Wanted to play Minecraft today randomly, but oh wait! My 980Ti can't run it?

Xaphiir

I used to host Minecraft servers for the community and figured it'd be fun to relive some fun moments! I just reinstalled my OS a few days ago to have a clean start so i was searching for some games. I'd assume my i7 4790K @ 4.4GHz & GTX 980Ti would be enough to run Minecraft.. but this is what i get.

 

I get around 150 FPS on the highest settings with only 30% GPU usage for about 2 minutes then the game get's REALLY gittery, freezing then unfreezing extremely quickly. You can see it on the graphs where it only uses 20% of my GPU for a good half-second then goes to 0%. No other game i have installed does this.. only Minecraft? I have reinstalled Java and Video drivers but I've not got a clue.

Sounds to me like it could be a CPU issue. Have you run other (more CPU intensive) games for as long as you've run Minecraft? Could be the OC being unstable.

I have. I have run games like BF4 and Crysis 3 at maximum settings with no problem.

For around the same amount of time as when you run minecraft? Have you monitored the CPU usage of any of them by chance?

I have, usually around 100% GPU ( sometimes going under ) and if i'm remembering right, not too high on CPU.

To be fair, Minecraft is an unoptimized pile of crap.

Welp I just fixed it. Give it to Minecraft to only be using 1GB of my RAM. Allocated 6GB and fixed ( so far ).

And I agree, So far Minecraft.. a game with 16x16 textures for a blocky world is running at 100 FPS on a $2500 computer.. I'd expect.. more.

Minecraft is CPU bound.

True. But a 4790K should be a little better than 100 FPS on a game like this, Kinda killing it for me now.

If I remember correctly, it runs on one core.

Also. If you change the textures or add mods, the game runs worse. 

It is not a well made game.

That's what I had thought too, upon further inspection it seems to acknowledge the others and work off them.

I never have high single core usage when playing. But that could just be task manager not knowing what is happening.

Is the CPU usage spread out across the cores?

Not exactly sure, but after that derpy Java fix, it seems to have shot up to 70% CPU usage.
