    Minecraft with 2 gpu's - Same FPS?


    Hello.

    My laptop has Intel HD 4400 and GTX850M 4gb.
    Doesnt matter which one I run the game with, in both cases I get 120FPS.
    I have nothing to complain about, but it's just so weird!

    Could someone tell me how I get more with the gaming gpu?
    I have disabled VSync in game(was at 60fps before I did that, both of the gpu)

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Pointless, all you would get is tearing on the display, essentially because your 60 Hz monitor would display a part of two frames. If you got more FPS you would have 3 part frames with even more tearing and so on.
    So what you are saying is something simple like, er, Windows desktop should be running at 2,000 FPS or something ridiculous.
    GPUs these days will limit the frame rate so as not to consume power doing nothing useful.

    Makes sense. I did something though and now it runs on 230fps :P
    I was mainly being curious and I believe you gave me what I wanted to know.
    Thanks!
