Thread: Dolphin is too slow. Obviously.....

  1. #1

    Default Dolphin is too slow. Obviously.....

    I know that the Dolphin Emulator is still under construction and all but I just really wanted to know if my system should be good enough or not to operate it.
    Basically I just need some opinions on my system's stats. I'm considering ordering a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ processor which has 2.60Ghz (.40 Ghz more then 4200+), so that I could run the emulator better, but I want to make sure I'm not getting my hopes up.

    My pc:
    Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.20 GHz 4200+ processor
    4.00 Gbs of ram (don't know the speed:T)
    PCI-E ATI Radeon HD 4600 with 1 Gb video memory
    .....even tho when I go to my properties it says 2271 Mbs of total available graphics memory, which I don't get at all>.<

    So if anyone knows more of the emulator's hardware requirements, leave a post?

    Your specs are fine.

    Are you using openGL ?
    Did you select the dual core option?
    What svn revision do you have?

    Umm yea pretty sure I got the openGL thingy set. That setting would be found in the configurations under the tab plugins, udder the section graphics in a drop down box right? If so then I has itXD
    Yes dual core option is set. It actually was a preset thing that I didn't have to touch at all.
    Uh yea "svn revision" don't know what that is... I mostly get my hands in the hard wear side of computers....

    Well the SVN revision is the most important element here. It will tell you the revision at the top of the screen ( title bar ). Where are you downloading dolphin?

    Oh I think I see what your saying now. I downloaded dolphin 2.0 from the what I would hope is the official web site, http://www.dolphin-emulator.com/
    I download like 7417 revision and seen no speed differences in speed so I just stayed with 2.0 because its more common.

    Maybe I'm expecting too mush of this emulator? It just seems like an average of 50% speed and 15 FPS is a little low for an emulator... After seeing the video on the front page running new super Mario bros perfectly, I get jealous mine is running at 10 fps with 35% speed.
