Fix Lag issues on LDPlayer

Android emulators are very popular among people. Many gamers prefer to play android games on their PCs rather than their phones or tablets for a variety of reasons. Whatever your reason for choosing android games emulators, your gameplay must be as smooth and responsive as possible. 

Lag issues can be very irritating, as they significantly deteriorate your performance and overall gameplay experience. That is why it is important to have an emulator that optimizes gameplay performance, making your gameplay experience truly enjoyable. 

The performance of the emulator can only be improved to a certain extent, as improvement largely depends on the performance and capacity of your computer. 

Update LDPlayer

Before you work on other possible fixes, it is best to first make sure you have the latest version of LDPlayer installed on your PC. 

Head on to the official website to download the latest version and update your software. You can download the latest version from within LDPlayer as well. To do so, simply click the menu button in the top-right corner of the window and select “Check for Update”.

Once you update LDPlayer, make sure you restart your PC so that the software changes can take place.

Enable VT on Your PC

Virtualization Technology (VT) is essentially the software that allows Android Emulators to run on Windows. VT provides LDPlayer with an independent environment and dedicated system resources.

Once you enable Virtualization Technology, it allows the android emulator to receive more resources from the operating system. With VT enabled, your games will run more smoothly and faster. Enabling VT can improve your gaming experience ten folds.

It is important to check whether Virtualization Technology or Vanderpool is compatible with your PC. You can do so easily using LeoMoon CPU-V to check if your CPU supports Hardware Virtualization.

If your PC is compatible with VT, you can go ahead and enable it from the BIOS menu. You can toggle the status of Virtualization Technology in the Processor Configuration menu under the Advanced tab. Save your changes in the BIOS and restart your PC.

When you run LDPlayer now, the Diagnostic Information under the menu button in the top-right corner will tell you whether or not Virtualization Technology has been enabled. By enabling VT, you should immediately see significant improvements to your gameplay performance.

Clear LDPlayer Cache


A common reason for LDPlayer to lag is due to the accumulated disk cache. Clearing cache in the LDPlayer is very easy and straightforward. 

Once you launch the LDPlayer, go to the settings from the top right corner of the homepage, navigate to Advanced Settings to find the option to Clear Disk Cache. Bear in mind that doing so will cause you to lose unsaved guest data, so it is best to link your game progress to a Google account to prevent data loss. 

After clearing the cache, restart LDPlayer and monitor for improvements to the overall experience.

Update and Reconfigure Graphic Card

Often an outdated graphics driver is the cause for lag. By just updating the driver, you can experience significant improvements. In case you are not familiar with updating drivers, a quick Google search can fix your worries. 

Once you update your graphics driver, you want to restart your computer to make sure the changes take place.

If your graphics card is already updated or updating it has not had any significant effect, you might want to consider reconfiguring your system graphic card. This will greatly enhance your system graphics and overall gameplay performance. 

A quick google search will help you identify the graphic card installed on your system and the available options to improve its performance. Depending on the graphic card you have, the procedure of configuring it will vary. 

As always, after making the changes, restart your computer and run LDPlayer to see the changes.

Reconfigure System Resources

In the unlikely scenario, your lag has still not improved despite turning on Virtualization Technology (VT), then reconfiguring the available RAM and CPU power allotted to LDPlayer may make the difference.

It is important to make these changes carefully so that you do not end up causing your PC to have more problems. The number of allotted CPU cores should not exceed your PC’s manufacturer specification, similarly do not allocate the entire RAM or a huge portion of it to your emulator.  

The system needs to have enough memory to be able to carry out necessary system processes.

To do so, simply launch LDPlayer and navigate to Settings and Advanced options. You can now allocate RAM and CPU resources as required from the respective dropdown menus. The greater the resources available to the LDPlayer, the smoother your gameplay experience will be.


Gameplay lag can be a nuisance, so being able to fix it with a few simple steps is all you need to get back to playing your best. LDPlayer is one of the most popular Android emulators, and we hope the fixes above will improve your gameplay experience.
