So! Im playing minecraft 1.7.4 and i have huge fps spikes. From about 250 fps to 20 fps and it makes game unplayable, so i am here to maybe fix that problem, because it must be problem with my PC
So: here's my rig:
CPU: AMD FX 8120 Eight-Core 3.1Ghz
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 1GB
RAM: 4 gb ( 3.25 usable)
OS: Win 7 32-bit ultimate
HDD: Seagate something: 1TB
I have read about AMD FX 8120 and looks like it's full of crap
But i hope there is a way to fix my fps problem to minecraft.
Same problem goes to CounterStrike: Global Offensive too. From very start before i updated my bios i couldn't even launch it and had to use OrochiCEG. My cs:go just crashed PC
Now it's fine, but has like 150-20 fps too. I wonder why? PC specs is good, but yeah. CPU
Umm i hope there is a fix possible for it too, cuz i have checked google and hadn't found anything useful or working for my case.
I hope here's someone who could help
Thanks and best regards, Elviss Sikerins!
Minecraft is mostly single-threaded. Sure it uses extra cores for certain things, but when you've got a lot happening on screen, it's all done single-threaded. Think mobs in a spawner trap. Crowds of players. TNT going off. Your 8-core CPU is not very helpful in this situation.
- Overclocking will certainly help here.
If you're running Minecraft in 32-Bit Java (Which you are, since you're on 32-Bit Windows) then you're going to run into lots of problems at far view distances. A) Crashes B) Lag Spikes C) Crazy FPS drops until restarting the client
- The solution here is to lower the view distance, or get 64-Bit Windows and Java.
GTX 560 is perfectly fine for Minecraft.
I've got a GTX 550 Ti, and have no problems with it.
Power Saving features can sometimes lead to undesirable performance. Try disabling all power saving features and test it, you can do this through the BIOS and NVCP. Read the manual for your motherboard to see the power saving features, and in the NVCP disable any V-Sync/Adaptive V-Sync or other features that may adjust the clock speed or throttle it.
OptiFine is a very nice mod, but you shouldn't even need it to stay above 60FPS if you set things correctly.
FPS will obviously always drop down very low during big events like 100K+ TNT detonating and hundreds of mobs stuck in a trap, but generally moving around and mining/building/killing mobs shouldn't drop low with your hardware.
