Best setting for Asus G53S
Hello everybody
Hope you're fine all

I don't know anything about configuration of PPSSPP, and I would like to get your advice for the best setting I should apply for my Asus G53S (R.O.G)

Here is my laptop specifications :

OS: Win7 Premium Family Edition 64b SP1
CPU : Intel Core i5 2410M @ 2.30GHz
RAM: 6GO DDR3 @ 665 MHz
GPU NVDIA GeForce GTX460M 1.5GB

Cordially

RE: Best setting for Asus G53S
Hello and welcome to the forums Samurai500.

Firstly, disregard my performance thread. That is not applicable for your system.

With a reasonably high powered (for this emulator) laptop like that, the defaults that ship with the emulator are good enough, but with a few changes for the best quality.

Open up PPSSPP, head to Settings, then Graphics and change the following:-

Postprocessing Shader:- Choose either Natural Colors or FXAA Antialiasing. FXAA when combined with 8x PSP Rendering Resolution provides a pretty superb jaggy free experience.

Rendering Resolution:- 8x PSP or higher (biggest visual improvement, and the 460M GTX should be able to cope with this, just make sure Rendering Mode is set to Buffered Rendering.)

Vertex Cache:- Disable it. Performance loss will be negligable on your system, and this provides the best graphical experience, since VC on has issues in certain games like Danganronpa and Project Diva 2 (rapidly blinking eyes). In fact, with the latest Vertex Decoder JIT commits that been merged to master recently, you could even see some performance improvements by disabling it.

Lazy Texture Caching and Retained Changed Textures can also be disabled for the same reasons.

Texture Scaling

Upscale Level:- 3x (higher values cause massive hitching/stuttering even on better PCs)

Upscale Type:- Hybrid + Bicubic (personal preference)

Deposterize:- On (personal preference)

Anisotropic Filtering:- 16x

Ensure all Speedhacks in the Graphics page are disabled.

That's pretty much it. The rest of the settings are fine and should only be changed for compatibility reasons on a per game basis, performance shouldn't ever be an issue for your laptop. Just make sure the emulator is using your NVIDIA card and not the Intel Integrated card (which should be automatic.).

PPSSPP Modern Testbed:-
Intel Core i5 4690K @ 4.0 GHz
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 760 2GB GDDR5 VRAM @ 1138/6500 Mhz
16 GB DDR3 RAM @ 1600 MHz
Windows 7 x64 SP1

PPSSPP Ancient Testing Rig:-
Intel Core 2 Duo T9550 @ 2.8GHz
ATI Mobility Radeon 4670 1GB GDDR3 VRAM @ 843/882 MHz
8 GB DDR3 RAM @ 1066 MHz
Windows 7 x64 SP1

RE: Best setting for Asus G53S
Thank you solarmystic ! =)
Thank you for your advice

To recap, my laptop is enough powerful to run the emulator with his default setting ?

I just tried GoW Ghost of Sparta
But it's lagging at the menu and during the in game, at the cinematics no problem.

I can't found in the setting where to switch between my NVIDIA card and the Intel Integrated card.

I have 0.9.8 version of PPSSPP

@Samurai500

Thanks for your feedback, glad to know it's working well for you.

As for the GoW games, make sure that the Prevent FPS from exceeding 60 option in the Graphics Settings is ticked. It should be on by default anyway.

Regarding this:

There's no option, because PPSSPP asks the NVidia driver to use your NVidia GPU always, for the best performance.

3.8ghz i7 5930K, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 4GB Nvidia GTX 970, Asus X99 PRO, Windows 7 (SP1) x64
