I’m playing Ultrasun Moon with Citra, and the FPS is between 16-30.
Intermittent breaks occur frequently.

I set the speed to 105%
The frame goes back and forth between 18 and 27 ms.

How can I smooth out gameplay with this specification?

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

Hm, since you have AMD GPU then pretty much the only way would be to install Linux where it has better OpenGL drivers for it. And since you are on a laptop you can’t swap with Nvidia which you can on desktop(graphics card change is very easy to do).

Though you could try running on the Intel HD 4000 instead. Make sure drivers are updated, the latest is 5069 on Windows 10. You might need to install manually since OEMs block Intel installer, but you can follow this guide to install: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

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

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.
