How much effort would be required to skip using SSSE3?

I have an AMD 1100t Phenom II Hexcore CPU running at 4.0 ghz with 16 gb DDR3 and an AMD R9 390X video card.
It runs EVERYTHING I have thrown at it until I tried to run the emulator.

Only reason I have not upgraded yet is the fact that overclocked it is pretty danged powerful in it's own right, but primarily
it's because I have 9.5 TB of disk loaded with several different windows and a linux installation. 3 of the windows installations
are from the same license (Oh NO!) but they are used for different jobs. (Games, normal use, development). Rebuilding this
thing is going to be a nightmare.

So, Is there any hope of running a version without using SSSE3 ?

Thanks......

Even if you did, performance would be so slow that it would be useless

figures - So what is the minimum AMD FX cpu that would support this? Say if I were to get a new MB and an FX CPU and use much of my current system to keep the cost down, e.g. my R9 390x video card, x-fi extreme sound card, 16gb Crucial Ballistix DDR-1600 which is super overclockable on my current system. And, if necessary I can pair with another R9 390x video card doubling my GPU capability.

Is this feasible?

I am trying to determine the entry point for an AMD system. Obviously I wouldn't use the minimum cpu but I do want to know the starting point so I can decide just how much cpu I would need.


thanks for any advice...

None really, AM3+ CPUs are complete trash. They do have SSSE3 so they run RPCS3, but it's completely laggy. If choosing AMD, then it needs to be Ryzen / ThreadRipper.

Doesn't matter too, RPCS3 barely uses the GPU. For now. And I don't believe SLI/CrossFire is going to be immediately supported when RPCS3 starts using the GPU a lot (e.g: with upscaling).

I personally recommend Ryzen 5 as an AMD entry point. Although I'd buy Intel myself if I had to get a new CPU because FX-8350 was already terrifying enough.
Note that new Intel 8th gen CPUs will have more cores, so they will probably be better than Ryzen 1st gen at some price points.

Bonus points for the AMD GPU you have there. NVIDIA drivers have issues that cause shaders to use up a lot of RAM (the same issue that affects Cemu).
