DirectX
A new {Microsoft} programming
interface {standard} for {Windows 95}. DirectX gives (games)
programmers a standard way to gain direct access to enhanced
hardware features under Windows 95 instead of going via the
Windows 95 {GDI}. Some DirectX code runs faster than the
equivalent under {MS DOS}.
DirectX promises performance improvements for graphics, sound,
video, 3D, and network capabilites of games, but only where
both hardware and software support DirectX.
DirectX 2 introduced the Direct3D interface.
Current version: 5, as of Feb 1998. Version 8 is also
available but not widespread.
