This graphics processing card takes advantage of the implementation of proprietary technologies like the ultra threaded core architecture and the Avivo which are designed to enhance video and display performance along with better 3D data rendering. The installation of the appropriate device driver transforms the host computer system into an almost complete entertainment system. The attachment of the Diamond POC 256MB X1600 into the host computer system allows the computer user to make use of other consumer electronic products by connecting them to the interface port of the video adapter card. What happens is that the computer user can now view movies playing from an external movie player device just like if it was placed in the optical media drive of the host computer system. The device driver also supports the implementation of the DirectX 10 technology which is also a proprietary standard of the host operating system environment.
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 ASIC Core used is the RV530 that is supported by a 500 MHz core clock that is capable of handling majority of graphics intensive software applications in the market. This graphics processing card fits into the vacant Accelerated Graphics Port on the computer motherboard which is specifically designed to improve the flow of graphics related information. The device driver of this graphics processing card is capable of supporting connections made on the DVI, VGA, and TV Out interface ports on the back panel of this hardware component. The device driver makes use of 12 stream processors for more advanced handling and rendering of graphics related information. The improved graphics performance is also attributed to the 12.5 gigabytes per second video memory bandwidth that is based on the 128 bit video memory interface. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Diamond POC 256MB X1600 errors before installing any driver updates.
