Silicon Motion Lynx3DM family is a display or graphics/video controller which is produced by Silicon Motions Inc. A video controller is a device which is used to generate Television video signals for a gaming as well as computing system. Some of the display controllers are also responsible for the generation of sound signals though this isn't the central purpose. The Silicon Motion Lynx3DM family has a number of desirable features which make it a product of choice among graphic controller users. It offers improved multi- display as well as MPEG2/DVD playback which is hardware accelerated. The product provides superior graphics and has been incorporated into several other products by other companies. For instance, Lynx3Dm was incorporated into Mebius Murumasa notebook by Sharp which is available in Japanese markets. IBM also included Lynx3DM in its mini- notebooks known as ThinkPad i Series s30 which is also available in Japanese markets.
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 Silicon Motion Lynx3DM family has been designed using the ReduceOn technology for power management. ReduceOn is a technology for power management which varies clock as well as power algorithmically to functional units with reference to the demands of the system. Thus when using the Silicon Motions Lynx3DM family, users will find that the consumption of power on their devices is radically reduced. Lynx3DM also has a 2D as well as 3D engine for mobile graphics with 128-bit performance. The graphics engine also has embedded 4 MB SDRAM, an 8 MB SDRAM or a 16 MB SDRAM. SDRAM is an acronym for Synchronous dynamic random access memory and it comes with a synchronous interface. This implies that it will only respond to control inputs after getting a clock signal. For those looking for a display controller which has low power consumption, the Silicon Motion Lynx3DM family offers a good choice. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Silicon Motion Lynx3DM Family errors before installing any driver updates.
