    The Java Edition rendering engine is garbage, and only got worse with 1.14. I'm beginning to think Microsoft is trying to kill Java edition slowly to try to get everyone to move to their more monetized Bedrock edition.

    The fact is, Vulkan rendering is possible in Minecraft. (Reference here)

    However, many people who play minecraft (My sisters included) have computers that don't support Vulkan.

    OpenGL is a powerful (If bloated) graphics library, the problem is bad rendering code and as of 1.15 Minecraft only uses OpenGL version 2.0 when 3.0 is actually older than Minecraft itself.
