PCSX2 is a
PlayStation 2 emulator.
The emulator contains highly optimized dynamic translators for
the PS2's MIPS
and VU chips. Performance is greatly boosted by multi-core CPUs.
PCSX2, like its predecessor PCSX,
is based on a plugin
architecture, separating several functions from the core emulator.
These are the graphics, controls, CD/DVD drive, USB, sound, and
FireWire (i. Link) ports.
PS2 Emulation is a complex task, simply due to
the CPU power required to get 'playable' speeds from a PS2 game under
emulation. Whilst speed can be improved via various 'recompilers',
you will still need a powerful machine to obtain smooth gameplay.
