It is also recommended for DirectX 8.1 & OpenGL advance technologies. This device allows the card to cater superb gaming quality in most popular 3D games. Primarily, ASUS V8170 works as a capture card. Most capture cards are thus popularized as “TV tuner cards”. It is 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 TV tuner cards operate just like video capture cards. 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 like the PCI bus expansion card, PCI Express bus, PCMCIA, ExpressCard or USB devices that have become so popular in the market these days. There also other multi function video cards that contain double functionalities like TV tuners and the like.

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 that also acts as expansion cards whose purpose is to create and output images onto a display. Other notable functions include an accelerated rendering of 3D scenes and 2D graphics as well as video capture, TV tuner adapter, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 decoding. This also goes for firewire, light pen, TV output or the ability to connect multiple monitors while other modern high performance cards are used for more graphically demanding purposes such as personal games. This hardware is always bundled on the motherboard and previously being configured as a video controller or graphics controller.
