|NTSC-U||Windows 7 x64||
||1.3.0 (git 13-May-2014)
||Setting EE Cyclerate to 3 causes echos in FMVs.||Hellbringer616|

||v1.5.0 (dev-214/218 ?)
||GSdx SSE4 & GSdx SSE4 (r4734m-FF7_DoC)
||SPU2-X (2015-09-12)||With official GSDx plugin, the game is playable on Software-rendering mode. It is usually about 10–20 FPS slower than hardware-rendering (with 4 threads). With custom plugin, the game is playable on Hardware-rendering mode without bad graphical glitches, and yes, the custom plugin works on newer PCSX2-builds after putting SDL.dll to the emulator's root directory. Although the game is not graphically intensive, it is still much slower than other games with similar graphics quality, but runs at playable speeds. Some slowdowns can be expected.||Titus03|
|PAL||Windows 7 Professional x64||
||1.5.0-dev2448-gd09737dbb||GSdx 1.1.0 AVX2||
||Runs good in Hardware mode but when using High Internal Resolution (X6 or more) some scenes and places causes the frame rate to drop 30%~70% + some echo in the sound when viewing FMV.||HimaOuji|
||GSdx32-AVX2 1.2.0 (default 1.6)
||Moderate slowdowns in ingame cutscenes and occasionally in gameplay.||Nyahello|
||Game has serious performance issues. Software mode runs at ~30% speed even with 16 threads. Hardware mode cannot hold full speed; while sections do run at full speed, combat sees drops as low as 60-70% speed, even at native resolution. It appears to be a CPU bottleneck causing these issues. These issues occur with both the normal pcsx2.exe or the pcsx2-avx2 build. Performance is identical to 1.6.0. Playable, but slow.||TheMrIron2|
