A Graphic Card is the component of the computer hardware responsible for managing and controlling the video display functions on the screen.

Every contemporary computer uses a graphical interface. The graphics card causes this interface to pop into the eyes through the LCD. At noflufftech.com we can find more information about Graphic Cards and its specifications.

The TechTudo prepared this article to clarify what good is the Graphic Card.

Understand how the GPU works

  • To understand how the GPU works, and the importance of its performance, just take as an example a computer with a screen whose maximum resolution reaches 1366 x 768 pixels, a value quite common in today’s notebooks.
  • Such a screen, no matter how many inches it has, is formed by a width of 1366 pixels (dots) and a height of 768 pixels (dots). This means that the display has a total of 1,049,088 pixels to illuminate. Each point of these has a coordinate, a certain colour and behaviour. Who manages all this is the GPU.
  • These millions of points are constantly changing, as in a game or while playing a full-screen movie. The graphic card coordinates the spectacle behind the cloths, managing the various situations to which each point will be bound in terms of brightness and colour in very short moments.

Dedicated and built-in

There are two large groups of Graphic Cards. The simplest, intended for the average user, and the most powerful, aimed at gamers and hardware enthusiasts.


  • The term “plaque” may sound a bit out of the way, as there is not actually a Graphic Card. What happens is that the graphics processor, usually called the GPU (acronym for Graphics Processor Unit), is embedded inside another chip.There are two alternatives, at least in the world of PCs: AMD or Intel. With the arrival of Windows 8 for ARM processors this will change.
  • On current computers, the GPU is mounted inside the processors. This allows the consumer who does not mind an ultra-powerful Graphic Card – and expensive – give up this equipment and deliver the burden of computer graphics processing to the CPU.



In the past, manufacturing processes and processor architectures were not as refined. Because of this, computers that dispensed with dedicated graphics cards had a soldered GPU on the motherboard.

Dedicated boards

There are basically two types of Graphic Cards: game templates and templates for professional video editing and 3D modeling. In terms of dedicated boards, there are also two brands competing in the global market: Nvidia, with GeForce for gamers and Quaddro for professionals, and AMD, with Radeon for gamers and FirePro for professionals.

You can associate the dedicated Graphic Card with a docked minicomputer on your computer. Just like the motherboard, it needs its own power supply, it has an active cooling system through fans, capacitors and various circuits. In addition, like the computer itself, it has random memory banks and a highly specialised microprocessor: the GPU.

Models for gamers

  • In the gaming and enthusiast market, Nvidia GeForce and AMD Radeon vie for consumer attention.

  • Gamma card models are more capable than the GPUs built into the processors, since they carry more sophisticated features.
  • While the processor needs several other controllers and needs to take care of many functions, the GPU has dedicated dedication to graphic processing.

Professional Templates

Professional models are boards that are capable of handling large and heavy manipulations of editing or video software. At the beginning of the text, we imagine the situation of a GPU that needs to take care of a space of 1366 x 768 pixels.

Among the professional-oriented models, Nvidia and AMD face the Quadro and FirePro lines, respectively.

That’s where Quaddro and FirePro come in. The above example may have been a little overdone, but gives a dimension to the type of application for which these boards are intended.

You might think if they are so powerful, they should run games better than GeForce and Radeon. In fact, in some cases, in processing capacity, they are even stronger, but lose when it comes to running a game because it does not offer the same level of software sophistication and suitability for the tools with which games are created.
