This is the reason we see a lot of buzz around the GPUs and the GPU manufacturers and vendors.

But as a layman, do we have an idea, what is GPU, how does it work, what the the different GPU components etc.

What is GPU?

A Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is an electronic device or circuit designed primarily for rendering and processing video and image data on a computer screen. GPUs are also known as Visual Processing Units (VPUs) because they excel at handling visual data. They are optimized for parallel processing, allowing them to perform multiple tasks simultaneously, making them exceptionally fast at handling mathematical and graphical workloads. GPUs are instrumental in providing 2D and 3D graphics in computer games and various other visual applications. In recent years, GPUs have become a critical component in fields such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, scientific research, and simulations, as they significantly reduce the time required to solve complex mathematical problems.
