Game Mode PCSX2 - It works
« on: August 04, 2017, 10:14:32 pm »
Definitely see a significant speed boost with game mode on using pcsx2. My Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix went from 103% speed idle to over 110% speed with game mode on! I don't think it'll make unplayable games playable, but will make your games run better and allow you to at a higher resolution.
The downside is that it'll also make anything besides emulation of pcsx2 wonky (meaning you cant really change settings while it's running) probably bc it suspends certain processes to increase speed, and will have to restart your Win to fix that issue. Completely worth it though.

I only had a speedboost when the gamemode countered that cpu hogging bug after sleep mode...

if you don't have anything running in the background that constantly steals CPU then the gamemode is useless.

Indeed. Gamemode just ensures that other background processes are minimised (Such as windows updates processing in the background or other tasks)  It should not make any difference in most cases (If you are lucky, maybe 2% more efficiency).  Still good to have that feature none the less
