Game Development Dictionary


A 3D API developed by 3DFX for their Voodoo chipset.

Glide was once a very popular API, as it was the first available to utilitize hardware acceleration for the general gamer. Since the proliferation of Direct3D and OpenGL, Glide's usefulness has waned because it only works on 3DFX cards.

See OpenGL, Direct3D.
