Minimal system requirements
The shader pack’s requirement is very minimal, but don’t expect that it won’t affect your FPS. SFLP requires at least 1.5GB of RAM and a Dual-Core 1GHZ processor. To get Minecraft playable, you should at least have that requirement to start with.
Graphics Card Compatibility
The shader pack supports all kinds of graphics cards like AMD, Nvidia, and Intel. The pack is compatible with all kinds of graphics cards as long as they support at least GLSL 1.2 and OpenGL 2.0. In addition, the graphics cards you use should be anything from 2012 and above. Any cards below 2010 will not work due to outdated and unsupported functions.
Keep in mind that you should keep your graphics card drivers up to date to avoid errors and performance loss.
3 versions; Lite, Low, and Standard

The shader pack is separated into three different versions: Lite, Low, and Standard. The Lite version requires the minimum system requirements but provides the least graphical enhancements and visual effects. If you’re using a Potato PC but still want to install a shader pack, then the Lite version is what you want. The Standard version provides decent visual effects and enhancements but might eat up some of your FPS. If you have low-mid end PC, want to play with a Shader, and don’t mind a bite or two on the FPS, then this is the one for you. Low version is somewhere between the lines of lite and standard.
Beautiful Sepia-like effect
All of the three versions of the SFLP Shaders features a sepia-like filter – making the game a bit classical and giving it a nostalgic feel.
Should You Use It?
If you don’t mind the sepia-like filter that makes the game look a bit older that it should, then we recommend this Shader pack to enjoy the graphical enhancements that shader packs bring like waving grass, waving tree leaves, sun rays, waving waters, and more. The Lite version of the pack only eats a few FPS, if it eats any at all, and even low-end PCs can use the pack. However, if you have a beast PC, then you might want a better looking Shader pack instead.
