Hardware requirements

Please see hardware requirements for more information.

Software requirements

  • Minecraft 1.12.2 or newer. Older versions will need to be updated to current versions.
  • Java (Java SE 6 Update 32 or Java SE 7 Update 4 or newer is preferred)

Please include

  • Please include the following info, obtainable via software such as Piriform Speccy, AIDA64, sysctl, lshw, or CPU-Z in your entry:
    • Operating System (Mac, Windows, GNU/Linux), version/distribution, and architecture (32-bit or 64-bit)
    • CPU Brand (AMD/Intel), CPU name, Clock speed (in GHz)
    • GPU Brand (AMD/NVIDIA/Intel), GPU name, Clock speed (in GHz), VRAM amount (in MB)
    • RAM amount (in GB), RAM type (DDR, DDR2, DDR3)
    • Storage Device Type (HDD/SSD)
      • If using RAID, please specify it.
    • Resolution (e.g. 1920×1080)
      • If using a 16 bit color depth, state it in the comments.
    • FPS in windowed mode is required. FPS in fullscreen is requested.
    • Please keep comments under 15 words.
    • If you are using GNU/Linux, please mention which version of Java you are using (OpenJDK or Sun/Oracle).

Conditions for testing

To contribute to this list:

Use the following settings:

  • Main Options
    • FOV: Normal
    • Difficulty: Normal
  • Video Settings
    • Graphics: Fancy
    • Render distance: Far
    • Smooth lighting: ON
    • Performance: Max FPS
    • 3D Anaglyph: OFF
    • View Bobbing: ON
    • GUI Scale: Normal
    • Advanced OpenGL: OFF
    • Brightness: Moody
    • Clouds: ON
    • Particles: All
    • Server Textures: OFF
    • Use VSync: OFF
  • Other notes
    • Use the default texture pack
    • Use the downloadable client
    • NO MODS (especially OptiFine)
      • If you want, you can install OptiFine after the initial test and make a note of your fps in your comment section. This is not required.
  • In-game setup
    • Make a new singleplayer world with seed "Hardware Performance Test" (without quotation marks, case-sensitive)
    • Press F3 to bring up the debug screen. Your FPS will be the first line on the top left next to the game version.
    • Look around in all horizontal directions
    • When getting your average frame rate walk around in a small circle (about 20 blocks in all directions - counting from a center of a circle).
    • Get an average frame rate for the default window size and with a maximized window. To maximize your window, press F11 (Mac OS X FN + F11).
    • Do not look straight down or straight up while obtaining the frame rate - look straight forward.
      • Looking down causes any underground entities to hurt your average fps while looking up inflates it, ruining a standard test either way.

Note about the framerate sections

Please only use numbers in the framerate sections. If possible, simply put what your average was, but if you feel a range or estimate is appropriate, the characters - and ~ are acceptable, such as ~60 for an average or 50-70 for a range, but just a single number will do.

The official client refuses to load Minecraft; however, a pirate client loads the game successfully, but with many glitches and heavily reduced performance. Blocks may sometimes fail to disappear when broken, and the blur effect on the title screen is laggy and blotchy. Even with MCPatcher, HD textures are broken, with white splotches (my computer hates OpenGL - this problem occurs in all OpenGL programs; however, this does not occur with the default texture pack.) Lighting flickers erratically. Fullscreen mode is broken, but window maximization is not. Small maps and the End dimension run at very playable framerates (upwards of 50 FPS).
