What is a Graphics Card?

A graphics card is responsible for displaying the image you seen on screen. The images are made up by thousands of tiny dots called pixels, on a high resolution screen the graphics card can be displaying millions of pixels. Originally at the start of the PC revolution the graphics card’s purpose was only to display the image on the screen. The amount of memory present on a graphics card was very small and was not needed to a great extent where the modern cards can have several gigabytes of memory onboard. The modern graphics card is capable of powering breathtaking games, displaying 3D perspectives that show characters leaping out of the screen, running 1080P Full HD video in all its glory and can accelerate non-3D applications using their amazing processing power.

The game developers make their games to work with DirectX and the graphics card vendors make the cards work with DirectX ensuring compatibility. The latest DirectX is version 11 which currently has the potential to provide the very best graphical images on PC surpassing what is possible on even the most powerful games consoles. OpenGL : Like DirectX OpenGL is a standard specification for developers to use to ensure compatibility. Unlike DirectX however OpenGL is compatible across multiple operating systems including Windows and Macintosh. OpenGL has decreased in popularity over recent years for games although there are still titles released which make use of...
