Help! GTX 560 2GB Less Than 30 FPS in Minecraft

I have a GTX 560 2GB OC with a i5 3570K @ 4.2Ghz

but in minecraft I only get 24 FPS. It seems like it's locked at 24 FPS. It only gets locked at 24 FPS when I go 1920x1080. When I pull the minecraft window as high as it can get and about 1 inch from the side of the screen on each side (27" diagonal monitor) I am still at 400 FPS as it was when it was smaller. But when I pull it those inches on each side my FPS drops to 24 and stays locked there.This issue isn't due to switching to the integrated graphics because my GPU usage goes up. This has just recently randomly begun to occur. Anyone know a solution?

    Get the minecraft magic launcher and attribute more ram to minecraft. Also get the mod optifine nulti-core. It will improve fps, has built in hd texture pack support, you can change many settings, and uses a second core for minecraft.
  2. I'd rather not cause I know that the 560 is capable of running minecraft @ 1080p.
  3. This doesn't change resolution. You are just using more of your computer for minecraft, resolution in better performance.
  4. I know that but I want to know why this is occuring for future reference.
  5. I never experienced this before, so I do not know why this is happening.
  6. Thats why I am contacting the tom's hardware community for more answers and not one person.
  7. Do you have the latest graphic drivers?
  8. I didn't know minecraft relied that much on your GPU. I thought it was only really using the CPU and ram.
  9. Yup newest drivers. No difference...
  10. How much RAM, and at what speed have you got?
  11. 8GB of RAM 1333Mhz
  12. you're running it in windowed mode? switch to full screen?
  13. When in windowed mode I get 400+FPS, when I get to EDIT: Maximized Windowed it gets locked at 24.
  14. This happened to some other games for me like Fallout new Vegas. But for new vegas there was a window remover.
  15. A window remover? What does that mean?
  16. When I go real full screen by hitting F11 I get 150+ fps. So i know its not a hardware issue/limitation.
  17. locking at 24fps seems a good clue!

    .........maybe.....either minecraft has a setting that locks fullscreen to 24fps - or - the gfx card's control panel has done this to this game. In either case, check both senarios for an option to prevent fps locking to screen refresh rate or increase the locking target rate. I know that some games have options for this very 'issue'.
  18. Monitor refresh rate(vertical scan) linked to/influencing game fps - yes, that would prove it - try altering your monitor refresh rate and see if the fps alters, if it does, then one of the two options I mentioned above may well be the culprit.
  19. Refresh rate is at 60 HZ no difference.
  20. Did you try the options in my 1st post? - have a close look for something like 'sync to vertical blank' or fix fps and untick.....that's where your problem is almost sure to be.
  21. Couldn't find either in minecraft settings or Nvidia Control Panel. V-Sync is off.
  22. In the options of minecraft, you will see a 'Performance' button.
    Click it until it changes to 'Max FPS'.
    Then come back and tell us if it worked. :D
  23. Nope, its at Max FPS No difference.
  24. chances are its your screen... is it a tv that your using as a monitor? if so it could be locking the fps at 24 due to it being a pal set. which runs at 24 fps. try setting it via the tv/monitors menu to 60hz.
  25. Again, its a monitor and as far as the nVidia control panel says, its running at 60Hz
  26. change everything to max video settings then click save, Then go back to video settings and look for the TAB labeld Performance it will be on power saver change it to MAX FPS I wont alter the quality it is just a power usage feature for your graphics card with performance mode on I get no more than 35 FPS with it on MAX FPS I get 8759FPS this game runs on fresh air basically XD
