On Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 ExaGear Desktop now supports hardware graphics acceleration. This feature significantly increases performance of graphics intensive x86 applications running with ExaGear on RPi 2 and RPi 3.

To use this feature you need to enable hardware graphics acceleration on Raspbian. To open the configuration tool run the following command from the command line terminal:

sudo raspi-config

You should see a blue screen with options in a grey box in the center.
Select "Update this tool to the latest version" and wait until update is performed.
When blue screen with options will pop-up again select "Advanced Options", then select "GL Driver" and then "GL (Full KMS) OpenGL desktop driver with full KMS". When configuration is finished you will see following message:
"Full KMS GL driver is enabled".
Select <Ok> and then <Finish> and raspi-config tool will ask you if you would like to reboot.
Select <Yes> to reboot the system and apply configuration changes.
This is it. 


3D graphics support has became possible due to efforts of Raspbian developers (especially Eric Anholt) who has implemented OpenGL driver in Raspbian and Eltechs team hard work which resulted in forwarding OpenGL calls from x86 to hardware. 

Just take a look at the video where we run Counter Strike and Diablo II on Raspberry Pi:
