably won't ever keep full speed, and often will not reach it.
Some DBZ games are heavier. The older Budokai games are worse, but DBZ:BT3 should be possible.

Make sure you keep the internal resolution low (like on native).
And make sure you're utilizing some Speedhacks when games are slow.
Try using as few/little hack as possible, though.
