    Update: I have been experimenting with a lot of things, but none of them seemed to help me. I reinstalled windows completely, booted up a modpack, it runs on 200+ fps. Thanks again for your help, it gave me some insight into this topic, well I'm off to enjoy some minecraft.

    posted a message on Minecraft RAM usage

    Thanks for the advice, I tried experimenting by lowering the memory allocated. My java version is newest 64-bit aswell. On 8Gb allocation i get 40-50 fps, on 6Gb the fps drops down to 30. Minecraft is installed on SSD with more than 10Gb of free space left, and my computer is virus-free. With that said, I remember playing around in system settings as recommended by some random youtube tutorials on how to decrease memory usage or something, can't really remember, it was quite a while ago, though i recall it had to do something with superfetch. Memory is not limited in msconfig either. Its kind of hard to imagine that I can run like 99% of triple A title games on highest settings, while minecraft is being in that 1%. I definately have the hardware to run it, why can other people play the modpack even with lower specs is a question that leads me to think that there is a problem with something else regarding my system.

    posted a message on Minecraft RAM usage

    So I'm playing minecraft modpacks through twitch launcher and I allocate around 8Gb of memory to it since my system has 16Gb of memory total. When playing, I have like 40fps or lower, I mean these modpacks are beefy, but so is my Pc. While I'm in-game, task manager shows low GPU and CPU usage, but memory usage is around 90%, so I imagine the bottleneck that causes lags is my memory, but why? I read up on modpacks before playing to see the recommended amount of memory allocation and do as instructed. Thats why I feel like the lag is not caused by insufficient amount of RAM allocated. If minecraft is only using up to 8Gb of memory, why is my memory usage almost at 90%? That means system is eating up the remaining 7-8 Gb? Why?
