    I used to get at least 50 fps. I have a macbook air 2013 with 4GB of Ram. I downloaded the latest version of 1.8.9 forge and for the JVM arguments it was already set as 2G which is half my ram. So why is my fps getting no higher than 40? It just stays around 20.

    Is your fps set to unlimited? do you have applications running in background?

    Idk if youre using any mods but with this kinda pc you should only use optifine. Try lowering all your settings to minimum. Btw 4gb of ram is not a lot.. other games rlly need that 8gb if you have any money you could upgrade. Or buy a better pc.

    If you dont have any money you could cleanup your whole hard drive. It helps.

    And what apex said try not to have multiple apps open at the same time
    What I used to do was play songs on my phone while pVPIng in mc lol

    My personal computer is a MacBook Air 2013 with 4GB RAM, I get ~140fps and ~80fps when recording. I didn't change anything with the allocation of RAM, and I use Forge 1.8.9. It's all about your Optifine configuration. Also, BetterFPS mod helps as well.

    I use to have the same MacBook, however I changed it to the new one with the touchscreen. It kind of helped out and it gets me about 250 FPS if I am really good. I Highly recommend you to buy another computer. Also, I believe your computers battery or storage space or somewhere in your machine is kind of burnt for the old da also, I believe your computers battery or storage space or somewhere in your machine is kind of burnt for the old age. So, if you can buy another computer, it will be the best choice.

    try plugging your computer in. If it's on battery the performance is halved, and don't set the limit to V-Sync as this might wrongly limit your fps (ik this from playing on a 4y/o Lenovo i3 laptop with dedicated graphics)
    I get 200-400 fps and if I'm really trying I can get up to 1k fps too

    lmao windows 7 is good with protection and like you can't really go wrong with forge mods, but just try to avoid downloading hacked clients due to there being keyloggers or other stuff. And texturepacks can't give you a virus if you don't open a .exe or a .jar

    because you use a fucking mac like i used to use one now i have a somewhat decent desktop throw that thing in the garbage and get a new pc if you’re poor steal from someone
    my point is apple computer products in general are a waste of money, a 1000 dollar macbook air gets shit on by a 500 dollar self built system.

    If you're talking about a Mac Laptop, you still get ~150fps, I think it's pretty good.

    If you're talking about an iMac, you get ~300 - 600fps
