I was in a thrift store today and saw a bunch of older SFF PCs. Taking a look at them i could get one with the Skylake for about 25 more Canuckbucks than the one with the Sandy Bridge AND buying a new GT 1030.
I’ve been using a tiny USFF PC with an i5-3570S and the iGPU (HD Graphics 2500). Its been pretty good but i have to be really careful with shaders and hard sync. IIRC have to turn hard sync off for N64/PS1 if i use even the most basic CRT shader. I can only play a few Gamecube/Wii games (at 1x) with it using the “real” Dolphin emulator. I’ve only really tried the NSMB games. Wouldn’t mind checking out PS2 emulation.
What do you think? The Skylake HD 530 seems like it would do what i want… the older CPU with the 1030 might be a lot better… but im still leaning towards the 6500. Heh.
