The GIGABYTE Radeon X1650 is powered by the graphics processing unit developed by ATI Technologies Inc. It makes use of the PCI Express expansion slot on the computer motherboard. Installation of the associated device driver provides access to its 12 pipelines, as well as support for both OpenGL and Microsoft DirectX technologies. The said technologies are two of the most commonly used standards in the area of graphics rendering. This device's memory interface features 128-bit depth with 256Mb dynamic video memory. The device driver also allows for the implementation of the ATI CrossFire technology including the Avivo feature. Usage of these technologies, although supported by the device driver, also requires a motherboard designed for the feature. The device driver allows the computer user to set a maximum screen resolution of 2560 by 1600 pixels, depending on the capability of the attached display monitor.
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 advanced functionality of this graphics card features the use of 90nm technology resulting in faster clock speeds. It is also designed with the use of 130nm double density transistors. The device driver of the GIGABYTE Radeon X1650 taps the power of the graphics processing unit which is capable of producing one of the highest clock speeds in the computer industry. The device driver also allows various software applications to utilize the 3Dc technology, a relatively new concept in compression technologies. This results in better detailed images when rendering graphics for computer games. Finer pixels, better lighting and more textured surfaces are some of the more noticeable features delivered by this graphics card. The driver of the GIGABYTE Radeon X1650 makes it possible to attain 4:1 compression ratios that allows for more details without increasing graphics memory usage. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and GIGABYTE Radeon X1650 errors before installing any driver updates.
