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 !

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 2
- LG Optimus 2X
- Google Nexus S
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 !!

Great APP and great Driver! This easily boosts performance and saves some battery when playing 3d games. The optimization is great and don't downsize the textures too much. I think All Operating systems should make OpenGL optimization like this. I don't have words to thank the developers for creating this tweak and sharing it for free.

I am impressed with it but Please developer remove the Search for Plugin feature. I have some 20,000 map files data and it even searches those maps folder.. it takes it 10 mins to search for the plugins.. It shouldnt be like that... Either specify it one folder for all plugins or just make a Browse for plugin via explorer.. but not thesearch plugin..I am deducting 1 star just for its long search time...

After setting night mode with custom color, switching between home screens and apps screens are laggy. Even live wallpaper lags a lot...

Even though it won't let me download the Free version of Chainfire 3D from Market, I was able to get it from another site. So I was able to test it on my Rooted Skyrocket. And I was able to play Sprinkle. So maybe it's time to "allow" SkyRocket users to download this awesome app

I use this app to play shadowgun on my HP TOUCHPAD and HD2! You can play all tegra games without a tegra chip, grab the nvidia plugin.
