Please SarahWalker Add emulation of MPU401 board so that we can link it on MUNT.
I've made it very clear that I'm not interested. Stop asking.

Re: Future graphics card emulation

Given that you decided to make your first and at that point only post a request for stuff, I felt a little snark was in order.

Particularly as your request for the Trio3D suggests you didn't actually read this thread before posting.

Re: Future sound card musings

3. On adding to PCem the emulation of MT-32 (and siblings, with the presumed requirement of Bring Your Own ROMs), would such an effort be tantamount to a duplication of effort relative to MUNT? Yes. Either you'd be bringing basically the entirety of MUNT into the PCem source tree, or you'd be re-im...

Re: Why is accessing a physical CDrom so slow ?

CD access just isn't efficient on PCem at the moment. All CD I/O (with the exception of audio playback) is handled on the main CPU thread, meaning that if it's slow for any reason (eg it's spinning up a real CD) then emulation will stall and performance will tank. It's something that's been on my li...

Re: MT-32 and Linux

Hmm, I would have expected the MIDI out option to show, even if the drop down menu was empty. Probably just an odd UI difference.

When you built PCem, did you pass --enable-alsa as an option to ./configure ?

Re: Maximizing PCem performance

In the PCem configuration, in the video pane where you selected Voodoo 3, there is a configure icon next to the graphics card selector.

Specifically, you need at least 5 cores to run the main CPU + Voodoo 3 with 4 rendering threads.
6 - Voodoo cards have a FIFO/setup thread in addition to the rendering threads.

the cpu you mentioned will have a production process of 10 nm so they will have a higher ipc.
These two statements are unconnected. Silicon process does not directly affect IPC.

Re: Question about lower level hardware emulation

They're pretty much all ignored.

The _sole_ exception is on 386DX systems using the OPTi495 chipset (AMI 386DX clone and MR 386DX clone), where the external cache control will alter memory speed when 'Waitstates' in the PCem configuration is set to 'System default'.

Re: dos program like prime95 to stress emulated CPU ?

Interpreter only implements up to 486 instruction timings, hence a K6 with the internal cache turned off will be performing roughly like a 486 at that clock speed.

Re: dos program like prime95 to stress emulated CPU ?

Turning off 'internal cache' is a proxy for disabling the dynamic recompiler. PCem doesn't have any cache emulation.
