Exceptionally poor Minecraft performance on my laptop

1 minute ago, pythonmegapixel said:

Not a setting I've ever had to use before, could you let me know where it is?

Is it in task manager or in Minecraft?

in minecraft. this may help: https://cubedhost.com/help/en/articles/1648388-how-do-i-allocate-more-memory-to-my-minecraft-launcher-client-side

 

every launcher kinda has it's own way to change it.

I have an HP laptop with a Ryzen5+Vega8, a 256GB Samsung SSD, 8GB RAM (all of this is default from the factory; I haven't upgraded anything)

 

Today I noticed that I'm getting REALLY bad performance in Minecraft Forge 12.2 (with a few mods). Like, average below 15fps. I know it's not my hardware not being up to the task, as in the past I've been able to get 50fps or more in exactly the same game. It's also not getting any hotter than normal, nor do I have any more background tasks than normal (just Spotify and Discord, both of which i usually have open)

 

The only settings I've changed is capping the framerate at 30fps (yes that's bearable for me) in the hope it might improve things.

 

The rest of the machine seems to be running at normal speed and Malwarebytes finds nothing...

 

Any ideas?

Thanks for reading all this by the way!

By the way, my desktop is a docked laptop. Get over it, No seriously, I have an exterrnal monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, ethernet and cooling fans all connected. Using it feels no different to a desktop, it works for several hours if the power goes out, and disconnecting just a few cables gives me something I can take on the go. There's enough power for all games I play and it even copes with basic (and some not-so-basic) video editing. Give it a go - you might just love it.

check and make sure minecraft has enough ram allocation, had issues with that in the past.

Much appreciated. Have boosted the RAM allocation from 2 to 4GB and it now seems to be running more smoothly. Thanks!
