CPU vs GPU

Cps vs gpu


 The graphics card is now the sine qua non of every gaming PC...

There are plenty of other cool components in the rig, but nothing compares to the thrill of unboxing and installing a new GPU to turn a regular machine into a gaming station.


Have you ever wondered why a separate GPU is required?


Why haven't Tech Giants built anything like a dual CPU board where you can tell your machine to use one CPU for programs processing and management and the other CPU for graphics?

Are those big Graphic cards really necessary?


CPUs and GPUs tend to be somewhat similar; they are both silicon-based microprocessors installed on a PCB (commonly known as a Motherboard) with heat sinks attached, but their microarchitecture has some fundamental differences that make them optimized for different roles within your PC.

Swiss Army knives, for instance, are multi-purpose weapon that can cut objects, open wine bottles, and much more...


When each of us has an unfortunate accident, we don't want the surgeon to use a Swiss Army knife to operate on us; instead, we want a surgical knife or even a laser cutter.


Those tools aren't as versatile as a Swiss Army knife, but they are specialized instruments that specialize in a single task.


Similarly, the computer's main CPU can easily perform a variety of tasks; modern computers are very general-purpose devices that can manage spreadsheets, write in Microsoft Word, make Skype calls, listen to profoundly awkward music, and edit audio/video...the list goes on and on


As a result, your CPU must be able to efficiently manage a large number of random and diverse instructions so that you can multitask without wasting a lot of energy.


CPUs, are built to be much more flexible and balance all of these different workloads, whereas the GPU is designed to perform millions of very similar calculations at the same time in parallel. As a result, GPUs are more based on raw dynamic data than a CPU, which is designed to be much more versatile and balance all of these different workloads.


GPU architecture typically includes a large number of identical compute units that deal with solving the similar mathematical functions that determine how a bullet's trajectory, waving Braille aids of glass, or whatever else appears on your screen. In fact, the GPU's highly parallelized nature has led to a rise in the popularity of general-purpose computing on graphics cards or GPGPU.

In a nutshell...

Though GPUs are finding new uses out beyond gaming, you probably won't want to try running your operating system on a graphics card because the differences between your GPU and CPU are still significant. Don't expect the idea of using a graphics card to look over the central process that the CPU does; after all, there's nothing quite like slick graphics.
