GLSL acceleration better than HLSL

Post by codyrock2001 » July 21st, 2016, 9:56 am

So I'm having a slight problem. I run a Lenovo T500 2.8ghz Core 2 Duo with a Radeon hd3650 discrete card of 256mb. I would think that this isn't a horrible machine but now I'm thinking its underpowered for HLSL. What I've discovered is using mameuifx is I can use GLSL with less of a performance hit than HLSL but still not always getting 100% speed. Also it's seems strange that I can enable HLSL and vertical games run fine at 100 percent speed but it's the horizontal games that bother and won't reach full potential. Just a rundown HLSL is running about 65% speed and GLSL is running about 96-99%. Any thoughts here?

From the sound of things, it is likely that your machine is on the borderline of struggling with MAME shaders.

Anyway, can I have a look at your mame.ini file? Please use the Code tags, like so:
