For this article, we use BSL Shaders 1.17.


The installation went very well; oddly enough, the performance of windows 11 is impressive; it has changed the design and the performance as well.

As the files downloaded by Launcher, the installation of Minecraft was much faster, we had no compatibility issues, and Shaders worked very well. Optifine, together with Windows 11, is a good partnership for the Game’s graphics on the new OS.

Even without being in its final version, Microsoft did a great job, Windows 11 is well optimized; we are anxious to have the OS definitively in its final version.
