This particular graphics processing hardware is manufactured based on the video chipsets generated by ATI Technologies Inc. It is designed to be hosted on the PCI express port of the computer motherboard and lessen the load that is handled by the main computer processor. Basically the installation of the proper device driver will allow the GIGABYTE Radeon X1550 to instruct the host operating system platform to forward all graphics related data to it for better and faster processing. The manner of processing the graphics data is handled in conjunction with the dedicated graphics processor and the built-in memory module of the video adapter. This translates not only to a better image quality rendered on the computer screen but also to a substantial boost in the processing speed of the host machine. The device driver also acts as the interpreter for the supported hardware component and the attached display monitor to make sure that all video signals will be properly understood and correctly rendered on the computer screen.
