Emulator Benchmarks

Once you get your hands on the Haswell refresh CPUs can you run some benchmarks using dolphin and PCSX2?

I would suggest Hyrule Field from Twilight Princess for dolphin and God of War 2 for PCSX2.

3.6Ghz core 2 duos could get 60 FPS in pcsx2 and dolphin, doesn't really call for it, but I'd be interested in what the IGPU could do

Some games have bad slowdowns even on my 4770k at stock Hyrule field drops down to about 25 fps (TP runs at 30) it's a well know issue with Zelda TP after you unlock all of Hyrule field the game slows down while in the field.

Didn't think about trying the IGPU that would be nice to see how it runs.

Who would have thought even 5 years ago that people would be getting so excited over igpu performance :D

Don't get me wrong, I am all for it... one of the biggest curses holding us back in gaming is the minimum spec that devs aim for with performance envelopes.
