Almost everyone likes computer games. Games are good exercise for our minds as well. With time, computer games have evolved a lot. Almost all kind of games these days run in high definition and most of them require a high configuration PC. So, when you want to play high quality games but have a low end PC, it will spoil the excitement.

We will be using 3D Analyzer utility for scaling down high end games to be able to run them on low configuration PC. Before we go any further, let’s know about 3D Analyzer.
What is 3D Analyzer and How does it Work?
3D Analyzer does transform and lightning hardware emulation which helps in running TnL games on PCs without dedicated graphics card. It can emulate most of the features of 3D games such as Pixelshader, Bump Maps, SW TnL etc. But a normal user may not understand these technical terms so in easy language it helps to “play high end games on low end PCs“.
