If you try Fpse (not CE, not for Droid, just Fpse) on a PC, it's the same, it requires an extremly low config to work
But a PC has got its own video card, sound chip (what is really important here, souds take so many ressources!), etc....
Anyway, of course Schtruck will improve the whole thing to get more speed, you can bet on it
I agree, but I would bet that the Tattoo is more powerful than a G3 Mac from 1999. Maybe I'm wrong but there's probably not much in it. The graphics card in it was an ATI Rage 128. I doubt that would have much impact these days.
Also, talking about sound emulation taking up resources, there should be an option to disable it. I personally never use sound and it would speed things up!
Great work regardless of course.
Even the smallest video card is important, I mean, it is in charge of the display, so that the cpu doesn't have it do deal with.
Same for sound
Same for controlls
The CPU of a phone (except a few ones with dedicated video chip maybe) has to deal with everythng at the same time.
If you could put your ATI video card, then a sound chip, etc to your phone, with its CPU, you'll have a very nice beast indeed, but you'll also need a 100W battery or so....
That's just the contrary of a video games console, that has slow CPU in terms of MHZ, but have multiple chips with multiple cores, a real orchestra inside (the graphic chip of a PS3, for example, is "only" 550Mhz....but the main CPU has 8 cores)
Another example: a PS1 was unable to emulate SNES games (nes were possible, so that you can use iso with 800 nes games on FPSE for Droid!!!!), while extreeeeemmmmllyyyy slow computers were able to do ti easily (as long as they had a poor VGA graphic card !!)
The PS3 can't run PS2 games, just because it misses a chip (except on some ealier versions)
This has been discussed much here: even with 1000mhz CPU, a smartphone can't compete a PC with a slower CPU.
But let's wait for dual or quad core CPU for smartphone, they'll give new possibilities
