CP & GPU Question Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Video CPUs Graphics Last response: April 16, 2011 5:51 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Ramcooker April 16, 2011 5:32:57 PM Enlighten me please.

Nowdays GPUs can even offload some of the program calculations, namely any physics based calculations. You still need the CPU to do most of the actual calculations, such as AI. The CPU decides what you should see, the GPU than actually renders the visual representation. There are new processors that combine these functions (AMD APUs) but its still a CPU and a GPU that have simply been connected on the micro architectural level. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
