Simple interface used to program 2D and 3D images.

Direct3d is an application programming interface that enables the user to manipulate models of 2D and 3D images. By doing so, it provides you with higher visual quality, especially in applications where visuals matter - such as video games.

Multiple core cards

With multiple core cards and processors being more popular nowadays, the manufacturers have created a new edition of Direct3d that takes advantage of those multiple cores, further improving the gaming experience.

Games require some serious hardware used for simulations of physics and processing 3D images. For that reason, they take up a lot of CPU space, and the quality of your experience may suffer. Direct3d works to overcome this problem by reducing the need for CPU power by transferring control over the memory usage directly to the game.

Direct3d takes away a share of the work from your main processor and transfers it to the graphics chip. You won’t feel the effects of what happens in the system background while playing a game or running a similarly demanding application.

As a software, Direct3d offers 3D rendering on many PC games, as well as game acceleration. By using this program you can accelerate many operations that run on your graphics card.

Direct3d is included as a part of the DirectX package, and is updated side by side with your system upgrades. This means you won’t have to worry about pesky repetitive installations. That, plus the fact that it is completely free, makes it an excellent choice.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes, OpenGL is the strongest competitor to Direct3d. Your choice boils down to personal preference and the type of game you use it for.

Where can you run this program?

Direct3d runs on Windows 7 and later.

Our take

This software is invaluable for playing games and running animation programs on your PC. It helps programmers create 3D images that run smoothly because of your video card.

Should you download it?

Yes. Especially if you’re a game developer. If you’re just a PC gamer, it could improve your experience, but it’s far from a necessity.
