Improve HTC HD2 3D performance with HD2/Leo 3D Driver Patch v2.0

Slow 3D performance on your HTC HD2? Poor video performance too? No worry, XDA Moderator, Chainfire created a HD2/Leo 3D Driver Patch for all of us. I did install version 1.1 before forgot install it back after ROM upgrade. So far I don’t have issue with games on original stock driver because I am not a hardcore gamer on mobile phone but desktop. In short, HD2/Leo 3D Driver Patch is a hack to HTC HD2 3D driver. It will improve HTC HD2 3D performance a lot.

Download Turbo3D v3.0 for HTC HD2

XDA Moderator, Chainfire had done a great job on HD2/Leo 3D Driver Patch again. This time to version 3 (Final) and renamed it to Turbo3D v3.0. It is also available from Microsoft Marketplace. It will fix Snapdragon devices like HTC HD2 that uses have an issue with OpenGL that makes 3D games very slow and/or stutter. Which mean your HTC HD2 will perform better in 3D now.

Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool

Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool. I found Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool finally. I wanted to benchmark all the 3D games that I have starting with Far Cry 2. Normally, games will have benchmark function after pull down the development console. However, Far Cry 2 skips all the hard ways. Far Cry 2 has its own benchmark tool. It is called FC2BenchmarkTool.exe and located at C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Far Cry 2\bin.

GPU-Z ~ a free utility designed to give you all information about your video card and GPU. It provides displays adapter, GPU and display information. It also provides displays overclock, default clocks and 3D clocks. I use it to trace my ATI HD 4870 GPU temp and fan speed. It has log to file function. Therefore, you can trace these during game play.

Download FRAPS – Real-time video capture and benchmarking

FRAPS is a real-time video capture and benchmarking tool. I started using it since version 1. FRAPS latest version 2.9.8 now. It is a great tool to benchmark 3D games performance when the 3D games did not support benchmarking function. Besides benchmarking, FRAPS supports other nice features like screen capture and realtime video capture. The realtime video capture quality is nice. It is identical as the way you play in the games. Check out these videos at FRAPS website.
