Also with KUDA shaders, and Fancy graphics. If not, Medium graphics settings. Write a comment that you voted Yes for Medium graphics settings (if you did).

If anyone wants more performance over shaders, I recommend mods like Sodium, Phospur and LithiumBear in mind that these three aren't compatible with Optifine and Forge.
