Introduction of Optifine HD Mod:
In simple words it is a performance enhancement mod that increases Frames per second (FPS) rate of Minecraft on your Computer. Minecraft is based on an extremely popular programming language called Java.
It is the reason we are able to enjoy building blocks on our beloved game. Java is indeed a powerful tool for creating applications and games but in Minecraft it is not so stable.
That is where OptiFine comes in. Minecraft, by default, does not have proper support for utilizing the modern hardware such as Video Cards and 64-bit processors.
Additionally many people start wondering why an 8-bit style game takes too much resources? The answer is simple, it is not properly optimized.
Moreover, OptiFine does wonders when it comes to revamping the visuals, overall stability and making use of OpenGL and modern 3D graphics.
It can multiply the the FPS rate of Minecraft by 2x and makes your in-game world more visually appealing and easy to the eyes.
Similarly, OptiFine by default comes in 3 different editions.
Ultra – For Computers with dedicated graphic cards for e.g. AMD R7 390, NVIDIA GTX 980
Standard – For Computers with built-in video cards for e.g. Intel HD Graphics
Light – For very old computers. For e.g. Pentium 4, Celeron.
Also Released: Forge API 1.14.4
