Basically video adapter cards are intended to speed up the performance of the host computer system by freeing up the main processor from taking control of graphics related information. These freed up system resources can be allocated by the operating system environment to handle more operation critical activities which translate to improved computing performance. The graphics related information in turn is handled by the video adapter card like the 128 DDR ATI Radeon 9700 Pro w/TV-Out which has its own built-in processor chip along with a dedicated Random Access Memory module for video data. This results in the adequate handling of both 2D and 3D graphics sets along with the use of proprietary technology. The host computer system likewise becomes capable of handling graphics intensive software applications while rendering images in a crisp and high quality manner. This particular video adapter card is hosted on the AGP port of the computer motherboard.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Aside from improving graphics rendering performance this hardware component also allows the host computer system to utilize its TV-Out port to connect to a television appliance. The device driver of the 128 DDR ATI Radeon 9700 Pro w/TV-Out implements various proprietary technologies like SMOOTHVISION which applies anisotropic and antialiasing filtering. This technology results in a clearer and higher image detail for better display quality. Another proprietary technology deployed by the device driver of this hardware component is the VIDEOSHADER which is a high definition graphics engine that makes use of programmable pixel shaders. By using this technology the 128 DDR ATI Radeon 9700 Pro w/TV-Out becomes capable of accelerating the video processing routine for higher quality displays with a faster calculating speed. The FULLSTREAM video technology used by this display component creates smoother and higher quality images that can be used to stream contents on the Internet. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and 128 DDR ATI Radeon 9700 Pro w/TV-Out errors before installing any driver updates.
