Best video settings for Minecraft 1.17.1
Some of the most important settings to fix lag in Minecraft 1.17.1 are render distance and graphics. The recommended settings for render distance is to set it as low as possible. The lowest value is 2, however, this may make Minecraft very hard to play. In case 2 does not work for you, try setting it to 4. Anything beyond that will cost you lots of FPS.
The graphics setting should always be set to Fast. This will reduce the graphics quality of Minecraft – yes that is actually possible – and in return give you more FPS. In case you’re wondering what other settings are recommended, check out this video:
Allocate RAM to Minecraft
In this video, I will show you how to allocate more RAM to Minecraft 1.17.1, to make the game run smoother. Sometimes low FPS or huge lag spikes are caused by too little RAM being allocated to Minecraft. If you allocate more RAM to Minecraft, this usually works as a great FPS fix! The Java argument you want to change to Minecraft is -Xmx(something)G. ‘G’ represents the amount of gigabytes you want to allocate to Minecraft. Note: I do not recommended allocating more than half of your total memory to Minecraft!
Allocating more RAM can sometimes fix all lag issues you’ve ever had!
