Also Optimizes Minecraft

Players may also notice a significant boost in FPS once OptiFine is installed. This can be due to the optimization that the mod introduces. This can be very helpful if you're running demanding mods.

Can Be Used With Textures

Even with version 1.17 up, you can still use old texture packs to improve your Minecraft's visuals. Unlike the effects introduced by shaders, texture packs directly change the faces of blocks and entities. Use them both to get a more visually-appealing Minecraft experience.
