Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900 Overview
The Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900 is part of the Intel® 915 Express Chipset, Intel® 910GL Express Chipset, and Mobile Intel® 915 Express Chipset Families. This third-generation architecture supports the latest LCD and widescreen displays, High-Definition TV (HDTV) and dynamic modes, and hardware acceleration for Microsoft* DirectX* 9.
Optimal Use of System Resources
Intel® Graphics require dedicated memory and processing. Applications have divergent memory needs. For example, email and Internet browsing require very little graphics memory while games require more.
Intel GMA 900 graphics supports both of these demand levels through a unique intelligent memory management scheme called Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT). DVMT handles these diverse applications by providing the maximum system memory available for general computer usage and additional graphics memory when a 3D-intensive application requests it. The Intel GMA 900 graphics architecture also takes advantage of the high-performance Intel processor installed in your system.
Advanced Display Technology
Intel GMA 900 graphics supports Dual Independent Display technology, allowing two separate displays to be connected to a computer at the same time. You can use this capability to create a larger desktop work surface spanning multiple displays so that applications can be moved from one monitor to another or displayed on more than one monitor simultaneously. This feature can also be used to play digital media on one display, while using the chat or email function on the other.
