Instructions[edit | edit source]

Software requirements[edit | edit source]

Latest graphics drivers:

Minecraft launcher 1.6.51 or newer (auto-updates upon launch):

Minecraft 1.8.9 or newer.

  • You may use the latest snapshot or pre-release when applicable.

Conditions for testing[edit | edit source]

Before continuing, please note:
You must read and follow the instructions below for your entry to be accepted. Doing so will ensure that the results are as consistent and accurate as possible.
Failure to follow these instructions will result in the removal of your entry.

Requirements before you start benchmarking:

  • Use only your primary display and set it to its native resolution,
    • You may include framerates from Eyefinity or Surround setups in the comment section.
  • Use only the official Minecraft launcher,
  • Use only the settings provided below,
  • Disable any mods before benchmarking,
    • (Optional) You may install OptiFine or BetterFps, collect framerate results for windowed and fullscreen mode, then post them in the comments section. Example:

| comments = Windowed - 56-104, fullscreen - 43-87, using BetterFps 1.2.0

Launcher Setup In-game Options and Video Settings
  • Choose New Profile, and use the options provided below:

Profile info 1.8.png

  • FOV - Leave this at Normal
  • Resource Packs - Use only the Default resource pack.

Testing Method[edit | edit source]

  • Create New World
    • World Name: "Hardware Performance Test" (Without quotes)
    • Game Mode: Survival, Creative if you don't want hostile mobs to bother you (Please don't use commands or fly if you choose Creative).
    • More World Options
      • Seed for the World Generator: "Hardware Performance Test" (Without quotes)
      • Generate Structures: ON
      • World Type: Default
      • Allow Cheats: OFF
      • Bonus Chest: OFF
  • Once in the Test world...
    • Press F3 to display the debug screen.
    • Go to and stand at coordinates XYZ: 276.5xx / 82.00000 / 180.5xx. (Displayed on the seventh line from the top)
      • Looks in all directions to load all visible chunks until the chunk updates value drops to zero or a low, consistent value.
  • To gather FPS results:
    • Walk around in a small circle (about 10-15 blocks in all directions - counting from the center of a circle), while looking ahead.
      • Do Not look straight up or down while obtaining the frame rate. Looking both upwards and downwards causes objects that are out of view, mainly objects on the horizontal plane, not to be rendered which increases FPS. This skews the results.
    • Get the minimum and maximum frame rates for:
      • Default window size (854×480),
      • Maximized window (best fit to the primary monitor's native resolution),
      • Fullscreen (primary monitor only, not spanned over multiple monitors).
        • To change to fullscreen: Windows Users press F11, OS X users press FN + F11).
    • (Optional, but recommended:) Use Fraps benchmarking feature to collect frame rate results. (Using the debug screen lowers the in-game framerate causing results to be less accurate.)
    • Record the highest and lowest frame rate values, not an average frame rate. (An average of 35FPS won't tell a user that you really may have had 5-40FPS during your gameplay.)
    • Capture frame rate to the ones place for best accuracy (FPS results such as 200-100 are less accurate than 210-180 or 252-157.)

Adding your results[edit | edit source]

For your entry to be accepted, you must:

  • Add your results using only the provided link below, not by editing the results page source.
  • Follow the formatting of the EXAMPLE entry template that is provided to you.
  • Not submit an incomplete entry (e.g., leaving out your drive_model, or the frequency of your GPU).
  • Not include bogus information; this information is for the benefit of others, not their detriment. Suspicious entries may be removed at our discretion.

By adding your entry, you acknowledge that you have read the Instructions in their entirety.
