However, I have bumped up the amount of ram minecraft allocates. I did just do what you said with the visual boot…. processes… stuff… Not scrolling up for technical terms, and it appears to have worked its magic. Not having the gui when it loads seems kinda naked but i’ll get used to it.
Minecraft may be mind over matter however.
isaac i promise you on the other hand is not mind over matter. I get an insane amount of frame increase when i do it. No matter what science says about it. I have a nother friend whos laptop couldnt run isaac at any more then probably 4 frames per second. after doing this his runs it as fast as my friends desktop which can run it at full speed no problem.
I dont know what is causing it, but there is an increase.
You have any other “speed up my pc” esque tricks? I could actually use whatever I can get.
Generally, increasing the number of Cores windows runs on (The number of processors) usually increases speed more than anything else.
A few things you should get information is types of Processors.
APU, GPU and CPU
a CPU is a Computing Processing Unit, it’s used for Computing, GPU is for graphics and rendering, APU is basically a combination of both but by all means is in NO WAY BETTER. I would rather have a CPU than an APU.
an APU allocates part of your Computing power to your Graphic rendering power. Most APU’s are the AMD A-Series Processors.
If you have an APU and want to increase your power for games. Run less background applications and processes while you game… if you want it for faster applications. Don’t run so many visual objects, eitherway DEFINATELY turn your computer’s theme on classic mode for an APU.
even if you have an APU you may still install a GPU on your computer… however that’s rather difficult on laptops. I believe they have some USB GPU’s out there that aren’t really great, but they do boost graphical performance a bit.
If you REALLY wanna boost your pc, find out if your laptop has SATA or PATA connections for its hard drive. If SATA, I recommend buying a SSD, Solid State Drive. It can replace your current hard drive and is GOD SO FREAKING FAST. Solid State Drives aren’t based on moving parts, they’re based on circuit boards. As stated before mechanical drives take time because you have to wait for pieces to move into place. By default, most lower end and systems older than a year will have Mechanical drives…
SSD’s however have less space you can buy one for about 50cents USD a Gigabyte… it’s not all that great… 240GB for $120, but like I said this is for performance, not really space. if you want a middle line between space and performance get a hybrid. which is kinda a cross over between an SSD and a Mechanical drive. It has more space, but is slower then and SSD. It has less space, but is faster than a mechanical drive.
RAM really doesn’t “Speed up” that much, it’s really for how many programs you can run at once.
