This graphics processing card makes use of the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express interface or more commonly referred to as the PCI-E. This interface slot located on the computer motherboard is designed to host video expansion cards and is being pushed as a replacement to older video interface slot standards like the PCI, PCI-X, and the AGP. The main reason for adopting this video standard is that its topology is based on a point-to-point serial link instead of the shared parallel bus architecture implemented in older video adapter interface slots. This type of interface standard utilized by the Diamond X1300HM-PCIE 256MB is also implemented in ExpressCard laptop expansion card interfaces which have experienced increased demands in the last few years. According to some computer industry experts this type of video interface slot can be considered as a type of high speed serial connection that effectively replaces older video interfaces.
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 Diamond X1300HM-PCIE 256MB is based on the graphics chipset of the X1300HM which makes use of a 400 MHz core clock. This processing power is supported by four pixel shaders and two vertex shaders making full use of the 6.4 gigabytes per second memory bandwidth. What this translates to actually is an increased in processing power of the host computer system due to the availability of more system resources. This happens because the Diamond X1300HM-PCIE 256MB and its corresponding device driver essentially takes over all computations that are identified as graphical data. This means that the host computer system becomes more capable of handling complex and intensive graphical information. The presence of this hardware component also allows for better rendering of both 2D and 3D environments like those found in Computer Aided Design, Video and Image editing, and computer gaming software applications among others. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Diamond X1300HM-PCIE 256MB errors before installing any driver updates.
