Glide API Books

Glide is a 3D graphics API developed by 3dfx Interactive for their Voodoo Graphics 3D accelerator cards.

Although it originally started as a proprietary API, it was later open sourced by 3dfx.[1] It was dedicated to gaming performance, supporting geometry and texture mapping primarily, in data formats identical to those used internally in their cards.

The Voodoo cards were the first to offer performance to really make 3D games work well, and Glide became widely used as a result.
