How to configure AetherSX2 in low-end mobiles

Have you installed AetherSX2 and have you noticed that it is slow, it crashes and lags? Would you like to know how to configure AetherSX2 on low-end mobiles ? Well welcome to MrAppsGeek , in this simple video we will teach you how to improve the FPS in this incredible PS2 emulator for Android .

What Are The Minimum Requirements For AetherSX2 2023?

The recommended requirements to run AetherSX2 smoothly is a SnapDragon 845 or similar. Although the most important thing is that the device has at least 4 Cortex A75 cores .

It should be noted that in this emulator for Android , RAM has little influence on performance , the bottleneck being the processor and the GPU .

Notably, Snapdragon CPUs will perform better than MediaTek or Exynos , just as Adreno GPUs outperform Power VR and Mali .

AetherSX2 Is Slow On My Mobile Solution 2023

Does AetherSX2 lag? Well, don’t worry, you should know that this emulator is widely configurable and has many options that will allow us to improve its performance when running our PS2 game backups .

Below we offer you a series of tips to improve the performance of AetherSX2 on low-end mobiles so that you can play as smoothly as possible.

How To Configure AetherSX2 To Go Faster 2023

The first step will be to open this Ps2 simulator for Android and follow these settings:

  1. We enter the tab “System” (System) .
  2. In “EE Cycle Rate (UnderClocking)” we lower the percentage to 75%, 60% or 50% (it is recommended to test).
  3. In “EE Cycle Jump (UnderClocking)” we will have 3 levels of “UnderClock” (Slight, Moderate and Maximum) if the game is slow, go down the same steps as the “EE Cycle Rate (UnderClocking)” option .
  4. Activate the Multithreading option for VU1 (As long as you have 3 large CPU cores, if you have a low-end mobile, try deactivating this option, it still improves the FPS).
  5. In “Normal Speed” you can try to increase a percentage between 100-110% in some games like Dragon Ball Z Tenkaichi 3 it can greatly improve performance.
  1. Then we go to the “Graphics” tab .
  2. In GPU Renderer leave it in OpenGL (it’s more stable) however there are games that work much better with Vulkan , it’s just testing.
  3. In “Scaling Multiplier” we can increase the resolution of our game, X1 being the native resolution of the console . Remember… the higher the resolution, the better the game will look, but the slower it will be.

We go further down the graphics section and we have to have the Shader FXAA option deactivated (this will make the game look much better but will sacrifice performance).

  1. In the lower part of the “Graphics ” tab we will have to activate these options.
  2. GPU Palette Conversion (increases speed in AetherSX2) .
  3. Preload Textures.
  4. Disable Hardware Data Return.
  5. Current Impulse Rate.
  6. Skip Duplicate Frames (increases speed in AetherSX2) .

Finally, if the games have a graphical glitch or are slow, we can configure the options in the “Advanced” tab.

  1. We activate the “Improvement Hacks” .
  2. Align Sprite (if the game has vertical stripes, such as Tekken 5, this option corrects it).
  3. Mix Sprites.
  4. Wrap Memory.
  5. Frame buffer conversion.
  6. Quick override of textures.
  7. Disable deep emulation.

Remember to activate these options 1 by 1 only if the games have graphical errors since these last configurations have practically no influence on the speed of the emulator, they only correct visual errors.

I hope that now that you know how to configure AetherSX2 on entry-level mobiles you can enjoy your favorite titles. Do not forget that you can share your configuration below in comments and I remind you that it would help me a lot if you share this tutorial with your friends and family through your social networks.
