Take control over your GPU!

Chainfire3D is an intermediary OpenGL driver. What does that mean? It means that Chainfire3D sits between your apps and the graphics drivers, and can intercept and/or change commands between the two. It has some built-in functions, and can be further extended with plugins to provide extra functionality.

!! For Froyo and Gingerbread ONLY. NOT COMPATIBLE with Honeycomb/Ice Cream Sandwich/Jelly Bean !!

!! Chainfire3D is for 1ghz+ devices only !!

!! ROOT is required for this program, as well as a writable /system partition. S-OFF is also required on HTC devices !!

Features include reducing texture size and quality to reduce memory use and potentially increase game performance, as well as increasing memory use potentially increase 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 improve image quality!

Be sure to check the thread on XDA for available plugins !

Many users are running Chainfire3D on devices not listed here - it's likely to work on all modern devices. So far nobody has reported a failed install, so that's good. Doesn't mean problems can't happen.

!! 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 !!

The night mode does not work well on my Iconia a500. It stays on for a second and then turns off. Hopefully the next version will remedy this problem.

DXTC, ATITC and PVRTC compressed texture support for Mali 400 GPU - usefuly for games that doesn't support ETC texture compression.

Want to brick your device? Best and easiest way to brick your device. After clicking the install CF3D driver there is a 80% probability that your device won't boot. You will have to re-install your ROM. This app only serves the above mentioned purpose for now. Used to be better.
