Hello everyone. So I thought I'd make another guide on allocating RAM to your minecraft launcher. I know there is already a good guide on allocating more RAM, but I thought I'd make this one for the newer launcher as it is a little more complicated and different from the old one.

First step is to go to Launch Options once you've opened your launcher.

Next, you need to click the JVM arguments switch to make it green.

After that, change the number in the "-Xmx3G" argument to however much you'd like to allocate to minecraft. From my experience, 3-4G works the best!

Finally, click save and start playing. Thanks for reading, hope this helped. :)

This guide is helpful, but the player is recommended to have at least 2GB of RAM Allocated with Optifine. Of course there will still be some lag. Which means I suggest people to have at least a 4GB RAM PC. That way, you don't crash your PC. Note: You won't be able to run much other programs while playing.

I am on a 6GB RAM Laptop and allocated 3GB + Optifine. I'm on 60 FPS and can play while running Chrome.
