OptiFine HD 1.11/1.10.2/1.9.4 is a mod that was created exclusively for Minecraft during its Alpha days. It is backbone of Minecraft video performance. It enables players to run Minecraft on lower End PC’s without compromising on the graphics quality. People who have high-end gaming rigs can also utilize OptiFine’s Shader capabilities that provides next generation FPS games’ visuals to the Minecraft. If you are tired of Minecraft lag and huge drops in frame rates, I recommend you to install OptiFine for once and say good bye to performance issues. Recently, the developer Sp614x added Dynamic Lights to it. Now light spreads dynamically instead of emitting in a constant manner.
Pro-tip: Use Optifine if you are using resource pack (textures) above 32x resolution. That way your Minecraft will never crash on Launcher.
Pro-tip #2: Use 64-bit version of Java to allocate more memory to Minecraft launcher.
