Windows device driver information for ATI Radeon HD 3730

ATI’s low end card, Radeon HD 3730, didn’t impress a lot of customers. Companies stopped producing this card when a lot of people complained about the device due to continuous failures. Though ATI is a known leader in producing computer products worldwide, they have failed miserably with this product. The device basically uses a fifty five nanometer RV635 GPU regulated at 725MHz along with 1GB of Hynix GDDR2 memory regulated at 400MHz. Radeon HD 3730 belongs to the classification known as video cards. Video cards maybe termed as a video adapter, graphics accelerator card, display adapter, or a graphics card. A graphics card is also an expansion card whose purpose is to create and output images to a display. Other notable functions include 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 bundled on the motherboard and is configured as a video controller or graphics controller.

Outdated Drivers?

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

To date, ATI continuously gears to develop advanced multiple technologies while supporting six independent display outputs simultaneously. This brings outstanding graphic display capabilities as well as panoramic computing experiences. These are specifically designed in developing features for x86-based computers to guarantee fast and efficient virtualization. Power efficiency is also a main concern for ATI. Thus, they paved the way in innovating “AMD Cool'n'Quiet” as well as “ATI PowerPlay” technology. This produces proven, measurable benefits for businesses and consumers while reducing power usage, lowering energy costs and lessening environmental impact. ATI also brings servers or CPU’s equipped with processors balance of performance, I/O capabilities, low energy consumption as well as hardware-assisted virtualization. These are made possible through a chip known as “AMD Opteron”. This helps processors in organizing as well as in optimizing data transfer for its overall performance. There are also advanced products like energy efficient multi-core processors, advanced memory handling capabilities and hardware-based advancements. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ATI Radeon HD 3730 errors before installing any driver updates.
