I think it is a fancy name for a video card. Direct 3D is software, but the adapter would be hardware.

Well a video card(display adaptor) is a physical piece of hardware but it requires drivers in the operating system to work.

Is there a reason for the question? Error?

thanks for the reply. i am downloading a game and it prompted me no support display adaptors were found on your system. you might not have direct 3d 8.1 compatible display adapators installed. i have an ati radeon 8900 video card
