I started playing a modpack called skyfactory 4, I had good frames around 90-120 fps, now I have 1-5 fps out of nowhere. I pressed f3 and noticed it didnt and wasnt using my graphics card, I even looked at my task manager and noticed it was using 30-50% of my cpu and 0% of my gpu. I know you go into the nvidia control panel and change the intergrated graphics but thats only for laptop. I know people in other forums saying "minecraft is heavilly based on cpu" but then tell me why when I load into vanilla minecraft 1.16.1, I click f3 I see that it recognizes my gpu and cpu, and uses 30-50% of my gpu and 10-30% of my cpu. If someone could help me out figuring out why and how to make my nvidia 960 graphics card to work with my modded minecraft, that would be great.
So here's a list of a few things that I've noticed in your first screenshot:
- Lower your render distance. Even more powerful PCs sometimes have trouble rendering 32 chunks smoothly.
- You may want to allocate more than 2GB of RAM to Minecraft. More RAM does not equal more FPS, but I would say that it's fine in this case to add an extra GB or two to the game because you're using a lot of mods and you don't want to run into "Out of memory"-type crashes.
- Are you running Minecraft in a virtual machine rather than on your original operating system? Most VMs are not made for games or other graphically intense programs and you'll experience far worse performance while using them because of that. I've never used VMWare before, but according to this post, joining the openSUSE forums and asking how to enable your GPU in VMWare seems to be a good solution to try.
omg, ive seen this so much in other forums this is so annoying, no im not running a vm for minecraft i dont even have it installed, memory doesnt matter anymore i usually have it on 12 gb of ram, i was running perfectly with 32 chunks before.
