Hello! This might be a stupid question but what would be the equivalent of glGetString (or something similar) in DirectX, to return the name and vendor of the video card? Can't find anything in the docs... Thanks!

Look into the GetAdapterIdentifier method on the IDirect3D9 interface.

Hope this helps,
