I asking because I just noticed that now. Melon runs slow in my pc but I always though it was because my processor was weak, however I just noticed that it barely use 60% from it! Is there any reason why this is happening?

does your CPU have multiple cores? if so, that's why. melonDS uses two threads at most to do the heavy lifting (CPU/emulator and 3D renderer).

My processor is a dual core AMD Phenom II X2 555. Is this processor strong enough?

hard to say without knowing the clock speed.

regardless, melonDS might not be using it fully because there will be one core doing more work than the other. it's inherent to how emulation works.

The core speed is 3,2GHz. Is it possible for the videoboard to be the culprit?

that sounds plenty, considering mine is 2.4GHz and it manages to run some shit at 60FPS

but that also depends what you're trying to run

also, it doesn't use the GPU, except for drawing the final screens to the window

The problem with AMD CPU's is that they generally have low single thread perfomannce which is important for emulation (if you have Vega you are fine though).
