AST2000 is a superior silicon chip that integrates BMC Controller, VGA/2D Graphics Controller, and KVM over Internet Protocol Controller. AST2000 graphics driver allows videos to be sent out to a monitor. With an adaptable architecture that extends to the video BIOS and a UEFI video driver, the AST2000 driver establishes speedy customer time-to-market by enabling system integrators and OEMs to customize settings in-house, while sustaining a reasonable performance profile. The modular architecture of the AST2000 driver allows similar functionality across all supported Operating Systems. It offers features that are specific to the needs of developers while maximizing design flexibility. Among the benefits offered by this device include simplified means for supplementing custom or new display modes and improved configuration capabilities. This instructs the driver how to distinguish and choose suitable timings for system displays.
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
AST2000 features display switching and pinning as well as DVO device control. Together with its driver, this device offers improved application performance that takes advantage of Operating System acceleration application programming interfaces, which include X11 XAA interface or Microsoft DirectDraw interface. Its support hardware video decode acceleration which enables it to relieve decode burden from the computer's processor, lessens power consumption, and eradicates the need for software CODECs. AST2000 offers video redirection of up to 1600x1200 and 16-bits video compression quality. It enables the graphic hardware to be unplugged or reset without the need to reboot. The AST2000 also enables new functionality areas that were not uniformly offered by earlier display driver models. The drivers enable the memory of the video to be virtualized and video data to be called out of video memory into the RAM. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AST2000 errors before installing any driver updates.
