GPU & CPU
« on: August 21, 2017, 01:51:27 »

Hi guys,
1-What's Difference between GPU & CPU Render?
2-Can I Use CPU & GPU In the Same Time? How?
3-What's Difference between RAM & VRAM ?
Notes:
My OpenGL 1.4.0
My CPU Intel Pentium 4 2.8Ghz
My GPU Intel 82945G Express Chipset

  • GPU rendering uses hardware designed for rendering to render, where as CPU uses hardware that does not have a specialty. Because of this GPUs are much faster and much more efficient at rendering stuff.
  • While you probably could, the CPU would slow down the GPU so much it would not be worth all the extra effort. Would be the best performance and feature-set from only using a GPU.
  • RAM is used by the CPU and VRAM is used by the GPU. The V in VRAM is Video.
