When ASUS realized that there’s so much potential to the series, ASUS came up with the Radeon A9600XT. It operates in five hundred MHz with a hundred and twenty eight megabyte of Samsung memory. The device package includes a DVI connector and DVI-to-analog converter. These converters help in configuring dual analog monitors. ASUS RADEON A9600XT is basically a capture card which can is also known as a “TV tuner card”. It is a type of hardware or computer component that permits television signals to enter and be received by a computer. They are mostly correlated to video cards since most of the TV tuner cards operate like video capture cards. Hence, TV tuners allow TV signals to record television programs into hard discs. There are a lot of TV tuners which are further categorized as interfaces which can also act as a PCI bus expansion card, PCI Express bus, PCMCIA, ExpressCard or USB devices that have become very popular in these modern times. There also other multi function video cards that contain double functions such as TV tuners. Most of these cards are regarded as hyped devices from ATI – belonging to the “All-In-Wonder” series. Furthermore, these cards have most of the TV tuner’s specifications such as working like a tuner and an analog to digital converter or as an analog front end which are paired further with demodulation and interface logic. Other additional features include an onboard processor. This processor gets its power to the system's central processing unit for demodulation just like a Winmodem.

Video cards are called many names. They are also known as a video adapter, graphics accelerator card, display adapter and a graphics card. A video capture card functions mostly as video capture devices. It is innovated to directly link itself to expansion slots in personal computers and servers. Its models vary from the many companies that manufacture it like PCI, newer PCI Express (PCIe) or AGPbus interfaces. Another term that maybe connected with TV tuner cards are graphics cards which acts as expansions that can create and output images onto a display. Other notable functions are accelerated rendering of 3D scenes and 2D graphics as well as video capture, TV tuner adapter, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 decoding; plus, firewire, light pen, TV output or the ability to connect multiple monitors. This is while other modern high performance cards are used for more graphically demanding purposes such as personal games. This hardware is always previously bundled on the motherboard and was configured as a video controller or graphics controller. There are also a lot of compatibilities with this device such as the ability to attach a personal computer onto a television. This becomes very easy, as it is “VIVO” compatible. ASUS still powers this device by including superb add-ons such as PowerDirector, AsusDVD, Ulead Cool 3D, UleadExpress SE 4.0 and Asus Media Show SE 2.0. This also includes a six game demo CD with two full versions games; namely, Battle Engine Aquaila and Gun Metal.
