The device driver of the DT-301A allows the host computer system to accommodate the graphics processing card in its AGP slot on the computer motherboard. It also provides the underlying operating system platform with the necessary communication layer that will tap into the graphics technology implemented by the host machine. The deployment of the graphics card gives the host computer system the added flexibility of freeing up vital system components. This is primarily due to the role of the DT-301A which takes over the processing of all graphics related data. The main processor on the other hand can now focus on other pending tasks and requests from the other system components. Many graphics intensive software applications will benefit from the deployment of the DT-301A video adapter. Aside from its dedicated video processor and built-in memory components, this hardware component also supports the implementation of video acceleration techniques.
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
In some variations of the DT-301A graphics card, the computer user has the added functionality of using an optional video out component. This allows the host computer system to initiate dual view functions by simultaneously streaming computer displays on the computer monitor and on the television screen. An added feature set that is supported by the device driver of this video hardware component is that it allows the host computer system to boot directly to a television screen even if no computer monitor is attached to the host machine. By using the manufacturer provided device driver the computer user and the installed software applications can maximize the 800 by 600 dots per inch resolution capability of the graphics card using true color mode. The final quality of the output would eventually depend on the capabilities supported by the attached display monitor. The device driver also supports the proprietary motion compensation technology applied on digital video playbacks. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and DT-301A errors before installing any driver updates.
