For example same happened with VICE 3.0 version, it runs so slow on my PentiumM @2.13Ghz that was almost impossible to use it, but they somehow manage to improve the speed in newer VICE 3.1 version that it runs now between 1/4 till 1/2 of my PC cpu usage?!

I wonder how/what they did to achieve this speed improvement ?

Ps. Tested versions from here: https://www.c64forever.com/sourcecode/


EDIT:
Cloanto VICE 3.1 version seems better optimized than the Official VICE 3.1 version ?! (see on attached picture)
(regarding the previous VICE 3.0 version, both Cloanto or Official version uses whole CPU usage)

So, its not always "buy a new PC" the only solution for a problem.
