The Diamond FIRE GL 1000 PRO provides computer users with high resolutions and a wide range of color depths that is commonly found in high end graphics processing cards based on the Permedia2 processing chip. It is designed with an 8 MB of SGRAM that is dedicated to handle video related information. The installation of the appropriate device driver allows for the implementation of a maximum display resolution of 1600 by 1200 pixels provided that it is supported by the attached computer display monitor. The maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz can be set with a corresponding display resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels. This graphics processing card is designed with two heatsinks which are intended to help relieve heat build up during operation. The device driver also supports a flash BIOS feature that allows for the upgrading to newer available codes.
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
The device driver associated with the Diamond FIRE GL 1000 PRO is commonly bundled with productivity applications that are designed to support various graphics related operation. The installation of the correct device driver results in the rendering of brighter images on the computer screen compared to other video adapter cards in its class. The device driver however provides only basic functionalities for the supported hardware component and does not contain codes for extended features like fine screen positioning, customized refresh rates, and screen sizing among others. Despite the relatively plain design of its device driver this graphics processing card ably delivers OpenGL acceleration to the host computer system. The implementation of the proper device driver also allows for the execution of 3D rendering functions for the host machine. For 2D rendering operations, the deployment of the supported hardware component was not as impressive when compared with the handling of 3D graphics data. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Diamond FIRE GL 1000 PRO errors before installing any driver updates.
