RAM (Random Access Memory) is an internal memory that transfers data directly with CPU. RAM is like temporary storage space between the CPU and the hard disk. The data that the CPU needs to access also goes through processed RAM. So, when you run the game, the game actually runs on RAM. So, giving more RAM to Minecraft will speed up the game.

- Go back to the News tab and select the name you added by clicking the arrow button next to Play. Then click on play to check if the issue resolves.

This method may not be very effective, but it should still be tried. Java is crucial for Minecraft. Giving enough space to run smoothly will help speeding the game.
- Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc together to open the Task Manager.

- Close unwanted programs
Background programs affect Minecraft performance. Most programs consume valuable resources and slow down Minecraft performance. You can open the Task Manager to end these unwanted programs. Open the Task Manager by Pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc together. Select the program you think is unnecessary and click on End task.
- Plug your laptop into a power source (for laptop users)
Both GPU and CPU require enough power to function fully. If the laptop battery is low, most laptops will automatically throttle their GPU and CPU and slow down Minecraft. For best gaming performance, make sure you play when having full battery or connect it to charger while playing the game.
