View Full Version : Pcsx2 and core 2 duo notebooks/laptops

Hello. How pcsx2 behave on a 1.66 GHZ core 2 duo notebooks (like the Acer 5612 Nwlmi)? Anyone has tried it? Games like FFX can be played with decent speed? And about the AMD dual core counter-parts? I'm planning on buying a notebook, but I want one that runs pcsx2 playable... Any suggestions of models will be thanked. :)

Well, PCSX2 realies about 60% on processing power and 40% on video card power, so you would need a good video card along side a powerful processor.
For processor a Core2Duo is more suggested than a Athlon64X2, but Core2Duo notebooks are a lot more expensive as well.
As for video cards, the minimum I suggest is either an MR X1600 or 7600GT class video cards.
Lastly, notebooks are rarely overclockable, as well as not recommended. Because the main aim for notebooks is for simple work and not gaming and as such performance is expected not to be on par with desktop computers.

I'm running a Core 2 Duo @ 3.0ghz with a radeon x850xt... It runs almost anything at full speed... On a single core I get like 50 fps in FFX... With dual core I get extra 20fps depending on the game...
What you need is a dx9 card and a fast processor...
When I was running Pentium D 805 @ 3.6ghz with the same graphics card it would run it really slow... Like 15-20fps.... Although I was only using single core at the time...
I'm thinking yours will give you around 30fps if you have a good video card...
