Matrox PH-A8X128F. Graphics adapter memory type: GDDR, Memory bus: 256 bit. Maximum resolution: 2048 x 1536 pixels. DirectX version: 8.1, OpenGL version: 1.3, Dual Link DVI. Interface type: AGP 8x. Cooling type: Active

This is an auto-generated long summary of Matrox PH-A8X128F GDDR graphics card based on the first three specs of the first five spec groups.
Maximum resolution *
The maximum number of pixels that can be displayed in the image. It is usually quoted as width × height,: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels.
2048 x 1536 pixels
Graphics adapter memory type *
The type of memory used by the video card. Often a combination of dedicated memory (Video RAM or VRAM) and dynamic system memory is used. UMA stands for Unified Memory Architecture, and is a computer memory architecture that allows the graphics processing unit to share system memory. Other abreviations: RAM = Random Access Memory, SDRAM = synchronous dynamic RAM, DDR = double-data-rate.
Memory bus *
Hardware and software that connects the main memory to the memory controller in computer systems. Originally, general-purpose buses like VMEbus and the S-100 bus were used, but to reduce latency, modern memory buses are designed to connect directly to DRAM chips, and thus are designed by chip standards bodies such as JEDEC.

Ports & interfaces
Interface type *
AGP 8x
Dual VGA
I/O ports
An interface on a device to which you can connect another device.
2x DVI-I
TV tuner integrated *
Device has an in-built TV tuner.
DirectX version *
DirectX is a collection of APIs (application programming interfaces) for easily handling tasks related to game programming on the Microsoft Windows operating system.
OpenGL version *
OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is a specification defining a cross-language cross-platform API for writing applications that produce 3D computer graphics (and 2D computer graphics as well). The interface consists of over 250 different function calls which can be used to draw complex three-dimensional scenes from simple primitives.
Dual Link DVI *
A dual-link DVI interface sends data over both of the DVI links to the monitor, and this is how higher resolutions are achieved. With dual-link DVI, a resolution of 2048 x 1536 is possible.
Cooling type *
The method used to cool the device or to cool the air around the device.
