The VGS3D-AGP Display device is manufactured by Aztech. It is a 2D and 3D graphics accelerator that offers best in class performance. It can provide users with high end functionalities such as alpha blending, perspective correction, z-buffering and motion compensation to improve DVD software playback. It also employs a high end single cycle Tri-linear filtering that delivers superior 3D graphics performance and exceptional image quality among others. This graphics accelerator is also the first graphics accelerator to integrate compression of hardware texture that is DirectX 6’s adopted compression standard or hardware. The VGS3D-AGP Display graphics accelerator is bundled with an Easy Start manual containing an explanation of the operations users are required to perform when they install the device. This device makes use of the Savage 3D chipset because of its low cost and its implementation of the S3TC or Hardware S3 Texture Compression.
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 S3TC or Hardware S3 Texture Compression is a feature of the DirectX 6 that is licensed by Microsoft. This feature is capable of allowing developers to compress by _ to 1/6 their texture data’s normal size all the while preserving the original artwork’s image quality. Various games that make use of the S3TC and DirectX 6 will greatly benefit from the VGS3D-AGP Display graphics accelerator performance in terms of reduced CPU load, enhanced image quality and faster rates for texture fill. This graphics accelerator has support for 2X AGP, maximum resolution of 1600 X 1200 with 32 bit color, dual rendering pipeline in 128 bit and simultaneous monitor display. The VGS3D-AGP Display graphics accelerator also implements Full AGP which includes support for direct memory execution and full side band AGP. It also features an on board SDRAM of 8 MB and a RAMDAC of 250 megahertz with Gamma correction. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and VGS3D-AGP Display errors before installing any driver updates.
