How do I enable VT to make my game run faster on GTarcade Desktop?

12/21/18
1. Why do I need to enable VT?
Hardware-assisted virtualization will allow all apps to run much faster by allocating more resources and processing times. Virtualization technology permits mobile games run smoother and much faster on GTarcade Desktop. If this feature is disabled in your computer, you may feel slower and less responsive.

Most of mainstream Intel and AMD CPUs support this feature.

2. How can I find out if my PC supports virtualization and enable it?

1. Download a 3rd-party tool: LeoMoon CPU-V to detect your CPU’s capability.
