Take manage more than your GPU!
Chainfire3D is an intermediary OpenGL driver. What does that mean? It indicates that Chainfire3D sits in between your apps and the graphics drivers, and can intercept and/or modify commands between the two. It has some constructed-in functions, and can be additional extended with plugins to provide additional functionality.
!! For Froyo and Gingerbread ONLY. NOT COMPATIBLE with Honeycomb/Ice Cream Sandwich/Jelly Bean !!
!! Chainfire3D is for 1ghz+ devices only !!
!! ROOT is essential for this plan, as effectively as a writable /system partition. S-OFF is also essential on HTC devices !!
Features include decreasing texture size and good quality to lessen memory use and potentially increase game efficiency, as nicely as rising memory use potentially boost performance.
If you also install the (experimental) EGL driver, AND your GPU supports it, AND you have the Pro version, you can enable 4xMSAA or 16xMSAA on a per-app bases. This can drastically increase image good quality!
Chainfire3D has been tested on: - HTC HD2 - Samsung Galaxy S - Samsung Galaxy Tab 7" - Samsung Galaxy S II - Samsung Galaxy Note - Samsung Epic 4G - Motorola Atrix 4G - Motorola Droid two - LG Optimus 2X - Google Nexus S
Numerous customers are running Chainfire3D on devices not listed right here - it is likely to work on all modern day devices. So far nobody has reported a failed install, so that is very good. Does not mean troubles can't come about.
!! There is some risk involved installing the driver. Your device may not boot. If you have CWM, it would be prudent to create a backup before installing !!
