Virtual Dictionary


GPGPU, or General-Purpose computation on GPUs, is a phenomenon driven by the increasing power of GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) over traditional CPUs.

The swift development of GPUs themselves, is due to the constant demands placed by immersive virtual environments on better ways to render increasingly realistic, realtime environments.

Ultimately, with GPGPU, CPUs will likely be replaced with general purpose GPUs, leading to a whole new model of much faster and more powerful computing architectures, ideal for virtual environments.
