ATI Supports GLSetup Initiative(September 17, 2001)
OpenGL is a standard application program interface (API) for the computer industry that powers many of today's most popular 3D games. GLSetup will help to ensure that no matter which operating system a user runs or which graphics card they are using, they will get the best possible performance from their application. GLSetup has been downloaded by millions of users and has shipped with such popular games as Quake 3: Arena; Serious Sam; Baldur's Gate 2; Tribes 2; Alice; Descent 3; Homeworld; Soldier of Fortune; and many others.
OpenGL is an important aspect of ATI's strategy to lead all sectors of the graphics industry. ATI's recently announced RADEON 8500, RADEON 7500 and FireGL 8800 boards all include OpenGL extensions in their drivers for optimal performance, unparalleled visual effects and a truly immersive gaming experience.
Software developers can add the GLSetup installer to a game free of charge. It will automatically detect a users 3D graphics card and install the appropriate OpenGL and Direct3D drivers, ensuring optimal 3D rendering. Users can also download and run the GLSetup installer directly from the GLSetup web site at www.glsetup.com.
