The graphics of Minecraft is rather simple, and because of that, players who like good visuals might not be able to enjoy the game fully. Shaders are one of the easiest ways for Minecraft players to change the look of the game, resulting in better visuals. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 5 best shaders to use for Minecraft 1.19 update.

1. Tea Shader

Tea Shader 1.19 is a simple yet elegant low-end shader. It has a similar style to the original graphics and visuals of Minecraft, which players have been used to for years. If you've never heard of this shader pack before, Beyond Belief Vanilla Reborn might ring a bell. The shader pack was renamed Tea Shaders in 2020.

It is a great option for any shaders enthusiast running Minecraft on a low-end PC. The best improvement of Tea Shader is probably the vibrant colors - with it installed, the world of Minecraft looks much more colorful.

2. Super Duper Vanilla Shaders

Super Duper Vanilla Shaders 1.19 is a shader pack developed by Eldeston and handled by FlameRender Studios. It focuses on bringing in a gorgeous sky, realistic shadows, and an almost accurate blue water surface. The main goal of Super Duper Vanilla Shaders is to achieve realism without deviating too much from the original.

One of the most notable elements found in this shader pack is its gorgeous diamond sun. Its subtle god rays, the way the sun shines through waving leaves, and the way the sunlight is reflected on water surfaces during sunset are moments you don’t want to miss while playing the game.

3. MakeUp Ultra Fast Shaders

MakeUp Ultra Fast shaders 1.19 is a unique shader pack with great optimization for low-end PCs. All effects and details from this shader can be tweaked and customized, based on the hardware of your device. Overall, the best improvements from this shader are water reflection, clouds, and realistic lighting.

The lowest and highest presets of this shader look almost completely different. However, even at the highest settings, you should still get better FPS than other high-end shaders like BSL.

4. Sildur’s Enhanced Default Shaders

Sildur’s Enhanced Default 1.19 is a simplified version of the Sildur’s Vibrant Shaders. Enhanced Default is very lightweight and highly customizable, so even the worst potato is able to run it, whilst still adding great effects to Minecraft.

Effect-wise, instead of completely revamping the style of the game it maintains the vanilla look and adds shadows, reflections, TAA and even god rays. Additionally, it has a fast and fancy profile setting in the in-game shader options as well as download presets.

5. Builders QOL Shaders

Builders QOL Shaders 1.19 are great shaders that work especially well on low-end PCs. It adds a few features to make the game look nicer, without going completely overboard. It doesn’t have volumetric lights, bloom, or even shadows; but it does have a handful of features that blend in quite nicely with vanilla, and are cheap to do computationally.

All effects from Builder's QoL shaders can be customized to a high extent. For example, water will be very blurry by default, but turning the 'Water Blur' down to 1 will make it more realistically blurry. If you are into other effects such as Motion Blur or Depth of Field, you can always enable them at the cost of some performance.
