333 MHz

On startup Daedalus increases the default clock frequency of the PSP's cpu from 222MHz to 333MHz for a 'free' 50% speedup. I use 'free' in quotes because this comes at the expense of drawing more power so the battery runs out of charge faster.

I've been asked if I'm going to support 333MHz many times, so I wanted to put this question to rest for once and for all. The answer is yes - I believe this has been the case since R1 :)

How about supporting lower clock speeds? Or perhaps that isn't a good question until emulation speed picks up more...

and a more interesting question for the new(slim) psp,
are you going to use the extra memory(ram) that it has available?

Jody said...

So Daedalus was on 222MHz the whole time? I though it was always on 333MHz.

So what exactly does this mean?

Does this mean in the future it will be using 333mhz? Or that it is right now and has been since the very beginning?

lol, yea I always laughed at those comments pretty hard, but I mean if it was only 222, then dang that'd be a nice lil speed up

Eheh you don't need to answer to those sort of dumb questions ^^

Hopefully one day the emulator will be so good there is no need for 333Mhz.

@crazedover: That's definitely a possibility, but like you say, not until the emulator is running much faster.

@roelandb: I'll definitely be picking up a slimline PSP when they're release. I'm guessing it's going to be a while before we'll be able to run homebrew on it though!

@jody/ring-ding: Daedalus has run at 333MHz since the very first release.

Nah theres no way you should take advantage of that extra ram, you would be effectively locking out everyone who can't afford a new PSP from playing Daedalus.

Can't wait till your next blog update! I take it youve been working hard on other things besides the emu in real life to which you need to do. Anyways kudos for your amazing work on breaking the boundarys on what a psp can do looking forward to that glorious R20 with full speed emulation and great compatibility :D

Do you think that by allow the clock speed to change from 222mhz to 333mhz will allow some games to run. So example "Conkers Bad Fur Day" requires the 33mhz clock speed to run. hopefully this will allow us to play more games.

Hi is there anyway to set the minimum cpu speed to 333mhz as setting the speed to 333mhz will make the cpu go less than this at times. Any way for constant 333mhz always. Im thinking of the likes of setcpu for android which allows for a minimum and maximum speed I think this will help keep steady fps. Thanks.
