Anyone know the problem or any solutions?

Minecraft is far more CPU intensive than GPU. What does a standardized benchmark, such as 3DMark, say your performance is compared to systems of your spec?

And no, that's a fairly mid range system, maybe lower-mid-range.

Looking at this data and I don't know what in game settings they used but at 1080p with a 580 and your processor they got 80 FPS average.

So depending on your in game settings and resolution for instance if you are playing on highest settings at 1440p or higher your numbers may be correct.


Minecraft runs almost everything on a single thread.  You are going to be bottlenecked by your processor in that game.

You can increase performance by reducing the view distance.  You can also try the Optifine mod, which can increase performance in some situations.
