Are you still having the same problem? The Minecraft authentication servers were down earlier today and that can temporarily cause what you described.

Your situation sounds the same as one of my friend's so I'm going to explain what he did to fix the FPS drop. I'm not sure if this will work for you but there won't be any harm in trying.
What my friend did was download and use 32-bit Java for minecraft instead of 64-bit Java. I'm not sure why this works but I believe it has something to do with Windows 10 and the integrated Intel graphics drivers. If your unsure of how to try this then follow these steps. (There are different methods of doing this, this is just one way.)
Method 1: Uninstall 64-bit Java and install 32-bit Java
- Go into control panel and uninstall Java.
- Download and install 32-bit Java from here. (Choose either Windows Online or Windows Offline but not Windows Offline (64-bit))
- Download the old minecraft launcher. This is important because the new minecraft launcher comes with its own version of Java. The old launcher can be downloaded here.
- Open the old launcher.
- Cross fingers
- Click Play
Method 2: Install 64-bit Java and 32-bit Java together and manually set minecraft to use 32-bit Java
- Download 32-bit Java from here and follow the steps below. (Choose either Windows Online or Windows Offline but not Windows Offline (64-bit))
- Be sure to check "Change destination folder". (The reason for this is to find the path where Java 32-bit is going to be installed.)
- Write down the destination folder in a notepad or something. Then click next. (Don't click Change)
- Once Java is finished installing, open the minecraft launcher and click New Profile.
- Name the profile 32-bit Java or whatever you want.
- Under Java Settings (Advanced), check the checkbox labeled Executable, delete everything in the textbox next to it, and type in the path where 32-bit Java was installed and add \bin\javaw.exe to the end of it. (For example C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_91\bin\javaw.exe)
- Uncheck JVM Arguments unless you know what your doing.
- Save Profile
- Cross fingers
- Press Play
- Let us know if it worked.

As mentioned above, installing optifine may help.
If your still having problems, I have an idea but just want to confirm something.
Can you open a command prompt and type:
and post the output of that command?
It might tell you "java is an unknown command", or something similar.

64-bit. It's in the dxdiag.
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit (10.0, Build 10586) (10586.th2_release_sec.160422-1850)
Jun 21, 2016AJFerguson posted a message on Windows 10 - Extreme FPS drop when playing Minecraft on 64-bit Java, but not 32-bit JavaPosted in: Java Edition Support
Hello. Whenever my friend launches Minecraft with 64-bit Java he gets a huge FPS drop to the point that the game is unplayable (0-2 FPS). However, if he runs the game with 32-bit Java, his FPS is acceptable.
He wants to play modded Minecraft so he needs 64-bit Java because of the memory limitation of 32-bit Java. Here is a link to his dxdiag: http://pastebin.com/7Aqs5anE
Any ideas on the cause and solution to this problem?
Jul 2, 2014I think I may have found the correct driver. I would advise making a restore point before installing this.Posted in: Java Edition Support
Jul 2, 2014Can you post a screenshot of the list at Device Manager > Display Devices > Right click AMD Radeon HD 7670M and select properties > Update Driver > Browse My computer for driver software > Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computerPosted in: Java Edition Support
Jul 2, 2014Is your model # either Satellite L840D-BT2N22, Satellite L840D-BT2N22, or Satellite L840D-BT3N22? If so these are the correct drivers. (Only download this if I listed your model.) http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/downloads/TC70174400D.exePosted in: Java Edition Support

The problematic frame is leaning me towards an old graphics card issue. I can't confirm that without the DxDiag.
Jeraby, please follow the instructions that gerbil posted. http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1742903-obtaining-a-dxdiag-log/
Jul 2, 2014You can try to update your graphics drivers again here. (These are drivers from HP. Please double check that the computer displayed on the download page is yours.)Posted in: Java Edition Support
I am terribly sorry for putting you in that terrible situation earlier. I am glad everything is working how it was again.
Jul 2, 2014If all else fails then enter the Advanced Boot Options screen with F8 again. Choose Safe Mode with Networking. Windows should start.Posted in: Java Edition Support
- Navigate to Device Manager (Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers > Device Manager)
- Navigate to Display Adapters
- Right click AMD 760G and select Properties
- Click the Driver tab
- Click Rollback Driver
- Reboot Windows
Jul 2, 2014Roll back your drivers with the instructions I posted previously. That will at least get your system working back how it was again.Posted in: Java Edition Support
If you want, you can update your drivers from Toshiba here. Input your model or serial number, and then choose AMD Display Driver.
Jul 2, 2014If you can't boot into Windows then here is what you need to do.Posted in: Java Edition Support
When the computer is starting up constantly press the F8 key. If you see the Windows Starting screen again shutdown and try again. In the Advanced Boot Options screen choose Last Known Good Configuration.
Jul 2, 2014I did a quick Google search for A Block to the Past and found the texture pack supplied with it is outdated. What you can do is create a new profile in the launcher and change the Minecraft version to 1.4 or you can convert the texture pack into a resource pack with this tool. (I can't guarantee the tool will work.)Posted in: Java Edition Support
