SwiftShader is a revolutionary software-only 3D renderer that provides DirectX 9 features including both Pixel and Vertex Shaders and can be more than 50 times faster than Microsoft's reference rasterizer. SwiftShader achieves this level of performance through the use of TransGaming's SwiftAsm runtime code generation system. SwiftAsm allows developers to easily and efficiently generate highly optimized code entirely at runtime. SwiftShader uses SwiftAsm to translate both shader-based and fixed function geometry and pixel pipeline operations into high-speed x86 SSE and MMX code, which is then cached for later reuse as needed.
