Video BIOS

Video BIOS

Video BIOS is the BIOS of a graphics card in a computer.

Much the way the system BIOS provides a set of functions that are used by software programs to access the system hardware, the video BIOS provides a set of video-related functions that are used by programs to access the video hardware. The video BIOS interfaces software to the video chipset in the same way that the system BIOS does for the system chipset.

When the computer is started it usually displays the graphics card vendor, model, BIOS version and amount of graphics memory.
