Mumu Emulator’s best settings for Gaming and Max FPS

Mumu is one of the newest Android emulators for gaming out there. It is owned by Netease Inc. This emulator is especially good if you are playing NetEase-made games. Especially since the rise of mobile games like PUBG and Call of Duty Mobile gaming on emulators has become the popular choice for PC gamers who love mobile games. So here is a guide for performance optimization for Mumu Emulator for gaming.

So you can change the Mumu Engine settings and the Interface Settings for better performance in gaming.

Mumu Advanced settings

Graphics Rendering Mode =  DirectX OR Vulkan

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, Vulkan works like magic. So use Vulkan if you have an old system or an old laptop.

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

Performance: Custom

CPU Cores

Select the number of CPU cores you have. The number of actual CPU cores. The QUAD core CPU has four cores; the Octa core CPU has 8 etc. So depending on your system specifications make sure to use the maximum number of cores you can allocate to the Mumu emulator for gaming.


Use all the RAM you have for the Mumu Emulator. Emulators require a lot of RAM, and thus it is recommended that you give 8GB RAM to Mumu for gaming. Generally, all the systems in the market now have 8GB RAM, so I don’t think it will be a problem. If you have more RAM like 32GB or something you can allocate it via the custom option.

Make sure to restart Mumu Emulator to save Changes.

Force use of Discrete Graphics: Enabled

Use this if you have a newer GPU, that too a dedicated one. This setting is recommended for systems with dedicated GPU. You will get a good FPS boost in the Mumu emulator and thus get a better gaming performance overall for all games

Resolution: Your monitor Resolution

Go with your monitor’s resolution. It is the most recommended Mumu emulator for gaming. The game runs smoother and cleaner when compared to other emulators for gaming.

If you are still getting laggy gameplay then use lower resolution settings. The game will look a bit choppy but if you have a potato PC you don’t really have many options.

Screen Style: Eye protection

Optional but really useful if you do long hours of gaming sessions. Will help reduce eye strain and make a better gaming experience for you.

FPS: 60 or the same as your monitor refresh rate

60 FPS is the best for most games. You can enjoy truly lag-free gaming and have a great gameplay experience when playing on 60 FPS. If you have a good GPU with 8GB VRAM then you can also select the same fps as your monitor refresh rate for an even better gaming experience.

So if you have a 144hz display then use 144 fps etc.

You can also enable the show fps option so that you can keep track of fps while gaming on the Mumu emulator. This can help you check that your performance optimization for the mumu emulator is actually working as expected.

Virtual memory.

Set it as double your actual RAM. Mine has 8GB RAM, so I used 16000 MB (16 GB)
