Ok, so the title is self explanatory but im getting only about 20-45 fps with my dedicated gaming graphics card Nvidia GeForce 940mx while I'm getting 30-49 fps with my Intel Integrated Graphics Card. I have a Intel core i5-7200U 2.5Ghz with turbo boost to 3.1 GHz. I have a texture pack installed and everything at low settings in MC.
Acer Aspire E5-575G
Processor: Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHZ-3.1GHz
Graphics Card: Nvidia Geforce 940mx with 2gb dedicated vram and Integrated Intel graphics card
Laptop on high performance
Nothing other than MC is on

Sadly the 940MX isn't too brilliant. I have a laptop with those exact specs and get around the same performance. Try playing with the Intel HD graphics, you might actually get slightly higher framerate.
All you need to do is locate the javaw.exe on your Minecraft folder in your ProgramFiles(x86), that should be this location "C:\Program Files (x86)\Minecraft\runtime\jre-x64\1.8.0_25\bin\" and then open your NVIDIA control panel and add a new program. And if you want to make sure you are using your GPU just right click on Minecraft.exe and Open with graphics card...
Sorry for the late reply but how exactly do I do that, do I find javaw.exe in my .minecraft folder and right click it and change it to the nvidia drive? Sorry but I'm not really good with knowing files.
Hey there, you don't have to do anything with your ".minecraft" folder, unless you want to install a mod or something related. What you need to do, is go to your "C" Drive and follow this direction:(this may be changed depending on where you've installed Minecraft, but mostly is on there)
That's the path you have to follow that comes with default Minecraft Installation, also I will repeat if you have installed Minecraft in another path, you will have to go where you've installed it, otherwise, it won't work.
Thanks for the info, I've tried what you've told me, I know java runs on the Nvidia card when I start up minecraft, however, that didn't solve the low fps problem. i don't know if it has to do with my dedicated graphics card being the Nvidia Geforce 480mx or not.
Hey, I've been researching in all this time, and what I find out, is if you have a laptop that is semi-high or something related, you will find that when you play the fans starts getting noisy. Well, when you right click you battery, you will find three things, one is called brightness, energy options, and the last one that I find most important Windows Mobility Center, here, on the last one, you will find the performance of your laptop, if it's on High-Performance or Normal, I have created two types of battery life, the one that when I don't have the battery plugged in, and the other one when I'm playing games or render things. This is where you have to set the performance when is plugged or not, in the case of Minecraft, I don't know why, it consumes a lot when it comes to play, and it's a little bit unexpected because is a simple game, but here is where you have to personalize all the things on it.
The main thing in here is that you have to set on High-Performance your laptop to be able to run Minecraft with a decent frames, when I've tried that, my fps are stable on 300+ and going higher. But if nothing here helped you, maybe your GPU or CPU is not helping much.
I hope this would be helpful for you, and I find that question really interesting, that why Minecraft has to have a lots of requirements to be play normally or decently on a high built PC.

My laptop is always on high performance and im also using Razer Cortex Boost to enhance my game. It's still stuck at low fps sadly, thanks for your help though. If anyone has any other solutions I can try, please tell me.
