I recently installed minecraft and I noticed alot of FPS drops happening very commonly, while the CPU and the GPU arent fully utilized. I tried turning off some settings in the Nvidia controlpanel but that didnt do anything.

Here is a screenshot of both programs.

Minecraft and Res.Monitor

Any idea what I can do to fully utilize my resources for the game ?

  • What about settings in the game? Have you tried tweaking any of those?

Minecraft isn't... super well programmed, unfortunately it (mostly) only runs on a single core of your processor.

You seem to have a quad-core processor from your screenshot, 25% of that is one core fully utilized, so your CPU is maxed out on a single core. GPU usage is capped by your CPU (and minecraft isn't super GPU intensive anyway).

  • Funny tho, ive had the game before and it didnt have this issue. On the same computer, actually I changed my harddrive and its even faster now, so it makes no sense :D thanks anyway for the info, no multicore computing with minecraft i guess thats fun :D Commented May 2, 2018 at 15:14
