    posted a message on Is this enough to run minecraft with shaders?

    So, every once and a while I come across a post on some forum somewhere about how they can get better frame rates and when the responses usually include someone touting how they are getting well over 100 FPS with a computer with stats very similar to mine. And although I'm usually running at least 50-60 myself, when I put the shaders on it drops to 10-12 FPS. So, my question is, am I getting the best performance out of my hardware or what exactly do I need to tweak to squeeze out some more power. 

     

    Here's my computer stats:

     

    Intel Core i7-65000U @ 2.59GHz

    8 GB ram

    64-bit Windows 10

    nVidia  GeForce 940M

    Java 8

     

    These are the java arguments:

    -XX:+DisableExplicitGC, -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC, -XX:MaxTenuringThreshold=15, -XX:MaxGCPauseMillis=30, -XX:-UseGCOverheadLimit, -XX:+UseBiasedLocking, -XX:SurvivorRatio=8, -XX:TargetSurvivorRatio=90, -XX:+UseCompressedOops, -XX:+OptimizeStringConcat, -XX:+AggressiveOpts, -XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=2048m, -XX:+UseCodeCacheFlushing, -XX:SoftRefLRUPolicyMSPerMB=20000, -XX:HeapDumpPath=MojangTricksIntelDriversForPerformance_javaw.exe_minecraft.exe.heapdump, -Xms2024m, -Xmx4024m, -Duser.language=en

     

    I should also mention I've got optifine and betterfps installed.

     

    50-60 FPS is nothing to sneeze at, especially on a laptop. But I can't help feel like I'm missing something to enhance my experience. Any suggestions on how I can get that higher frame rate with shaders would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

     

    Update: No mods expect Optifine and BetterFPS on 1.11 and a smaller window size I was able to get up to 20 FPS with shaders on, but still not where I want to be.
