Yes, as you get better and higher quailty of java and lot of memory, more faster the minecraft will run.

More importantly, it is better to have the correct version of Java based up whether your operating system is 32-bit or 64-bit. I have included in the Related Links section below.

There is also a program called Minecraft Portable that you can download that lets you install Minecraft onto a USB stick or other portable storage device. Minecraft can then be played on any computer, even without Java.

You can also use Minecraft Portable to install Minecraft onto a computer that does not have Java or the Java is not working, or the necessary version.

See the related link below for system requirements.
