MAME 0.173 being super-duper slow

Postby mrrhq » 2016-6-22 @ 06:00

Anyone else noticing how slow MAME is becoming? I used to get nearly perfect 100% on most arcade games I've thrown at it, and now for some reason it's hard to even stretch the FPS counter to 2%.

What's happened recently? Has anyone else had problems running MAME, ever since they merged in MESS as well?

Maybe it's just a bug on my system. Also, let me know how well MAME 0.174 performs. I'm using a Thinkpad X201 Tablet, with an Intel Core i7 L620 (with Ironlake integrated graphics, using OpenGL with GLX extensions, at 2.0Ghz)

It really should not be running this slow.

Holy crap, my Thinkpad is almost identical, save for the fact that mine's an x201 Tablet and not a plain x201.
