The Atari "Accelerator" - Atari800winPlus

Recommended Posts

For emulator users:

what kind of speed are you getting on Atari800win Plus? Granted, for games it doesn't matter, but on some computation-intensive applications, faster is better.

It can vary a lot dependant on what screen size you're using, and some graphics and other settings.

 

A quick try with version 4.2s, with threaded emulation enabled on my Core2Duo E6420 gives about 5500% (on smallest screen).

 

With older versions without multi-threaded emulation and highest windowed resolution I'd normally get somewhere around 2800-3200%

 

I believe it can also vary with what sort of graphics/sound is going on at the time, so something like a blank screen would probably reap the fastest result - plus the emulated machine would be getting less DMA steals.

How do I enable 'multi-threaded' emulation?

 

I made the window smaller and got 4500%

 

I have a QX6700 Quad Core machine

Ah ok - I got 5800 in small window and between 3500 - 4500 in large window. I have 4.0 - I need to upgrade to 4.2 - Not that anything is useful at 5000% speed :)

Never seen a higher version than 4.0, but there is an optiion for threraded emulation too.

 

Goto: Misc - Preferences - Threaded Emulation :)
