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.

Warning please read instructions on android market where you download the app. If you are on a custom os which has recovery built in please perform a backup (Nandroid backup option on recovery screen) as this app could cause issues with some devices and may even not be able to boot device

We have tested it on Xperia play r800i and works perfect. If you have a kernel which you can overclock you could boost the power to make some high end games run smoother.

How to run TEGRA, QUALCOMM and POWER VR powered games on your device

To enable Tegra etc. games on your device you will have to download different plugins for chainfire3d these plugins have not been made by the Chainfire3D dev but can be found in link below made by others. When you have downloaded these to your sdcard go in to Chainfire3D and install and load these plugins. For free Chainfire3d users you can only change default settings so you will have to load the correct plugin (e.g. NVidia plugin Tegra) before the certain game (e.g. Tegra title) that you want to play with each time. Paid app users can change settings per app which is a lot easier. When done click on game and you are playing Tegra on a non Tegra device how cool.>/p>
