The 3Dlabs reference PERMEDIA 2 3D Accelerator device driver contains support components not only for the display driver but for the OpenGL and Heidi graphics processing technologies as well. OpenGL is an international graphics standard which allows for better and faster processing of graphical contents. In this context the device driver allows for the hosting of interactive environments in both 2D and 3D platforms. This functionality delivered by the 3Dlabs reference PERMEDIA 2 3D Accelerator and supported by its device driver is exceptionally important when dealing with graphics intensive software applications like computer games. The Heidi driver accompanying the device driver is commonly identified with the use of image and video editing programs. This is used mostly in the rendering of edited contents. By using the correct device driver with the 3Dlabs reference PERMEDIA 2 3D Accelerator the computer system can optimally handle virtually any type of graphics contents.
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
The device driver also supports the default graphics rendering engine used by the operating system. This means that depending on the design of the calling software application, either its built-in graphics rendering technology or that of the operating system will be used. In either case, the device driver makes sure that no loss in quality or speed happens when processing data. The hardware itself is supported by the automatic detection feature of the operating system. This means that upon its installation, the operating system will prompt the computer user for the location of its device driver. The use of the correct device driver for the 3Dlabs reference PERMEDIA 2 3D Accelerator will ensure that no conflict with other hardware components of the host computer system will exist. This in turn results in a better performing machine. In terms of computer gaming, majority of newer programs require the use of 3D acceleration in order to function properly. This feature is activated in the hardware by the device driver. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and 3Dlabs reference PERMEDIA 2 3D Accelerator errors before installing any driver updates.
