The Genoa Phantom 64G-2000 PCI is a type of video graphics expansion card which is inserted into the PCI slot of the computer motherboard. Using the accompanying driver, the hardware provides 3D graphics acceleration functionalities that are commonly used in the areas of computer gaming, image editing, and animation among others. The Genoa Phantom 64G-2000 PCI device driver taps the functionality provided by the S3 Trio64 chipset. The S3 Trio64 chipset was at one point one of the more popular graphic chips used for personal computer machines. This video accelerator card took advantage of the integration of graphics acceleration functionality on computer motherboards which saw the proliferation of built-in video cards. One of the distinct advantages provided by the Genoa Phantom 64G-2000 PCI is that it frees up resources. This is done by using its own video processing unit for rendering images onto the display screen.
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 Genoa Phantom 64G-2000 PCI incorporates three different components under a single ASIC for added functionality. The clock generator, the graphics core and the RAMDAC were now found in one video processing unit board. This technology not only lowered the cost of production, but also simplified the manufacturing process for video cards. The device driver of the Genoa Phantom 64G-2000 PCI delivered integrated graphics solutions using the 868, as well as the 864 accelerator chips. Applications now have a way of performing color space conversion processes aside from scaling of horizontal linear filtering. The memory modules used EDO DRAM or FPM DRAM architectures. It also features a wider 64-bit DRAM interface compared to its lower cost 32-bit version. In terms of rendering quality, the result was a clearer and crisper image limited only by the capabilities of the display monitor. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Genoa Phantom 64G-2000 PCI errors before installing any driver updates.
