A poll to see how many users are experiencing lower frame rate and how many are experiencing higher frame rate. It is widely disputed whether 1.8 has increased or decreased average frame rate. Let's settle it, because I'm sure everyone's fed up with the endless posts.
And also, I fixed my world (My buildings were reverted to their original state, and the seed was there as if I just started out in it. Although my Inventory is still there (A stack of Iron and a Diamond sword).
-And a desert temple spawned with no loot in the plains Biome near me.
-This should have been called the "lag and bugs with sea monsters update". Nice job Mojang.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Mojang needs to go back to open gl or whatever they used before 1.8 because 1.7 was fine... I was only able to play at the LOWEST SETTINGS POSSIBLE IN 1.7.10 and i got like what.. 25 fps.. and for some reason i got like five more when using a 32 x 32 texture pack.. but at 1.8 in STILL THE LOWEST SETTING FLIPPING POSSIBLE i get like 5 and multiplayer is basically UNPLAYABLE... nice job Mojang, and instead of the bountiful update they should call it the "Hey guys lets add a ton of features but make multiplayer Unplayable!!" Update.. Yea thats how bad it is

Same for me, I get 20 fps without optifine for 1.7.10 with major lag spikes, 40 fps with optifine and hardly any lag except when loading chunks.
Guess I'll have to wait 1-2 months before optifine updates so I can play 1.8.
I haven't tried 1.8 in Windows yet, but in Linux Mint 17 my average FPS has improved by 5-10 frames. My laptop has integrated graphics and only dedicates 256 MB for the graphics memory, and with 1.8 I consistently get 30 FPS with all setting maxed out. On previous versions I could get no more than 20.
My old world must be corrupt somehow now because it stutters like mad with 1.8. Made a new world and it is very smooth. Don't know if it will stay that way once I start building and adding redstone contraptions like I had in my old world.
Normal low FPS isn't really the problem for me. It's slow chunk loading(so slow that everything in the world freezes, like animals and villagers), lag spikes, and block lag. Just watch this video another guy made, and you'll see what I mean:
Now try sprint flying in creative mode! HAHAH lol...
I've always had 60fps on minecraft. I don't use Vsync, but still my graphics card just seems to refuse to render faster than 60fps (though it could handle it). It did this on old versions and it does this now. However, I do seem to have less 'stutter' (by which I mean that the framerate suddenly drops quite a bit, then goes back to normal almost immediately after), so I still voted for the 'higher fps' option. The loading of the world also seems to be faster for me; I can fly in a single direction at high speed in creative or spectator mode and the world can always keep up with me, while it wasn't always abla to do that in the past.
BTW: I don't get why there's so much hate about update 1.8. Sure it's more glitchy than most recent updates, but Mojang rewrote Minecraft almost entirely, making the code ready for plugins and experimenting with new options. So basically, almost everything is new, and Mojang has had less then a year to fix bugs in all that new code. They obviously had a lot more time to fix bugs in the previous versions, since they used a lot more code from previous versions, some of which has been updated for bugfixes since beta versions. The new features will get stable, just give them time. And if you support the plugin api: it's a lot harder to add a good and stable plugin api to older versions than it is to add it to 1.8. Stuff like the numeric id's (which were still used internally a lot in 1.7) would easily cause conflicts.
And about the things they added from mods: When mod X has cool feature Y, then people keep bugging Mojang with feature requests "Add feature Y to vanilla!!!", then when it's added, they complain that "feature Y has been stolen from mod X". You should be happy that at least they listen to the community.
