Recommended hardware for PPSSPP

Devices to play on

Android devices

Nearly any recent phone will work just fine.

NVIDIA Shield TV is probably still the best Android TV machine (yes, in 2024).


Nearly any PC made the last 15 years will have little to no issue running PPSSPP. It can be a good idea to upgrade your graphics drivers, if possible.


Any M1 or later Mac will run it fine. It also works on many Intel Macs but has issues on Radeon GPUs on Mac, unfortunately.
