If the game requires the pixel shader and your card does not have it or support it then your only option is to upgrade to a supported card. Hope this helps.

I have Windows 7 32bit and a 6200 512 AGP video card. My motherboard has 8X capability and set up properly in the bios. I have downloaded the latest Nvidea drivers for the card and they installed OK. When...


@rick_pere159

The reason for this is that your AGP video card only support DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 (pixel shader and it's operating at 2133 MB/s max - this is how fast it can fill up pixels in a video-game). The reason Windows is rating it low is because Windows tests your card on how many pixel it can shade in a 3-D graphics environment - since VGA operates in a parallel simultaneous transmission, it can only occupy 1 lane with a transfer rate of 2133MB/s at max - which is not bad with a subscore rating of 2.5 which is usually sufficient in the desktop graphics and 3?D graphics categories. In order for you to get a 3.0 and above rating for the video card, you must have a GPU that supports D3D (Direct 3D) v10.0, and pixel shader model 4.0.

Take note that the higher clock speed and pixel shader version of your video card, that faster it will get in 3D acceleration - thus higher video card rating.


Hope this information helps.

GPU sheader 2


The ATI Radeon 9250 card only supports Pixel Shader version 1.1 or 1.4 and older. It will not support Pixel Shader version 2.0. You would need to upgrade your graphics card if your game or application requires Pixel Shader 2.0.

Pixel shader


A pixel shader computes color and other attributes of each pixel. Pixel shaders range from always outputting the same color, to applying a lighting value, to doing bump mapping, shadows, specular highlights, translucency and other phenomena. A pixel shader alone cannot produce very complex effects, because it operates only on a single pixel, without knowledge of a scene's geometry or of neighboring pixels. A pixel shader is a computation kernel function. Pixel shaders can alter the depth of the pixel (for Z-buffering), or output more than one color if multiple render targets are active

HOW TO GET PIXEL SHADER3.0


Pixel Shader 3 is a hardware feature. You can only get Pixel Shader 3 by getting a new graphics card, as it cannot be 'installed' with software. Please don't use all caps, it doesn't make people want to help.

Pixel and Shader 3.0 Support


Pixel Shader 3 (PS 3), is just a technique used by video cards to render images to your screen.
In order to get a video card to support PS 3 you need to install DirectX 9c (the 'c' is very important, version 9 is not good enough).
Unfortunately your card only supports DX9 not DX9c and will therefore only play games that support Pixel Shader 2 or below.

Your only option in order to play the games you want, is to upgrade your Video card to one that supports DX9c or higher.
Geforce 6 & 7 series cards all support DX9c.
One other thing, if you are looking to upgrade check and see if your card is AGP or PCIe. I have a feeling that they only made the FX5200 in AGP but check it to make sure.
AGP cards are almost obsolete now, but Nvidia & ATI do still make a few and they can be found on large online PC retail outlets or perhaps try and pick up a good one on Ebay.

Hope this helps

Run the test below to see what you need to run it.

pixel shader is built into the card so therefore a better card is required to play the game.
