The SiS 6225 is a type of graphics processing adapter that is based on the chipsets manufactured by the SiS Corporation. As such it is possible that video adapter cards by other Original Equipment Manufacturers may possess the same chipset. The device driver for this particular hardware component though may not be compatible with those of other manufacturers despite having the same chipsets. This is primarily because every device manufacturer attempts to incorporate their unique feature sets into their products. In a sense the device driver for the SiS 6225 can be used to make graphics processing cards from other manufacturers operational but not fully functional. This also means that bundled tools and utilities may only work with this particular video adapter. The device driver for this hardware component is responsible for providing the necessary information to the host computer system to make available the required system resources needed for its operation.
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
Like most graphics processing cards in the computer market, the role of the SiS 6225 is to help reduce the load handled by the main computer processor. This allows for a faster processing of data as well as allocation of more resources to other system critical operations. The device driver for the SiS 6225 ensures that all graphics related data will be directed by the host computer system to the video adapter for better processing. This is made possible by the built-in processor as well as the dedicated memory allotted specifically for graphics data. The presence of this hardware component as well as its corresponding device driver makes it possible for the underlying operating system to meet the requirements of graphics intensive software applications. The device driver also makes it possible for the host machine to render information to the computer user with higher quality in a shorter time. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and SiS 6225 errors before installing any driver updates.
