Hello!
I’ve recently come back to gaming (mainly Minecraft) and weirdly, it ran at pretty high frames, considering the potato PC I have (specs at the end). I used to stream it with OBS just fine but suddenly one day, my output (not the game) started to stutter. It would skip frames. Then a few days later, my FPS would drop from 150-200 to 40-50, even without streaming. A few people told me it was high CPU usage but I don’t recall changing any setting whatsoever.

Here’s a few examples of the stuttering :

Here are my general specs :

6GB RAM
Intel HD Graphics Integrated
Intel Core i5 inside
500GB Disk Space

Any help is strongly appreciated!

You should list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Try and be as specific as possible with the parts I've asked for. Speccy doesn't encompass the PSU nor the age of the unit, which is what we'll also need you to mention.

Which version of the OS are you on? Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling your GPU drivers with the latest off of Intel's site?
