How To Find Which Graphic Card You Have,It's Details and Uses

Hello Reader's today i am going to give details about graphic card, its used and how to find out which graphics card you are using and its complete details in a very easy manner 


What is Graphic Card?


A video card (also called a video adapter, display card, graphics card, graphics board, display adapter, graphics adapter or frame buffer) is an expansion card which generates a feed of output images to a display (such as a computer monitor). Frequently, these are advertised as discrete or dedicated graphics cards, emphasizing the distinction between these and integrated graphics. Within the industry, video cards are sometimes called graphics add-in-boards, abbreviated as AIBs, with the word "graphics" usually omitted.
This may look complicated I will explain it clearly now Graphic card is very essential part of any computer system which renders processed data into video signal before it is sent to your display (monitor or laptop display).

An integrated graphics card is bound to the motherboard and shares RAM with the CPU, reducing the total amount of RAM available. The minimum required Graphic processor for normal video output is usually inbuilt into processor itself, as graphic calculations are very different (and complex) from actual processing calculations, The much intense one's (Gaming/Video rendering ) could not be handled by processor alone so a dedicated graphic processing chip is required for the job.


A dedicated graphics card (Ati/nVidia) has its own RAM and Processor for generating its images, and does not slow down the computer.


What is the use of Graphic Card? 


We usually use graphic cards to make our overall gaming experience better, and or video editing, authoring. Also a graphics card has its own RAM which it will use in place of taking the pc's ram. Making your pc run faster and better. Without a graphics card, you would be using on board or intergraded graphics. Intergraded graphics share the pc's ram, leaving you with less ram to perform all your day to day activities. A graphics card will help your computer work faster and better. Graphics cards do not affect any discs at all. All your discs will work the same with or without a graphics card

A discrete graphics card allows us to add additional processing power to graphically intensive tasks.


·         Gaming: Gaming is the #1 most frequent use of a discrete GPU. Many games are rendering 3D environments and special effects in real time and it takes some serious computing power to do it. Without a discrete GPU, rendering all of the special effects, shadows, reflections, etc of a modern game becomes too difficult a task for the limited processing power of an on CPU graphics solution. A discrete GPU helps greatly here.
·         3D Visualization: Graphics processing units drive viewport performance in many 3D visualization applications. Everything from Computer Aided Design (CAD) to powerful 3D modelling and VFX platforms like Maya, 3DS Max Software that lets you visualize objects in 3 dimensions relies on the GPU to draw those models in real time as you rotate them, move your view, etc.
·         Larger display environments: Simply put, there is an upper limit to how many monitors you can run at high resolution before you start to need more graphics processing power. Not that lots of people need to drive multiple 4K displays, but hey, some people like to do things like this: 

·         GPU assisted computing: Simply put, discrete graphics cards are very powerful at specific types of computing. More and more software is being written to use GPUs for computational tasks as opposed to graphics tasks.

So, is a GPU important to you?

Well, if you are able to use one of the chips that includes an on chip graphics processor, and if your graphics needs are low (general productivity) then it isn't very important at all.

So as long as you don't play modern heavy games or do video editing rendering and stuff you don't require a dedicated graphic processor every modern intel/Amd processor comes with inbuilt graphic processor like Intel HD which is enough for normal computer usage and tasks


Here now lets go into how to know about the details of graphics card:
 


1)      Turn on your Laptop/PC

2)     Press “WIN+R” this starts RUN


3)     Type “dxdiag” in Run Dialog Box and Press “Ok”


4)     Now Direct X Diagnostic Tool Window will appear

5)     Here on the first tab we can find details on our Laptop/PC  BIOS/RAM/Processer/Model Number and some other details

6)     Now lets move on to Next Tab which is “Display”


7)     Here we get the details on graphic card. We get the info on the company name, Memory etc,.. 


  



That's It,  this is how you find out the details of your graphic card
