Windows device driver information for ATI RS300 Host Bridge

Being the pioneer and largest producer of computer products worldwide, ATI continuously gears to develop advanced multiple technologies while supporting six independent display outputs simultaneously. This brings outstanding graphic display capabilities as well as panoramic computing experiences. ATI also brings servers or CPU’s equipped with processors balance of performance, I/O capabilities, low energy consumption as well as hardware-assisted virtualization. These are made possible through a chip known as “AMD Opteron”. This helps processors in organizing as well as in optimizing data transfer for its overall performance. There are also advanced products like energy efficient multi-core processors, advanced memory handling capabilities and hardware-based virtualization technologies. These are specifically designed for developing features for x86-based computers which gives fast and efficient virtualization. Power efficiency is also a main concern of ATI. They paved the way in innovating the “AMD Cool'n'Quiet” as well as the “ATI PowerPlay” technology. This produces proven, measurable benefits for businesses and consumers while reducing power usage, lowering energy costs and lessening environmental impact. The ATI RS300 host bridge is designed for interfacing the central processing unit to be attached with the PCI bus. The bridge's main concern is to support a thirty two bit or sixty four bit back-end bus for multiple central processing units.

RS300 primarily performs as the bus master, bus target, and configuration access generation. Basically, this means that it enables creating boundaries in the system CPU and in user-defined logic. This is popularly known to direct memory access and memory controllers. This allows the memory controllers to have the highest possible data bandwidth simultaneously. It also permits the CPU and or the user logic to start the system during power-up reset. Command ports such as host bridges are often connected into a PCI card. PCI cards also offer other useful function but basically, it is connected to a bus. This enables the user to connect these components to the computer's processor. Users may see these connections among their other computer hardware as hard disks, memory, sound systems, video systems and more. The very usage f this device is to construct parts that are more interchangeable. These devices can just be plugged or unplugged if the user wants to upgrade or downgrade their computer hardware. It was the ninety’s when Intel introduced the very first PCI bus or the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) bus. This stands as the hybrid of sorts between the ISA and VL Bus. As such, through its connection, it can give admittance to system memory for connected devices. In order to fully operate, it needs a bridge to connect to the front side bus and to the CPU or the central processing unit. This is the physical connection that actually connects the processor to most of the other components in the user’s computer. The connections included are the main memory or RAM, hard drives and the PCI slots. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ATI RS300 Host Bridge errors before installing any driver updates.
