What are the benefits of using a GPU?

Hi everybody. The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is the headquarters for analyzing and processing data transmitted through instructions. Does the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) have the same features as the CPU? Please help me find the difference between them. Show me the benefits of using GPU. Thanks!

In basic terms using GPU to offload workload from CPU is very beneficial to system performance, for instance we do this with NVIDIA PhysX all the time. Here is a good article

Hi StevenSperry

Welcome to the ROG forum.

In short,

A dedicated GPU will give you much better gaming performance than a cpu's integrated graphics.

You can still play games with a cpu's integrated graphics but even at a lower resolution, you still may not hit the minimum of 60FPS.

You need a dedicated gpu for a high performance gaming pc and there are many models to choose from.

Your current system specs and monitor can help you decide on a gpu.
