OptiFine HD is a performance enhancement modification which moves some graphics processing to the graphics card to significantly speed up the game, often delivering over double the FPS (frames per second). It makes use of your on-board/PCI express video card to provide support for improved graphics by adding HD textures, animations and eye candy to your Minecraft. It automatically installs HD texture packs and allows you to modify rendering, fog, weather and various visual options to better customization.
