Best Settings for GFX Tool Pubg Mobile:

Settings for GFX Tool Pubg Mobile
  • Resolution: 1920(Full HD)

The resolution has a big impact on graphics. I recommend 1920(Full HD) for most (HD) for most people. If your game is still lagging, then switch to 1280(HD). Do not go below that as the graphics will be really unplayable.

If you are playing on a high-end tablet then you can use 2160 x 1080 Or 2560 x 1440 which is basically the highest resolution for pubg mobile.

  • Graphics: Smooth or Balanced

Smooth is the lowest quality setting you can select in the GFX tool for Pubg mobile. Unless you have a gaming phone. Smooth can fix the lag issue as well as get your game the FPS boost you need. So smooth is even better, but the graphics will drop significantly. So only low-end devices should use this.

Balanced is best for most devices.

  • FPS: 60 or 90 if supported

Higher FPS smoother gameplay. All mobile devices come with a 60hz or 90hz refresh rate. So it is always recommended that you have a 60 FPS or if your device supports it 90 fps limit.

If you are lagging a lot on 60 fps then select 30 FPS only as a last resort. Your phone is too low-end for gaming at that point.

  • Antialiasing: Disable

Definitely Disable it. Unless you have a very high-end phone, you should not enable antialiasing in GFX Tool settings for Pubg mobile. It is useful only for large-screen tablets.

  • Styles: Classic or Colorful

This is a personal preference. There is no impact on FPS as such. Classic is the most used. I prefer Colorful. It’s up to you. Colorful can help spot enemies better for some people.

  • Rendering Quality: Low

Set it at low. Unless you have a gaming phone like ASUS ROG or something equivalent. Stick to low settings. It lowers quality but makes it easier to spot players

  • Shadows: Disable

No advantage in games. You never really notice shadows while playing pubg mobile. Also, shadows have a lot of impact on FPS. So turn it off.

  • Shadow Distance: Low

When shadows are off this setting makes no difference. I recommend you turn off shadows. If you want shadows then at least turn this setting to low. It will help you get the FPS boost you need to play pubg mobile.

  • Moving Shadows: Disable

Anything setting related to shadows can be safely disabled. Shadows cause lag. You can disable these settings which I feel is the greatest advantage of GFX settings for pubg mobile

Settings for GFX Tool Pubg Mobile
  • Texture Quality: Medium or High

Texture quality should be kept Medium or high so that you can spot players easily. Low makes the game look really bad. So use it as a last option. I don’t recommend it personally.

  • Effects Quality: Low

The effects are best set to low. You can get the best performance increase at a very low cost. Set this to low. For snipers, you need this set this setting to high.

  • Improvement for Effects: Low

Similar to the above setting. Set it to low helps you see through smoke edges at times. 100% worth for gamers.

  • Objects LOD Distance: Low

This setting deals with the level of detail (LOD). Higher settings require more resources and lower settings require less. For snipers, you need this set to be high cause you might not see the buildings and crates on the map at long range.

  • Foliage LOD Distance: Low

Same as above just instead of objects it deals with foliage settings in the gfx tool. The less foliage the better so you can find the prone players in pubg mobile easily.

  • Color Format: 32bit or 64bit

Set this to 32bit if you want an FPS boost. Set it to 64bit if you want better quality. Better quality does mean you can spot enemies easier so 64bit is preferred.

  • Detail Mode: Low

Set it to low if you are a close-range and a mid-range fighter. You will be able to spot players better. Mostly removes useless details.

  • Light Effects: Disable

You do not need light effects. They cause FPS issues. You will also have difficulty spotting players. So set it to none in the GFX Tool

  • Graphics API: Vulcan or OpenGL

Vulcan API is recommended for devices with Android version 8 and higher. You can test with OpenGL if you get better performance.

  • GPU Optimization: Enable

This is a must-have. Thanks to the GFX tool in Pubg mobile, you can enable this setting. With this, you will have a better GPU performance while playing Pubg Mobile

  • Sound Quality: High or Ultra

Better the sound better your chances of hearing the footsteps. So get good headphones or earphones and set this setting to high or ultra if possible.

  • Save Controls: Enable

Saves your current controls, so you do not have to edit them again and again.

  • Thank you pro for this amazing guide, I have some questions to ask, and i will be grateful if you will answer me

    1. Should I enable GPU Optimization for a  Qualcomm snapdragon 623 / 4 RAM phone?

    2. How do I know if my phone supports Vulcan? And if is it the best option for me or not?

    3. GFX tool doesn’t show me the actual PUBG mobile storage size. My PUBG mobile storage size is 2.5 GB. When i went through the GFX tool to clear the data and cache to run the game, it shows me that PUBG storage is only 314 – 311 MB (despite that, when i run the game, the 60 FPS unlocked, and the resolution and graphics are changed as I customized). But I feel worried, does this mean that GFX tool doesn’t work properly on my phone? Does it affect the game performance? How could I fix this problem?
    I re-installed both PUBG mobile and GFX tool but the problem remains the same.

    Posted May 11, 2022
    • GPU optimization: yes
      Check fps with and without vulcan. If u get better fps switch to that. It depends on os and GPU. Hard to say since every piece is different
      The cache does not matter that much. Ignore that. As long as the settings are properly applied its fine
