    Sodium is objectively the best FPS boosting mod out there. From experience, it triples my FPS, and it is said to tenfold on some devices. It does not have shader support however you can use IRIS for that which is just shader supporting Sodium at its basic.

    Sodium required fabric API and not support optifine shaderpacks but incrase your FPS dramaticly, reduce micro-stutter, minecraft chunks load very fast.

    (Not: Fabric API is modular and lightweight alternative to minecraft forge)

    Iris is basically Sodium mod with shaders. So you basically get shaders with Sodium's FPS boost. And there are very little things, if any at all, you can't replace with mods in Fabric that OptiFine has. But if you're doing heavy modding you'll probably use Forge, in which case your only option will be OptiFine. So you can't really throw away OptiFine either.

    I like Fabulously Optimised to an alternative to OptiFine because of the transparency involved in their decision making, as well as their overall higher FPS.

    The best alternative of OptiFine for latest versions of Minecraft. The performance optimizations are more than notable, it's completely free & open source (with free capes offered) and the resource pack feature support is nearly identical to OptiFine. If you switch to Fabulously Optimized, you won't look back, even for a moment!
