Recommended drivers to use with yuzu. It’s strongly recommended to update drivers for both the integrated and dedicated GPUs.

Windows 10/11:

NVIDIA Geforce (desktop) 551.23: GeForce Game Ready Driver | 551.23 | Windows 10 64-bit, Windows 11 | NVIDIA

NVIDIA Geforce (desktop) 551.23: GeForce Game Ready Driver | 551.23 | Windows 10 64-bit, Windows 11 | NVIDIA

AMD Radeon 24.1.1:

If you have an AMD laptop with Nvidia dedicated graphics, and updating both drivers doesn’t solve the issue, follow this: Unable to launch Vulkan apps/game on notebooks with AMD Radeon iGPUs | NVIDIA

Intel Gen 12 graphics (Xe/ARC) Intel® Arc™ & Iris® Xe Graphics - Windows*

EoL (deprecated) Intel Gen 9/9.5/11 graphics (HD/UHD 500/600): Intel® 7th-10th Gen Processor Graphics - Windows*

Intel laptop/prebuilt users with old driver versions will have to follow this tutorial:

Old Intel Macs with Radeon GPUs:


AMD: mesa-git. RADV is recommended, but AMDVLK is a valid alternative.
Force AMDGPU on older 1st and 2nd gen GCN products to get Vulkan support: AMDGPU - ArchWiki
Intel: mesa-git.
Nvidia: Use what your distribution offers. Proprietary driver is required for yuzu. (edited)

Nvidia GPU users only:
Follow the image below for the Nvidia control panel.

Greetings . Crash team racing nitro fueled. Significant performance and stability degradation from version 2228 onwards. In version 2227 and earlier, everything is going fine. Is it possible to find out the specific reason for this behavior and is it realistic to fix it yourself?

How’s the performance on Vulkan?

On vulkan fps is stable only when you are standing still, it is worth getting under way and strong friezes immediately begin. All this is observed starting with build 2228 and newer, if you drop the exe file 2227 with a replacement in a folder with 2228 and newer, then everything works fine. I think the problem is in the exe file and changes in it that have occurred since version 2228

A dev confirmed it to be an issue, hopefully a fix will be released soon.

I played pokemon lets go pikachu but after the game succesfully launched it shows only a white screen with background theme song of pokemon lets go pikachu.

How can i fix this issue.

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Your GPU hardware only supports OpenGL version 4.3.0. Yuzu now requires OpenGL 4.6.0 and above.
  • Enabling Async GPU emulation is recommended as it can improve the performance of many games.

Update GPU Driver.

I have done all the things you said but after that whenever i double click the game yuzu crashes.

Use Vulkan for Intel GPU, if it is not working try without Mods, and you are using a very old Yuzu Early Access, get latest Yuzu Early Access 2254 or newer, latest Yuzu Mainline 834.

If you click a game, the game might go crash on Vulkan. Mine got froze…
My Specs:
Intel(R) Core™ i3-8130U CPU @ 2.20GHz 2.21 GHz
Aspire C24 - Acer

Make sure you’re running the latest driver for the integrated GPU.

Updated recommended drivers, added bootcamp and out of support modified drivers for Radeon cards.
