Minecraft still doesn't use dedicated GPU after java.exe and javaw.exe are set to high performance

Jump to solution

 

I have been playing minecraft recently and noticed that it is running slowly for the computer I have. I've tried everything it seems but I can't get minecraft to use my dedicated GPU

 

Acer Nitro 5 an515-42 R5ED

 

AMD Ryzen 5 2500U Mobile Processor with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics

AMD's Website for Processor

 

AMD RADEON RX 560X(4GB)

AMD's Website for GPU

 

8GB Ram

 

Here are pictures showing that it is set to high performance and still using Vega graphics

go to "advanced option"

there should be "switchable Graphics" for youthere should be "switchable Graphics" for you
you set this to "maximize performance"

show me your "switchable GPU"-listing in Powerplan

should be "maximize performance" and not "optimal performance"

PC: R7 2700X @4.1GHz + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS

Thank you so much!

I feel like I looked everywhere for the answer.

I had no idea you had to go through there and set it as max performance instead of high performance.

Once again, Thank You!
