Recently Mobile gaming is all raging around the world and smartphones such as the ASUS ROG Phone, Razer Phone and Xiaomi Black Shark are being introduced to attract gamers off the market. But, not all of us want or can have these gaming phones just to play the latest mobile games. If you aren’t on the latest Android device like the Samsung Galaxy S9, OnePlus 6, or Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S with the latest flagship chip like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, then games like PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds (PUBG) can have trouble running. But we got a solution to that, all credit goes to GFX Tool developed by XDA Member tsoml, you can easily improve the performance of your mobile. To improve your gaming experience in PUBG just follow the tutorial below!
(Note: You will need root access for version 0.7. )
Update: The frame rate measuring has been fixed and can confirm that it gives an average of 36 FPS, with consistent 40-60FPS at nearly all times.
Improve your FPS in PUBG using GFX Tool
Step 1 – Installing GFX Tool
You’ll need to install and set up GFX Tool. Simply follow the Google Play Store link below and install it.
Step 2 – Configuring GFX Tool
Use the image below and set each parameter as shown. We’ll be explaining what these do down below.
This is an important part in setting up the application. If you choose version 0.7, the application will ask for root access. Though version 0.6 is still the latest version released. So a quick check of your game version is recommended before trying running it through GFX Tool.
The game can run at 1920×1080 depending on your device but setting the resolution to 960×540 leads a smoother downscale while also greatly reducing the number of pixels needing to be rendered.
PUBG has got a lot of graphics options available to users. You can enable super high fidelity graphics here that aren’t normally accessible, so you can give that a try if you want. Setting usual graphics to smooth helps to squeeze out some more FPS.
You’ll want to set this to 60 unless you’re trying to avoid thermal throttling. The higher the value the better the fluidity, but the more power is needed.
Step 3 – Launch PUBG!
Now, all you need to do is hit “accept.” The accept button will switch to a run game button, so then all you have to do is launch the game and you’re good to go. Once the game launches, you should see that your settings have applied as the resolution will be lower. Queue up a game and give it a test drive, you should notice it’s much smoother than before. Now you can also Play PUBG game using gamepad controller.
