Some games work better than others, but to get it running fairly stable and not at like 8k or something it shouldn't require too much juice.

Nope. You just set it up for your system specs.

Well I try everything to make it work; in the end, it runs poorly

What are your pc specs and what games are you mainly trying to emulate ? pcsx2 relies a lot on cpu, which needs to have a decent ipc and while there's a lot of games that work fine with dual cores a quad is recommended.

Seems you have a GTX 1060 6gb and a Ryzen 5, it should run flawlessly. Click on Config at the top, then Video, then plugin settings. Set your GTX 1060 as your adaptor, Direct3D11 as your hardware, interlacing as auto. Set the resolution of your monitor as the resolution. You should be able to enable HW Hacks so tick that and click on configure hacks. Everything in there should be off, just set MSAA to 2x or 4x, I'd try 2x first and work your way up. Texture filtering to bilinear(PS2), Anisotropic Filtering to whatever you want(I have mine off).

 

Try those settings and see how it works out for ya'. Works fine for me and I have similar PC specs to you.

No, I am talking about my very old PC. It was AMD FX 8150 and Nvidia 650 ti

Oh there's your problem, the fx 8150 has a terrible ipc, unless you run the very few lowest requirement games it wont work well. The 650ti should do fine with 2x internal resolution in most games.

So my new Ryzen 5 1600 and 1060 will run fine?

For most games yes, not all games are emulated the same so i can only give a vague answer for the majority.

While I'd point out this would be a problem, since most emulators rely on single threaded performance, the FX-8150 is able to at least surpass the baseline Dolphin emulator benchmark. You may need to really tweak with PCSX2's CPU settings to get it to work.

You gotta lower the settings. MSAA off. Try 1280x720 resolution. Should work just fine in 1080p resolution with MSAA on in your i5/1060.

Unfortunately I had a multitude of fx configs, they all did poorly with pcsx2 and the lowest clocked one i had was at 4.6 ghz... In most games it isn't apparent right from the start but sooner or later it will reach a point where it will start dropping frames, either when things start getting more complex or when some extra effects hit it. PCSX2 is also slightly more complex then dolphin, not to mention that currently its most accurate render is opengl and there's no plans for more morden API's. PCSX 2 can also devide tasks up to 3 cpu's, when used with a graphic accelerated API and even more when using gsdx in software mode, but the load on a single core of the fx its still to much.

Most of them yes, should work nicely. Rachet and clank is a nightmare though on any system.

yep, i have, but i have a ps2 with a HDD that i use to stream instead,

 

You can clean up some games real nice with the emulator though, but there are issues with quite a few games.There hasn't been and update in a while, it seems to have been stuck on 1.4 for a long while now, although i have not checked in a while.
