Basic Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) design concepts

A graphics processing unit (GPU) is a processor like CPU and TPU for faster graphics processing. We have walked through the basic concepts in graphics pipeline such as:

  • Vector processing
  • Primitive Processing
  • Rasterization
  • Fragment processing
  • Pixel operations

and demonstrated the basic Graphics Processing Unit architecture with the shader programming model.
