Kinda like an extra core with special features. enzo matrix a c 131 à CPUs July 31, 2010 3:35:16 AM smelly_feet said:I'm not talking crossfire or sli, I mean gpu assisting the cpu. Kinda like an extra core with special features. That's the definition of the Graphics Processing Unit. Anything it can do faster is offloaded onto the GPU, provided there is software support. Gaming obviously makes massive use of this. smelly_feet August 21, 2010 8:17:03 PM Best answer selected by smelly_feet. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
