The device has a catalyst controller that enables one to configure the settings and it also has a 3D image quality control. It also uses Hyper Z technology which enables enhances the performance of the hardware. The device accomplishes this by eliminating object data that are irrelevant and the end user can not see on the display. It has Z cache optimized that enables rendering of real time shadow and fast Z-Buffer Clear.
