This video adapter card belongs to the Viper product family which is known for its cost effective deployment of display solutions. It makes use of the Radeon X1900 XT chipset developed by ATI (now under Advanced Micro Devices Inc.). It is designed in such a way that it takes advantage of the PCI Express x16 interface bus type which is relatively faster and better compared to its predecessors. In terms of onboard memory modules dedicated to the processing of graphical information, this hardware component has 512 MB of GDDR 3 which is faster and better equipped in handling complex computations commonly associated with graphics intensive software applications. The device driver supports a 256 bit memory interface which means that it can handle more simultaneous computations than lower end graphics processing cards that make use of only 64 or 128 bit memory interfaces. The core clock speed based on the manufacturer's specifications is set at 625 MHz which according to many computer users is good enough for a middle range video adapter card.
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 built-in memory module for this graphics processing card executes a memory speed of 1.45 GHz based on the manufacturer's specifications. This is supported by 48 shader units along with 8 geometry pipelines. The Diamond X1900 XT 512MB PCI-E also makes use of 10 gigapixels per second peak pixel fill rate coupled with a 1250 peak vertex throughput. All of these functionalities designed by the manufacturer are supported by the graphics processor, the video memory modules, and the appropriate device driver. Along with these, the computer user also benefits from a 46.4 gigabytes per second peak memory bandwidth with the presence of this graphics processing card in the host computer system. What this all translates to is a faster and better handling of graphical data with higher quality image rendering to the computer user. The installation of the corresponding device driver also implements various proprietary video related technologies like the DirectX, OpenGL, and other similar protocols. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Diamond X1900 XT 512MB PCI-E errors before installing any driver updates.
