please help fast on GPU heat

hi i need a fast answer about why GPU's get hotter than sound cards.
the answer cant be they calculate more.
thnx

  1. They work hard a lot of pixels to process. They have a high power requirement more than your CPU in many cases! And most of them have max op temp in the 95°-105°C range. Normally in the high 70's°C under load and you have nothing to worry about
  2. GPUs use the most power out of any component on your PC, in turn they produce the most heat.
  3. no its because newer GPU's have a proccesor in them but nvm thnx for helping

    You mean G (raphics) P (rocessing) U (unit)?

    ... did older ones just work by magic? All GPUs have processors in them... that is how they work, it is a specialized processor to run the graphical elements on a PC so the CPU doesn't have to. The reason they get hot, is because these processors require quite a bit of power to run, more power = more heat. Sound cards do a fraction of the work a GPU does, and they also have processors on them, but they don't require even close to the amount of processing power a graphics processor does, so they barely produce heat at all.
