Mali GPUs have always had performance issues with Citra. This will improve a lot with a Vulkan backend, which is not in development. You can try out WIP Vulkan builds on Citra’s discord server if you’re interested in giving it a go to see how well it works on your device.

You mind giving me a walk through as I have no idea how that would work.

Are you in Citra already? If not, here’s the link: Citra
The instruction on how to set it all up are listed in the Vulkan testing channel’s pinned comments. It’s nothing too complicated.

I’ll give it a go. Let you know how it goes
