Cirrus Logic 5446 PCI (v1.14g) is one among the graphics card PCI series originally produced by Cirrus Logic. Graphics cards are also referred to as video cards or display adapters. They are expansion cards which are used to produce images to some kind of display. Some of them have additional functions such as MPEG-2 as well as MPEG-4 decoding, FireWire, light pen, TV output, video capture and the capacity to link to several monitors. Most people tend to think that high-end graphics cards are used only for video games but graphic designers as well as 3D animators also use them especially since they need optimum displays and a faster rendering. It is possible for such hardware to be incorporated on the computer's main board and when this happens, the device can also be referred to as graphics or video controller.
