The ATI Radeon 9550 is a legacy video card by ATI. It has 256MB of built-in DDR memory and is HDCP certified. It offers DVI, VGA, and S-Video outputs, but lacks the HDMI out commonly found on newer computers. The Radeon 9550 uses the now virtually extinct AGPx4/x8 interface, rather than the more common PCI-E interface now often used by non-integrated graphics cards. It supports all features of DirectX 9.0 and OpenGL 1.0, but would most likely have issues with the newer DirectX 10 and 11, and has onboard decoding and encoding acceleration of MPEG1/2/4 video. It can decode HDCP video.
