Pokemon Sun Lag on GTX 1060 and I7 Processor

Issue - I am only getting 15-18 FPS in Pokemon Sun

Details - I have a somewhat good setup and I am wondering why I am lagging so much on Pokemon Sun and I am wondering if there is a way to fix that.

  • Operating System:
  • CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz 2.60GHz
  • GPU: Geforce GTX 1060
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): Citra Nightly
  • Game: Pokemon Sun

WOW! My friend has a decade old pc with Core i3 540 with 4gb ram and even then, it constantly runs with 15fps. You really need to check your pc. Your ram?

Citra is currently in very early stages of development. Games usually run less than full-speed even on the best computers. Expect bugs and glitches to appear in most games. Many features for a more stable emulation are still in the works. For any major updates, please visit our Homepage.

Try getting the Canary version, that should help you a little bit.

OK thanks for telling me

16gbs of ram if that helps

More RAM wouldn’t really help. Citra is not that memory intensive. You’ll want a CPU with high single core performance to get the most out of Citra.

i have a MSI Laptop with i7 7700HQ and 2,8Ghz Boost 3,8 Ghz

When i play with Citra Canary i have min. 25 FPS and max 50 FPS (with Charger!!)

You have a Laptop i know this from HQ Version.Play it with Charger you become more FPS :slight_smile:

This depends on your power settings in Windows.
You can get the same effect without plugging it in by setting your power savings to “Maximum Performance”

Or enable Maximum CPU Power (Windows), set it to 100. See how to here.
