Any point in swapping out this dual core for this quad core?
08/10/12 02:50 AM


My current rig has an Athlon II X2 260 running @ 3.20GHz. I have this Phenom II X4 945 Quad Core Processor - 3.00GHz, 6MB Cache sitting here that I'm thinking about dropping in. My current cpu is fast enough for everything else I do so this is purely for improving MAME performance. There are a few games I have that don't quite stay 100%:

Radiant Silvergun
Strider 2
Xevious 3D-G
Gradius 4

Will the Phenom II run these games better? It's a much better processor than whats in the rig, but as I said, the current one is fine for everything non-emulation related.

I'd also like to hear an opinion regarding any potential performance gains in BSNES as well.
