Today almost all the people across the country are using computers. The computer has been designed with lots of parts such as the monitor in which we see our computer screen, using the keyboard, we can write anything in the computer, with the help of which we roam on our computer screen and select icon. The CPU, which is called the brain of the computer that is the motherboard which is the most important part of the computer in which more important parts are placed, such as Processor and RAM. Whatever work is done on the computer, everything is done with CPU.
Today, a new kind of processor is also being used in computers and mobile phones, which makes the performance of your computer and mobile much better than before. The name of this new processor is GPU. The name of the GPU will be heard by a lot of people and those who have not heard about it will be able to know about it from this article today. Today I’m about to tell you what GPU is and how the CPU and GPU differ.
What is GPU?
The GPU’s full form is “Graphics Processing Unit”. Computer Graphics is actually called a computer made by pictures and movies. Whatever the images or visuals we see on the screen of our Computer and Mobile, they are graphics. The GPU is a co-processor that performs a graphical calculation that used to be CPU first, due to the applications coming out of the graphics in the market due to the speed of processing of computer and mobile, the CPU was undergoing a lot of burdens.
What is the GPU’s work process?
Graphics processing unit is the work of rendering images, which means that GPU performs images faster on the screen of the CPU than the CPU because it uses the technique of parallel processing, due to which the GPU has a lot of graphical calculations. At the same time, the speed of image and video increases. In the same way, if we talk about a mobile phone, then whatever process or program mobile it operates, the processor manages and the GPU handles anything on display such as animations, videos, images, and games.
What is the difference between GPU and CPU?
Both Graphics Processing Unit and Central Processing Unit are both a processor which is used to process some program in Computer. If we talk, both of the mobile and computer have the CPU’s processor. It’s a general purpose processor that works all the way as you do some mathematical calculation in it, either do the work of Word and Excel or listen to movies or songs or browse something on the internet whatever you want you to do that the processor does all the work.
But the GPU that is a specific purposed processor that only handles the graphics of your computer and mobile. The GPU handles all the visuals appearing on mobile and computer, the CPU’s work is very rare in this work.
GPUs are used in two ways, one is integrated, that is, it is a part of your processor which handles the graphics as if you have the Intel processor in your computer, and you can use the Intel’s HD where the graphics are seen. Similarly, if a smartphone uses a Qualcomm processor, then there is GPU, or Media Tech’s processor, then there is a Mali GPU. So here are those GPUs which are integrated into the processor and there is a section of them that handles the graphics.
What is Web Browser and how does it work?
The second way to use GPU is dedicated, which is only for laptops and computers as it is applied separately. You may have seen this thing often that people who go to the shop to buy a new laptop or computer ask about the graphics card and if the laptop does not have an integrated graphics card, they can buy a separate card and put it in their computers such as AMD, Intel and ARM. The GPU is more of a requirement for gaming purposes because gaming is used in high graphics or 3D animation. Those people who are fonder of playing games use a dedicated GPU on their laptop or computer. So the performance of gaming gets better because of GPU, while the CPU cannot do it at all.
If we talk about video rendering or image processing then CPU’s architecture is serial processing and GPU is parallel processing and many of them are in the same core, for example, like Intel i7 core processor. These cores are like small blocks. The GPU has a parallel core, due to which it does image processing much faster than the CPU and we can see the very best quality of images on the computer.
