||1.0.0 (r5350)||GSDX r4600||
||All hacks have no substantial speedup, except MTVU (Multi-Threaded microVU1) which showed significant speedup. Scaling is the main drain of the game. Usually 55-60 FPS during fights and cutscenes. However, it may lag to around 40 FPS for a second or two with big explosions such as Fire effects (or in other instances).||Bot2345|

||EE/VU Clamp: None/None, EE Cyclerate : 3, stays between 40-50FPS through out, Status|
||SPU2-X||Runs 100% on DX11 Hardware, use OpenGL to fix the sunlight bug (tested on v1.5.0-dev-1103-gfb2182d)||xVxXPrinceXxVx|
||v1.5.0-dev-2760-g50b71f69d||GSdx SSE4.1||SPU2-X 2.0.0||Runs at (hacked) 60fps pretty well. Use speedhacks on Aggressive but disable EE Cycle Skipping and set EE Cyclerate back to normal. Make sure MTVU is on. Visual bloom flickers in hacked 60fps.||nuclearfarts|
||1.7.0 (dev-13 g8bf6ba144)
||GSdx 1.2.0 AVX2
||Minor graphical issues. Easier to see on higher resolutions. "Seams" in images, the cursor for example. The 60fps patch breaks Quick Run (makes it shorter) and makes some bosses and minigames hard/impossible. Without the patch those issues do not exist. The PS4 version has more issues than this one so I'd consider the experience superb.||Bizlab|
