hey everyone

i read the rules before posting this, and i understand the consequences if i go out of topic, bostimon.
anyway let me get straight to topic
in pcsx2>config>cpu, theres something called features? what are these features? are these features, features from the computer or from files that you have or does it come from dumping of the bios and extracting it or how??

thnx

The features are simply the instruction extensions your processor is capable of handling.

For example if you have an Athlon XP it will list

MMX, SSE, 3DNOW, 3DNOW+

as they are the extentions the Athlon XP has. its these that determine if you can use VURec and Recompiler or just Interpreter.

okok i get da joke... but dis thread woz not for dat nyway.

i got another question to the guys...
does these features affect the pcsx2 besides being able to get to different modes allocated there?

i only got MMX, SSE, SSE2.. what are they for. what i mean is what do they stand for?

Its simple,
\ -->Interpreter (slow)
MMX -->Interpreter, Recompiler (faster)
MMX,SSE -->Interpreter, Recompiler (a little bit faster than MMX only)
MMX,SSE,SSE2-->Interpreter, Recompiler, Recompiler+VuRec (the fastest setting)

At the moment all P4 have MMX,SSE,SSE2. I think the AMD's too.

If you have an AMD that has the 3DNow or 3DNow2 instructions better, but I think the aren't implemented yet in the emu...

ok thanks again guys, i'll ask another question soon enough....

about that question....

i tried out the different modes

when i used interpreter mode - i get a whole bunch of frames and see alotta things

using the next mode - i get faster speed but not so many objects

the last mode - i get the highest speed from the three options but see only a very few things that i see in the other two modes.

anyone got an explanation for that?

I've read it bositman :p , as for your question Otrivin, it's because the first setting (interpreter is the most compatible, but also the slowest. Thus being more compatible, it will show more things as they are interpreted (hence the name). Recompiler tends to cut a few corners so to speak, by sacrificing certain features in the favor of a higher framerate (thus making it less compatible). There's alot more in-depth info n this, may I suggest checking out the guide? You can find it on the home page of this forum, as well as on PCSX2's site. As a matter of fact, here you go: Bositman's PCSX2 configuration guide

Actually MMX is an acronym for Matrix Manipulation eXtensions, (Originally it stood for Matrix Math eXtensions) (even before that it was just a meaningless initialism trademarked by Intel.)

But most people think it stands for MultiMedia eXtensions, however that is incorrect.

Sadly (for me) MMX optimizations will be completely useless in a 64-bit program /operating system.

(The same is true for all x86 optimizations)
