Triple buffering causing severe slowdown
« on: April 23, 2021, 02:34:41 AM »
Hi

I've noticed that when I check "Enable Triple Buffering (Fullscreen) , I get very poor frame rates (around 15~20 fps) , regardless of what blitter option / settings I use

When I turn Triple Buffering off , the performance returns to normal

The slowdown is there for all games I tried  , from late 70s titles to later hardware like CPS3 or PGM

I've tried updating my graphics driver , running dxdiag , but nope

Not a big issue , but has been bugging me nonetheless

Thanks for any insight and best regards

I wish I could offer some advice here, but, I just don't know what it could be - I've never encountered a situation where triple buffering caused a problem.

After updating to latest github build the issue seems to be no more (no slowdown with triple buffer on)  :cool:

I don't have a clue what the issue was , anyway  :biggrin:

Thanks for the hard work on this fantastic emulator , dink !  :wink:
