The Xabre 200 BD3246 is a Graphics Processing Unit with a core clock speed of 200 megahertz, a memory clock speed of 333 megahertz and a robust DDR (double data rate) memory of 64 MB. This GPU makes use of 4 pixel pipelines which are all able to lay down 2 textures at each pass. It does not however have the ability to loop back and lay down more than 2 textures without having to render pass a second time. For more complicated shader calculations, this GPU has to write to its frame buffer and then read the results back. The Xabre 200 BD3246 Graphics Processing Unit also employs the 1.3 version pixel shaders that have a maximum of 12 instructions instruction length of 4 addresses for texture and 8 for arithmetic. Pixel Shaders allows for more complicated pixel processing in 3D applications.
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
This GPU however, does not employ vertex shaders since the DirectX 8 which the device supports do not have a facility to emulate pixel shaders. Instead, pixel shaders can be emulated through multipass rendering. The Xabre 200 BD3246 is a Graphics Processing Unit makes use of FMC or Friction Memory Control for conserving the memory bandwidth. It likewise implements SiS’s exclusive hardware occlusion culling, fast Z-Clear and Z compression algorithms for memory bandwidth conservation. It has a memory bus in 128 bit which translates to ample memory bandwidth with DDR SDRAM. The Xabre 200 BD3246 is a Graphics Processing Unit uses the AGP 8X and was one of the first GPU’s to do so. The AGP 8X provides 2 times the bandwidth that AGP 4X can provide. This GPU also has video and multi-monitor functionalities featuring an incorporated MPEG decoder and 375 megahertz of RAMDAC. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Xabre 200 BD3246 errors before installing any driver updates.
