Minecraft 1.20.4 is the latest version of Minecraft and some of the best shaders don’t support this version here are some of the best Minecraft Shaders for 1.20.4 and you won’t have any problem running these on your PC.

This is not a list where no. 1 means best and the last one means worst but instead, all the shaders are best but you have to select one based on your style and choice. To make it easy for you I have added an Image comparison of all shaders and also a video trailer of each shader which will ultimately help you to choose the best one for you.
