No mention of Evans & Sutherland?
Evans & Sutherland were doing GPU hardware decades before nvidia were formed. This article seems to have a very "consumer PC" slant with no mention of the actual history of 3D graphics. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 08:53, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
ARM buys Apical
there is a great write-up by game developer fabian giessen A trip through the Graphics Pipeline 2011, a little technical though. the wikipedia article seems to miss out on explaining the basics, like a GPU command processor, command buffer, graphics scheduler, user mode, kernel mode, and many others. --ThurnerRupert (talk) 11:04, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
What is the GPU only computer?
A computer which only uses many GPUs and not a CPU. It usually requires a different operating system to perform better. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:587:410A:D400:F1C7:FBA2:7C6F:1F05 (talk) 05:08, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
"GPGPU can be used for many types of embarrassingly parallel tasks" -- who is it that is embarrassed? And why aren't "highly" or "massively" more appropriate adjectives? AllTheGoodNamesWereTaken (talk) 16:30, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
