    Hi everybody,

    i just bought a raspberry pi 1 from amazon nad fired retropie on it.

    after a couples days of testing i achieved playable NES,SNES and MAME emulation. Mame is choppy sometimes but playable.

    I tested some N64 games and they were slow

    Then i tested some psx games (spyro 1,crash team racing,metal gear solid 1) and theyu where reeeeeally slow,unplayable.

    i overclocked to turbo but nothing changed!

    is there a way to smooth things up? i always used the stock retropie emulators.

    My only hope is to upgrade to RPI 2?

    thank you

    Here’s a video made by Floob where he compares the perfomrance of the two Pis.

    As you can see in the end, the Pi 2 really brings a difference.

    Just search for “retropie raspberry pi 2 psx” on youtube. 😛

    I think the performance is quite good.
