I was very excited to see such a large update to the Kronos core this morning. Even MORE exciting is that I see it now supports chd images. This previously kept me from playing with the core at all as I just don’t have the space for bin/cue or the patience for zip lol
Anyway, I’ve been toggling through settings all afternoon and for the life of me I can’t get a shred of decent performance out of it, whereas with Mednafen I get fullspeed. Now I’m not expecting things to ‘just work’. I know this is a different core from beetle as well, so it’s not a 1:1 comparison.
I am surprised though that I can’t get playable speeds out of it. My PC isn’t top of the line, but it’s no potato:
- Intel i7-4790k @ 4.0Ghz
- AMD RX 590 8GB
- 16GB DDR3
As far as I know my build supports the latest OpenGL, but I tried nearly every combination of settings (including default, tried that first) that I could in Core Options. I’m running at native internal resolution, no shaders, glcore video…
Am I doing something wrong, or are the requirements for this core actually higher than my system can handle?
