[hatari-devel] Emulation on separate CPU cores

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More lists.tuxfamily.org/hatari-devel Archives ]


from time to time there's a question asked whether it wouldn't make sense to emulate the DSP, Blitter and maybe other ICs in separate threads.

Usually the answer is that the communication between threads / CPU cores would ruin the performance. Guess what, some guy didn't know this ;) and implemented a nearly complete Jaguar emulator in about three months from scratch: https://www.richwhitehouse.com/jaguar

It runs many games on never-before-seen 60 FPS, thanks for what? Thanks to the fact that the Tom, Jerry, 68000 etc all run on separate CPU cores.

Food for thought. ;)
