As graphics cards and computer builds continue to move forward to the next generation packs like RTX Ray Tracing Pack For Java 1.17.1 try to keep Minecraft relevant in terms of visuals.

Packs like these were designed and created by developers to modify the look of the default resource pack and turns the game into somewhat a better resolution game compared to vanilla.


Although not exactly RTX support, this pack is still admirably amazing as the creator of this pack dedicated so many hours to replicate the look of Ray tracing on Minecraft.

What is RTX Ray Tracing Pack For Java 1.17.1

This resource pack was designed and created by the pack maker that goes by the name Arkadya who has been known for making custom UI's.


This project is one of the best looking pack that she has created. This HD resource pack is just filled with so much details and fine art.

Not only does this pack pack contain great aesthetics, the color gradients are perfect plus the whole concept is amazing.

Although not the original RTX from Bedrock, the creator of this pack actually got the official textures and then made it compatible for Java for all of us.

Overall the pack just looks amazing. It turns this blocky and pixelated world into something which is like from the modern gaming era.

Is RTX for Java Worth the Download

Definitely a yes! If you want to change the overall look of Minecraft and improve the quality of the visuals then this is one of the best options.

If you want to make it seem even more alive, be sure to download and use any of the top shaders for Minecraft together with it.

However, do note that this pack might make your device slow if it does not have enough specifications. You will need a good graphics card and a decent processor.

Since this is a high resolution resource pack vanilla Minecraft won't be able to support it. This is why you will need to download Optifine first before you are able to use this pack.


  • Makes the visuals somewhat support ray tracing
  • Has super HD visuals which are very realistic
  • Amazing improvement in overall visuals


  • Is not really RTX support, just a cloned texture pack of the original bedrock version in Java
  • Is very beefy resource wise
  • Will slow down your machine if it is not a decent gaming set-up
