By design the Diamond X1300-PCIE 256MB is equipped with a RV515 ASIC Core and is activated by a 400 MHz core clock. The installation of the proper device driver allows this graphics hardware component to be hosted on the PCI Express (x16) interface bus on the computer motherboard. The implementation of the device driver also supports the VGA, DVI, and TV out interface ports at the back panel of the supported hardware component. This means that if the correct device driver is present in the host computer system the computer user has the flexibility of using an analog, digital, or composite connection. The computer user therefore can make use of a standard Cathode Ray Tube or Liquid Crystal Display technology based computer display screen or even a conventional television set. The device driver can also support a maximum of stream process along with the implementation of proprietary technologies like CrossFire, DirectX, and OpenGL among others.
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
Aside from its built-in graphics processing unit, the Diamond X1300-PCIE 256MB also has a built-in memory module that is dedicated to the processing of graphics related information. These memory modules supported by the appropriate device driver has a memory clock of 250 MHz and a corresponding 16 M by 16 memory configuration. It makes use of the GDDR2 memory module type which is comparatively faster than its predecessors. In terms of memory bandwidth the device driver supports the 8.0 gigabytes per second capability of the installed memory modules. The built-in standard memory module size is pegged by the manufacturer at 256 MB using a 128 bit memory interface. This means that it can handle more intensive graphical contents especially with its dual 400 MHz RAMDAC. The presence of this video adapter card effectively relieves the main processor of the many burdens that are associated with graphical data. it also helps to improve the quality of the image rendering process via its 10 bit native display support. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Diamond X1300-PCIE 256MB errors before installing any driver updates.
