The R9250-128CDT graphics processing unit makes use of the Radeon 9250 3D Graphics Accelerator by ATI AMD. It has VPU clock of 240 megahertz, process technology of 0.15u and 128 bit DDR memory of 128 MB. It delivers the ideal balance of superior 3D graphics, support for multi monitor, and improved multimedia experience at an affordable cost. This device utilizes the unified software suite of ATI called the CATALYST to provide users with complete compatibility with software drivers. It can likewise implement color space and iDCT conversion, and MPEG 2 decoding along with motion compensation. The GPU R9250-128CDT also makes use of high speed 400 megahertz RAMDACs that has support for QXGA displays along with the industry’s fastest refresh rates, and display resolutions of up to a maximum of 2048 X 1536 at 85 hertz. This device employs integrated dual display controllers for simultaneously driving 2 displays each with their refresh rates and resolutions. It is also compatible with the Hydravision software which delivers full control over configurations of multi-display.
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 graphics processing unit also makes use of the SmartShader technology which has complete support for DirectX 8.1 programmable vertex and pixel shaders in hardware. This technology allows for support for 1.4 pixel shaders with up to 6 textures and 22 instructions for every rendering pass and support for 1.1 vertex shaders with up to 128 instructions. The SmoothVision technology is also used by the R9250-128CDT GPU. This technology offers features for image quality improvement for OpenGL and Direct3D applications. It features full scene anti-aliasing that is programmable and can support two to six samples with quality and performance modes that can be configured by users. This technology also employs advanced anisotropic filtering which can support two to sixteen samples to render complicated textures with little or no impact on performance. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and R9250-128CDT errors before installing any driver updates.
