Batocera is running kind of slow on my pc so I was hoping someone could give me recommendations on what to have in my pc (how much ram, what gpu to use, etc.)
I'm using a 10 year old dell inspiron 760.
ajdelguidice What do you mean by slow? And what guts does that inspiron have ? CPU? RAM? GPU?
@joinski posted interesting spread sheet some time earlier: joinski take a look.
BZZ batocera runs at 30 fps normally but when I load one of the more process heavy emulators (like ps2) it runs at 2-4 fps. The computer has 6gb of ram, no gpu, and an old core i5 processor.
ajdelguidice To be fair consoles like PS2 or GameCube and Wii need some more power. I have i5 with 4gb ram and GeForce GT 440. I use the legacy 5.24. It all runs fine. Never actually checked the FPS but when I see my son play I do not see any slowdowns.
Check the spread sheet https://forum.batocera.org/d/2976-installer-data-not-included-in/3 if you wanna get a GPU ;-)
I have a 3rd gen i7-3370s @ 3.10Ghz, 16GbDDR3 Ram, SSD, GTX 1050 2Gb GPU and PS2 struggles on the more demanding titles (shadow of the colossus for example). So I would assume you'll need a fairly powerful machine to run PS2 on all games smoothly.
Its up to your opengl version i think.
