Conventional 3Dlabs PERMEDIA2v (PCI) is type of computer bus that is used for connecting a number of hardware devices in computers and takes integrated circuit forms normally fitted on motherboards. These motherboards are known as planar devices and are located within expansion cards or PCI specifications that could fit in any kind of socket. From the name 3Dlabs PERMEDIA2v (PCI), ‘PCI' is used as an initial for Peripheral Component Interconnect.
