I have heard that 3D Analyze lets you play high end games on your PC. I have tried it once with Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, but it did not help me there.

Does it really work or its just a hoax?

If it does indeed work, can anybody provide a link to instructions on how to make it work?

From a brief look here it seems you could only benefit from 3D Analayze if you have a video card that doesn't already support transform and lighting. Listing the hardware specifications of your PC could help us answer your question. – tQuarella Jun 3 '11 at 13:04

This is only useful for very old (older than ~2003) video cards without Hardware Transform and Lighting units. It emulates this functionality to allow software requiring this feature to work on these graphics cards, and in a few cases to allow certain software to run faster.
