Minecraft is Extremely Resource Intensive
I learned about Minecraft for the first time this weekend, after finding out that my toddler became interested in it from friends at school. So I proceeded to install the demo to give it a go, and finally purchased three copies for us to play.
I have played a lot of different games in the past that required a lot of resources--Battlefield 4, PlanetSide, etc.--but it feels like Minecraft is the biggest hog. In other games, I can alt-tab out of the game and the computer will still be responsive. In Minecraft, even when the game is paused in single player mode, the Intel Turbo Boost indicator still shows CPU maxed out. Firefox and other applications become sluggish. It has slowed to the point that I want to put a tablet next to me to do Minecraft research, rather than tabbing out.
In some cases, the CPU is still pegged at max after exiting Minecraft. The culprit is an Adobe Flash process that has to be killed. I don't know how Minecraft is associated to Adobe Flash, but it gets started after I start Minecraft client.
If anyone know how to decrease Minecraft resource needs or to optimize it, please speak up. I'd love to hear your Minecraft tips.
