Well, here we go. All I'll say is, MAME seems slower - especially with older drivers that don't need huge power to run.

System:
3.7GHz Core i3-6100
Intel HD Graphics 530
8GB RAM
Arch Linux (kernel 4.10.11)
WolfMAME 0.185 (SDL, 64-bit self-compiled)

Commandline options are the same as before. All values are speed percentage.

Code: Select all
pacman      556.96
malzak      458.32
ddragon     425.57
invaders    453.07
tbyahhoo    270.49
stunrun     349.78
mrdrillr    204.53
cotton2     239.73
beastrzr    285.20
puzzloop    275.18
sfiiin      444.87
strider     498.24
rsgun       223.62


Will try with -video bgfx later, which offloads blitting to a separate thread, like the old -mt option did (only in a way that actually works properly) EDIT: scratch that idea, BGFX refuses to run faster than 60fps for some reason, so Pacman won't run faster than 99%)

Thanks for that, Moore's law is at an end. We're still getting faster but at a slower and slower rate.

Will pull 0.126 from the old box eventually, and hope that it'll run (it should). Might give a better idea as to how much speed is lost simply through MAME shifting from C to C++14 and various emulation improvements over the past 9 years.

Grabbed a 64-bit SDL WolfMAME 0.127, and oddly enough, I still get 580% on pacman. Modern OSes use up this much more CPU time? Seems weird.

EDIT: Ok, adding -nomaximize makes it run much faster. Intel must have crappy texture stretching or something.
