Memu Emulator Best Settings and Performance Optimization for Gaming

Memu Emulator is one of the most fantastic android emulators for Gaming. The main reason for that is its ability to customize and allocate CPU and RAM resources to Gaming. This makes the emulator ideal for high-end games such as Pubg Mobile and Call of Duty Mobile. But many people are new to the Memu emulator. So here is a noobs2pro special guide On how to optimize Memu Emulator Settings to fix lag for high-end games like PUBG mobile and call of duty.

Memu Emulator Performance and Optimization settings

There are three types of settings you can change:

  • Engine Settings
  • Display Settings
  • Storage settings

Engine settings

Performance Settings

CPU: Same as your CPU Cores

Set it the same as your CPU Cores so that you can get the best performance. You should not be using other apps while using Memu Emulator as it will degrade the performance of the Android Emulator. I recommend using all the cores you have on your system so that you get the best performance for Gaming.

RAM: Same as your Ram

Give Memu Emulator all the Ram you have. Running Games Like Pubg and call of duty needs a lot of RAM. Even after using my PUBG Mobile Optizmation guide. I recommend giving it at least 4GB Ram for smooth gameplay. 8gb ram is recommended for better gaming performance in the Memu emulator.

Rendering Mode =  DirectX OR OpenGL

This setting depends on the game you are playing and your GPU. If you have one of the latest GPUs, then use DirectX. With older systems and GPUs, OpenGL works like magic. So use OpenGL if you have an old system or an old laptop.

I recommend testing the FPS for each major game you are playing. Some games run better in OpenGL while some run better in DirectX. So it is best to test each game.

But in my opinion, DirectX is the best for most games.

GPU Memory Optimization: enabled

Use GPU Optimization. It gives better gaming performance and also saves some resources. If you have a low-end GPU, then you definitely need to use it. It can help get you those extra FPS in games such as Pubg mobile and call of duty.

Display settings

Resolution: Same as your Monitor Resolution

For best performance on Memu Emulator and Gameplay Experience, set your resolution the same as your monitor Resolution. Otherwise, you will experience a blurry gameplay experience on Memu Emulator. I recommend you at least select 1366* 768. That’s the lowest I would consider.

Frame Rate: Set it to 60

This setting limits the in-game FPS. Setting it to 60 will give an excellent lag-free gameplay experience on Memu Emulator. There are only a few games that support 120 FPS. So if your game does support it and you have a good graphics card then go with 120 FPS. It is one of the key Memu Emulator Settings to fix lag in gaming.

Anti Flickering: Enabled

As the name suggests, it stops the flickering effect on the emulator. You can enable it for a better gaming experience. The flickering is rarely seen, so it is not that essential.

Storage Settings

Cache Policy: High Performance

This will make sure that games use HIGH performance caching policy while managing memory, and thus for low-end systems, it gives a good performance boost. I recommend this for all games having fast gameplay. It also helps if you install the game on an SSD.

Disk Management: Auto Expand

Make sure you give it enough space for running the game. I recommend 16GB as a good standard if you are going to play more than two games. 10GB is fine if you are playing Only one Game.

System Settings

  2. Go to the desktop.
  3. Start Task Manager.
  4. Find the Process for Memu Emulator
  5. Set Its Priority as HIGH.

Allocated Virtual Memory: Double your actual RAM

Your virtual memory should be double your actual RAM. This memory is used when the system runs out of Ram, so the more you have, the better.

This setting is hidden inside system settings.

Go to control panel>System and security.

System>advanced system settings>

Performance settings>

Virtual memory.

Set it as double your actual Ram. Mine is 8GB Ram, so I used 16000mb(16gb)

    • Kindly provide more details. Any errors you get.

      Posted November 25, 2020
  • 2 corrections needed. No complaints. Very good guide. Just pointing out a couple of oddities.

    1) In the memory allocation area you advise users to double their memory. But in the screenshot, you are showing an entry equal to your memory. (Up above it shows you have 16GB and your allocation entry in the last screenshot is 16GB, when it should be 32GB.)

    2) The actual allocation number you are demonstrating is incorrect. Memory numbers in MB are multitudes of 1024, not merely adding 3 zeros. (16000 would be equal to 15.625GB) The correct entry for 16GB is 16384, not 16000. Other memory values would be… 4GB = 4096, 8GB = 8192, 32GB = 32768, 64GB = 65536, etc….

    Posted December 14, 2020
    • Yeah, thanks for the correction with point 1. In the case of point 2, the exact number doesn’t really matter much. As long as you have plenty of head room to work it’s fine. I just wrote that for simplicity’s sake.
