In this guide, I will tell you how to launch Minecraft on a discrete (more powerful) video card of your laptop, which will increase the performance of the game, respectively raise FPS.
Just the other day, I got access to a rather wretched Dell 5570 laptop, immediately after installing Windows 10, this laptop launched Minecraft on a built – in video card, which in most cases negatively affects the performance of the game.
So, if you have a laptop and you are sure that it has 2 graphics card (1 built into the processor, and the second more powerful soldered on the motherboard), then this guide can help you, with it you will learn how to launch Minecraft for the second, morePowerful video card.
Regardless of the situation, I recommend checking in advance if you have the latest version of the drivers for your discrete video card (AMD or NVIDIA), as well as Java is also updated and is it used to be used by the game. (Some launches use their outdated version)
1) Check what video card your game works on.
Launch Minecraft and click F3, on the right you will see the information:
From above you will see the Java version on which the game works, in this screenshot it is 1.8.0_281 64bit, at the moment this is the latest version.
A little below we see information about the screen, the resolution of 1920×1080 and our Intel UHD 620 video card, this is a weaker video card integrated into the processor.
2) Open the parameters of the system, select the display, find and select graphics settings.
3) Press the review button, find the executable Java file.exe, I have it at C: \ Program Files \ Java \ Jre1.8.0_281 \ bin
Minecraft works on Java, so you need to choose a video card for Java, and not for the launcher of the game. However, if you have a license and licensed launcher, then Windows itself can run the game on the right video card.
Here is a very important point, earlier all versions of the game worked on Java Jre 8, which could be installed in the system, after which the launches used it, in which case the address to Java.Exe will be approximately here C: \ Program Files \ Java \ Jre1.8.0_281 \ bin
But starting with Minecraft 1.17.1 game began to use different versions of Java, 1.16.5 or more old still use Java 8, 1.17 uses JDK 16, and 1.18 already jdk 17. Now licensed, and all relevant pirate launches are forced to download Java on their own, switch between versions, thus the location of Java.EXE will depend on the launcher, for example in the Rulaunter Java is located in C: \ Users \ Vasures \ Appdata \ Roaming \.rulauncher \ java, respectively, indicate the guide, you need precisely Java data.exe, or forcibly in the launcher to indicate systematically (manually) installed Java.
4) We change the video card to a productive.
5) We launch the game and check how you can see the video card has changed:
What increase in performance will be, and whether there will be at all?
It all depends on your laptop, or rather, how powerful a discrete video card is, on my wretched laptop, an Intel UHD 620 and AMD Radeon 530 is installed, both of these graphics cards are almost the same power, therefore FPS is almost not different, AMD wins with shadeers, it wins without shaadersIntel.
You can look for your video cards on the test website And to see their result in an artificial test, so Intel UHD 620 gains 920 points, and R530 – 925, nevertheless, R530 has 4 GB built – in memory of memory, while UHD620 uses for these purposes the operational memory of the laptop (which is not so and which is not so and which is not so and whichnot so fast).
Other tips to increase FPS Minecraft on a laptop:
I think that you have already tried different mods like Optifine and other mods for optimization, if not, then ahead, this is the first advice.
1) advice, do not play when working from the battery, or configure power plans for maximum performance.
When working from the battery, the laptop saves the battery charge as much as possible, therefore it reduces the performance of the game.
2) Make sure that the laptop does not overheat if your laptop howls like a plane and after a short time the game you notice that the game has become worse, it may be a matter of overheating, the processor and video processor reduce the load so that you do not fail. If so, then you should at least blow a laptop, but it is better to contact the service so that it is cleaned and changed thermal grease. (especially if the laptop is not new).
3) Set the maximum performance.
These settings can influence, but may not affect the performance of the game, but it is worth trying
To get started, turn on Max performance here:
Next, open the system parameters – andgt; Nutrition and sleep mode – andgt; Additional power parameters
Change additional power parameters
Find and install maximum performance for the processor and your video cards
Well, the last desperate attempt to increase FPS is to lower the game resolution.
Laptops have a relatively small screen, but more and less new ones have a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. You can lower the game resolution to 1600×900 or even 1366×768 (try other options), reduce the drawing range to 8 cans (or less), set the graphics by quickly. At 1600×900, game andquot;Stretchandquot; The full screen, moreover, does not look much worse than 1920×1080, but your PC is easier.
