    Dolphin x64/Dual Core BETA screenshot (warning 56Ks)

    Here are some screenshots from a "secret*" private Version of Dolphin built for 64bits CPU with Dual Core support and optimisation. The updates are only on the core, thing that improves the speed of most games by a ton.



    Please take note:
    -There is NO update on graphic or audio plugins
    -There is a change in compatiblity due to Core changes, some games run better, some are running worse and some aren't running anymore.
    -On screenshots, only take a look at the FPS, that's where you can see the difference.
    -Speed is really CPU dependant now, you don't need a crazy machine to get 1 more FPS.

    My System:
    -Windows XP 64bits Professional
    -AMD Athlon 64 3200+ S939 (2.01GHz)
    -1024MB DDR400 (Dual Channel)
    -Asus A8N5X (nForce4)
    -Geforce 6600 256MB (PCI-E)
    ----
    Emulator settings:
    -Recompiler
    -NO Dual Core
    -800x600
    -PS 2.0
    -no AA/AS

    Crazy Taxi (20 to30fps)



    Mario Kart: Double Dash (10 to 30FPS)





    Paper Mario (20 to 30+ FPS)




    Pikmin (15 to 20 FPS)



    Custom Robo
    -from 10 to 35+ FPS
    --I actually finished the whole game in some nights, fully playable, some graphical bugs, always faster when there's less characters showing on the screen, 1 vs 1 robo battles full speed (at 4 it's a bit quite slow)
    -Only 1 screenshot showing a nice FPS





    Also, if you are registed to emuforums, here are CKEmu's highres fast screenshots:

    Very awesome to see work is still being done on this great project! Any hints on how much speed improvement we dual-core users will see? Have you guys tried out Wind Waker yet?

    consider... the previous version was able to make 3 fps!

    Edit: why there is the gekko-emulator on the screenshots? I think we are talking about dolphin... arent we?

    Since the name of the CPU unit in the Gamecube is called Gekko, im going to guess it has something to do with that

    It says Gekko-limited, not that it's running on Gekko.

    it's because Dolphin 64 runs the graphics on a different window instead of in the dolphin GUI, that's why I kept the dolphin main window in the back.
