PPSSPP poor performance on Galaxy S4 - crawlspace - 06-03-2015 04:43 AM

Hello. I'm new to android emulation and I feel like I have hit a wall with ppsspp gold on my Galaxy S4. It's an SCH I545 with a Snapdragon 600 and Adreno 320. It seems that no matter what settings I tweak or what guides I follow (including solarmystic's which hasnt been updated in a long time) the performance of my games are terrible.

So far I've tried Medievil Resurrection and I cant get past 20 FPS, while mostly hitting the teens. Speed is at 100%.

Daxter is about the same and Metal Gear Acid is semi playable, GTA VCS is fubar.

Help? Huh

Unfortunately, your experience is not distinct only to you. I've had that same device in the past and had the same performance. You'll need to enable auto framekip up to 3 in most games and use only at most 2x Resolution. Probably going to be mostly staying at 1x Resolution.

The Snapdragon 600 is simply too limited for PPSSPP in terms of hardware and drivers. Especially drivers. They're not what I would call great.

That's a shame. I think I'll just uninstall then, I've been pulling my hair out. Thanks anyways. In the future, what is the best phone to get?

The Galaxy S6 with the Mali t760 GPU will probably have good performance in PPSSPP. Smile
