Re: DOSBox 0.74 CPU Benchmark

Yeah it is interesting. AMD IPC compares favorably to intel processors in some benchmarks and not in others. This dosbox benchmark is probably the biggest gap I have seen so far. The Kaby Lake CPU benchmarks are, on average, 12% faster clock-for-clock than Ryzen, and the haswell CPUs, which are …

Re: DOSBox 0.74 CPU Benchmark

I set my clock speed to a fixed 4.15ghz and disabled hyperthreading. Ran the quake benchmark and got pretty much identical results. Ryzen can be sensitive to memory bandwidth. A CAS 14 kit and/or memory with higher bandwidth could improve performance by a substantial amount in some benchmarks.

Re: DOSBox 0.74 CPU Benchmark

Hi mothergoose729, I noticed that Ryzens have some way worse performance in Dosbox than intel on same frequency. Just could you make a quake test while set the CPU affinity for dosbox proccess to only one CPU core? And maybe same with disabled hyperthreading/SMT or how it's called on AMD in SETUP? …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

Finally upgrading my PC after many years. Going Ryzen 5 3600 ... I do a lot of emulation, so I am excited for the extra threads and increase in IPC. DOSBox bench thread (check my signature) lacks newer Ryzen 3xxx to compare with previous 2xxx. Would be interesting to see the results for Ryzen's …

Re: Problematic Windows games list

I've noticed that in Windows 10, some games need 100% scale in Windows Display Settings to display properly. If it is set higher than 100% the game display may be cropped off. This did not occur in Windows 7. I've found 2 such games so far: Call of Duty 1, and GZDoom. Don't know if that's …

It was removed, yes, but it's possible to restore it.

Re: Problematic Windows games list

I've never heard of either "Secure disc" or "Light disc" so I have a hard time believing either of them are used for most games between 2002-2006. Most games from that time period use secdrv (SafeDisc/SecuROM), which is possible to enable in Windows 10, just a bit annoying. The real problem is …

Re: Problematic Windows games list

Everything that used secure disc or light disc DRM requires a no cd crack in windows 10. This includes most games released between 2002-2006. This is true even if you have the original media and an optical drive. Finding a list of "good" no CD cracks is its own challenge. I've never heard of either …
