    1) To increase the FPS and reduce the Lag, click "Options..." button, click "Video Settings..." button, and then click "Performance: Max FPS/Balanced/Power saver" button.

    - Performance: Max FPS => You will get the Max FPS

    - Performance: Balanced

    - Performance: Power saver

    2) If you still have the lag, play the Minecraft in Window mode, and reduce the game/Window size.

    2.2 GHz isn't that much processing for computers when running games, so if your trying to play a game and record it at the same time, its going to lag

    Source(s): Im using a gaming computer and most pc games require about 3.2 GHz processors to run with mid-settings
