This video adapter card is powered by the Radeon video processing unit which is operating at the speed of 240 MHz and supported by a dedicated Random Access Memory of 128 Megabytes. These dedicated components allows for faster and better handling of graphics related information while freeing up the main processing unit to handle more system critical processes. When using the correct device driver the SAPPHIRE RADEON 9250 128MB can support various technologies implemented by the host operating system environment. These technologies are intended to improve the capability of the display subsystem of the host computer system by allowing for better details while processing information in a relatively shorter time. The device driver is also designed by the SAPPHIRE RADEON 9250 128MB manufacturers to comply with existing industry standards in implementing video related information. By using a hardware component dedicated solely to processing graphics related information the computer system gains the functionality of handling not only 2D but also 3D environments.
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
Aside from supporting industry and operating system standards in video technology the device driver also allows the host computer system to implement proprietary technologies of its manufacturer. The device driver allows the SAPPHIRE RADEON 9250 128MB to deploy smartshader technology along with video immersion and fullstream functionalities. These features are designed to allow for better quality of video playback. Graphics processing cards are considered by many as the center of the display subsystem primarily because it hosts the video processor. However, the device driver allows this specific hardware component to successfully interact with the other elements of the display subsystem. This means that the device driver allows the supported hardware component to lower or increase its functionality based on the capabilities of the other elements involved in the display subsystem. The device driver is also partly responsible for providing the user interface that will allow the computer user to modify the default configuration of the video adapter. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and SAPPHIRE RADEON 9250 128MB errors before installing any driver updates.
