I have a HP Envy All in One, running Windows 8 I believe. I use mods such as optifine, potion counter, direction hud and togglesneak. Anyways, whenever I'm running around regularly, I get around 60 fps, whenever I start to PvP, it drops down to around 30 to 40. Anyways, how could I end . up getting more FPS? Would I need to upgrade anything? Need to get a new PC (because I'm most likely buying one soon anyways) Just let me know, thanks.

  • What year is the computer? Or model number?

  • Couldnt the problem be related to your network speed? If you get 60FPS when playing the game solo, but it drops when you play PVP with other people (I'm assuming connected to a server) the speed of your network would then play a big factor in how fast you can get data from the server.

  • @KyleRone Frames per second is not a network problem, it is a hardware problem. You don't lose frames for having a slow network connection. You lose frames when your system encounters a need for more processing power.

  • But wouldnt the speed of a network still impact performance? If the server cant handle the load, it will cause lag even if the user has good enough hardware to run at a high fps setting.

Without knowing your PC specs it is hard to tell. But still here are some ways:

Optifine: Available at : Here

Optifine is a tool which lets you set your graphics as per your fps requirements.

My Rating: 10/10

Gamebooster: Available at : Here

Gamebooster is a third party program which will optimize your computer for gaming for a limited period of time until you turn it back to Normal mode, it stops all background programs which are not needed to run the game, while keeping your Computer drivers and system32 files running to keep your computer stable which will give the game more CPU to run which will result in a faster game, it's a free download and its a small file size and is very user friendly.

My Rating: 7/10

Some Tips To Keep Your PC in Shape

  • Always scan your pc once a week so that there aren't any threats causing your computer to slow down.

  • Clean the temporary files :

To do this:

  1. Press Windows+R on your keyboard in order to start "Run".

  2. Type "%temp%". (Without " )

  3. Delete all the files there.

Don't worry, they're temporary files which take your storage up.

  • Update your pc more quickly.

When your OS recieves an update it's only for YOUR security, So, update as frequently as possible.

Optional Ways

  • FPS++ Or another (+).

I don't know much about it but here give it a go : Fps++(+)

  • Defrag

Search it up on google.

  • Do not play Minecraft On Fullscreen.

Hey, Hey i just forgot!

Update Your Drivers

In Order to do that you may look up on your driver provider's website.


Thank You


This is what I know of Minecraft and its performance:

  1. Minecraft is a CPU intensive game (duh, look at those graphics) because it runs using Java which is a CPU hog. So upgrading the CPU to have more cores or a faster clock rate would help a lot

  2. But the graphics card does matter to a point, having a dedicated chip for graphics processing should increase FPS

  3. Minecraft has the ability to use a LOT of RAM, when a chunk gets loaded into memory, it never gets removed, until you restart the game. Having a decent pool of ram and at a decent speed should help, but not as much as the first two

How to achieve those FPS GAINZ:

  1. Lower graphics settings, like render distance etc.
  2. Overclock your CPU, (though not possible for your computer)

If you are hosting PvP on your computer your going to experience more of a performance drop, because your computer has to process everything. Which can also lead to an FPS drop.

  • Could you explain how CPU intensity is related to frame drops? As far as I know, update cycles and frame cycles are separated. This means that a decrease in update cycles shouldn't result in a decrease of frames. I could be wrong though ofcourse...

  • @D-Inventor I'm just a little confused with what you are asking, but I'll try to answer. So In a CPU intensive game (meaning your CPU is relied on to do all of the graphics rendering and calculations), having a higher clock rate on your CPU means that it can do the calculations faster. If your CPU gets an influx of stuff to do, the performance will decrease, and the performance of all processes will decrease until it can catch up

  • "when a chunk gets loaded into memory, it never gets removed" - are you sure Minecraft has a memory leak this severe? I've never run into this issue

  • @SPYBUG96 "meaning your CPU is relied on to do all of the graphics rendering and calculations" - this is certainly not true for Minecraft, it does use a GPU for rendering, otherwise swapping GPUs would not make a difference (when it definitely does)

  • @phflack Sorry, that answer should be taken in the context of the person who asked the question in the comments. I used a different example to explain a point that doesn't relate to minecraft to better explain the point
