Y570 - Game (Minecraft) lags when playing

Hey, I have the lenovo y570 and it lags like crazy, Can anyone help pleas. It drops to 20fps, while my fan is blowing like crazy. My computer is getting overheated while I play minecraft. This shouldn't be an issue with a "gaming laptop"

Please check if It's not detecting it as a program/game that would require the video card because it's a Java based application. Two ways of fixing this is to either:


1) Set it in the nvidia control panel to always use the video card when running java (not recommended).
2) Always start minecraft by right-clicking on minecraft.exe and selecting the nvidia video card (since it has the Intel graphics as default).

Also make sure you have 64-bit java installed as well, since I had crashing issues due to 32-bit java being used for it. I would also recommend using the optifine mod; it gives you more control over the settings, enables hd textures, and it improves performance regardless of how powerful your machine is.

 

Hope this helps! Do post us back for further queries.

I also tried using MSI afterburner but it a little drops to 30fps. This computer should be able to maintain around 100fps without my vent going so loud.

Re: Y570 - Game (Minecraft) lags when playing

That may be Java Machine's or itself Minecraft's issue, check version of your JRE, update it from Oracle.

Also try start with java command line with parameters: -Xms2G -Xmx2G -XXSmiley TongueermSize=128m

You can set them somewhere in game launcher.
