Simple64 has higher system requirements than most N64 emulators. This project requires a fairly good CPU with a GPU that supports Vulkan 1.1 at the very least. However, if you're still having some performance issues, try unchecking "SynchronousRDP" in Settings->Core and Video Settings->ParaLLEl Video. Although some games require this to be enabled, disabling it can increase your FPS.
