Worse lag with better specs?
For some reason I'm getting more lag on PPSSPP on this phone compared to an older one with similar specs

1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 (quad-core)
2GB RAM

Compared to the older:

1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM896 (quad-core)
1GB RAM

The only thing I play is the Project DIVA series and it seems that the first game has more lag and DIVA 2nd runs the fastest (still with lag).

My settings are:
Buffered Rendering
Unlimited Alt. Speed
1x rendering and display resolution
Hardware Transform
Vertex Cache
Lazy Texture Cache
Disabled Slower Effects
Low Resolution Bezels
Fast Memory
I/O on Thread
Host I/O Method

I'm also using ver. 1.4.2 if that matters

Anyone know why I might be getting this lag?

RE: Worse lag with better specs?
Snapdragon 210 and Snapdragon S4 MSM896 aren't similar, they are very different. The SD 210 uses a Cortex A7 (old low-end) CPU while S4 Cortex A9 (old high-end), which is alot faster. In some cases Cortex A9 can perform better than Cortex A53 (the current mid-end).

If you bought SD 210 to replace the S4, you did a downgrade.

Thanks for letting me know. Guess I'll be dealing with lag for a while.
