Bluestacks 2 VS LeapDroid gaming benchmark

Antutu benchmark coming soon!

It's very long time since Bluestacks is very popular on the internet and it was soon replaced by Nox App Player and MEmu from China. But Bluestacks still the fastest one although it have some annoying ads.

And in May 26 2016, LeapDroid was first announced on XDA and claimed to be the fastest one at that time.

And now here is 2017, let see if LeapDroid can beat Bluestacks 2 or not.


  • Testing hardware and software:

CPU: Intel i5-3470S with Turbo Boost enabled / Intel Pentium G630
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7730 with driver 17.4.1
RAM: 6GB
OS: Windows 10 Creator Update 15063

LeapDroid version 1.8.0.0 modded by myself: http://max20091.blogspot.com/2016/11/leapdroid-1800-modded-by-max20091.html
Bluestacks 2 version 2.6.107.7904

Comparing between LeapDroid and Bluestacks 2:

1. Honkai Impact 3rd (崩坏3) [Mihoyo]
Review this app: Using Unity 5, have very good graphic such as HDR. reflection, high quality model design. This game have no multi-core support.

Using Intel i5-3470S CPU
LeapDroid: running fine with a little bit shuttering, have some graphic bugs
Bluestacks: mostly 60+ FPS

Using Intel Pentium G630 CPU
LeapDroid: same result as above
Bluestacks: Heavy shuttering, almost unplayable.

2.Battle Girl High School (バトルガール ハイスクール) [COLOPL]
Review this app: Using Unity 4, fine design and does not require dGPU, eat a lot of CPU. Partially support multi-core (20% on the second core).

Using Intel i5-3470S CPU
LeapDroid: running fine with a little bit shutter
Bluestacks: running flawlessly and usually able to reach 60 FPS easily

Using Intel Pentium G630 CPU
LeapDroid: same result as above
Bluestacks: A little bit more shuttering than LeapDroid because Bluestacks showing screen use too much CPU

3. Mobius Final Fantasy [Square Enix]
Review this app: Using Unity 5, high quality graphic and heavily depend on GPU.

Using Intel Pentium G630 CPU
LeapDroid: running fine, a little bit shutter
Bluestacks: Heavy shuttering due to Bluestacks showing screen use too much CPU

4. Need For Speed: No Limits [EA]
Review this app: AAA graphic, very good app for testing performance.
Running with same graphic settings on both emulators.

Using Intel i5-3470s CPU
LeapDroid: running fine with very rare shutter, mostly 60+ FPS
Bluestacks: mostly running at 60+ FPS with no shutter

5. Antutu benchmark
Coming soon!

Early conclusion: LeapDroid is running very fast if you have a low–mid range computers and Bluestacks is for high end computers.
LeapDroid doesn't use any extra CPU cores like Bluestacks so you can use LeapDroid for CPU with 2 cores. But Bluestacks recently using VirtualBox instead of QEmu and using newer LayerCake so it run much faster than LeapDroid in term of high-end computer gaming with many unused cores.
