boner. thumbs up if you like
I have a Intel dual core and geforce 750 ti, and i get 40 fps while playing Fortnite. Will upgrading the cpu will help my fps and i also edit videos for my channel and i feel like i might need a good cpu for editing. Someone tell me asap :)

GPU = for graphic Cpu = for frame/sec or smooth the game

Thanks for the explanation. This does clear up a lot especially around 4:50

I have an Intel i7 860 and a Quadro NVS 450. I still can't decide if i would buy an i3 7100 or an GT 1030

This channel makes really great videos...not a bunch of opinionated predictions that are never to come to fruition. Just real information, with video and pictures to illustrate the points. Good job... liked, subscribed and notified... thanks for the hard work guys

Error 416 Maybe perhaps discus how the difference of what a game that is GPU bound vs a game which is CPU bound... As i'm sure many of your viewers don't understand the difference.. And you didn't really touch on that in this video..
Heathcliff CAMPBELL (4 months ago)
How about a video on upgrading GPUs and CPUs? Just general advice like "You should upgrade the CPU every 2nd time you upgrade the GPU." I've heard that is accurate. Do you agree? LOVE the new upcoming round of games, but will need a new graphics card myself, before I'll be able to enjoy them...

Could you look at hitboxes in depth , such as how they work, are created and why there are numerous problems surrounding them?

I think this would be interesting also in another perspective: Video Rendering with Software such as Vegas or Premier.

CPU also provides raw pre processed frames to GPU which does all the coloring, post processing effects, etc. Another reason why processor needs to be even with a GPU

well most modern pc games requires for recommend specs an GTX 1060 6GB video card while they mostly only need an i5 processor does that mean that most games need an stronger video card than an processor?

Everything you see is handled by GPU and everything you cant see is by operated by CPU.
if the cpus keep getting better and they will we don't need gpus anymore

Kyudo Kun (4 months ago)
CPU: The one that translate/interpret codes like: Application programming interface, OS, BIOS etc. in a hardware mode. Then sending the information to other PC components like RAM, GPU, HDD and then send it back to CPU. It's like a never ending loop of processes happening inside the system. GPU: A component that is basically build for General Purpose computing (GPGPU) to process number crunching computation - which is more faster than the CPU by miles. A GPU is composed of hundreds/thousands 'Shader Threads/Cores" (Stream Processor or CUDA) to process complicated stressful apps like games's Visual effects, Physics, Tessellation, Anti-Aliasing and even AI.. Something that a CPU can't all handle.

If cpus are about logic, they are not doing there job, look at minecraft
Mr. Blunt (4 months ago)
Can't these creators just make a GPU that includes the CPU somehow to save the hassle? Hmmm GREAT IDEA!

Clint-Excalibur71 Well it was pretty terrible sarcasm because GOOD sarcasm usually has a good point behind it which yours doesn't.

Clayton Hernandez no shit, it was sarcasm, but you probably didnt pick it up
Mr. Blunt (4 months ago)
Clint-Excalibur71 I’m talking about with a high quality CPU and a high quality GPU in one. Not that shit “Intel graphics”.
Clint-Excalibur71 (4 months ago)
yeah, it's called Intel, been doing that since 2010

Cockobango RangoJango (4 months ago)
so for short: GPU: can do things much faster but only specific things CPU: can do everything but not as fast am i right?

Are more realistic hitboxes harder to render or harder to make if it isn't why arent developers making hitboxes that are more like realife

That moment when he is saying CPU and showing the Xbox APU. GPU= Bulk Simple Mathematics Visual CPU= Conological Varied Mathematics APU= Parallel Compute i.e Combination

Cpu low level math equations +,-,x,div. reads code using logic to push around memory and do work with it. Gpu very fast floating point equations, like geometry (or decimal point), more memory 4gb-8gb etc allows for larger, more and higher resolution textures, memory speed GDDR4 8000Mhz-10000Mhz, which is very important for fps and kept close to the GPUs processing core, instead of using DDR4 3200Mhz halfway across the board like APUs. I think CPU "Equations per Hertz or second" effects GPU bottlenecking (IPC).
XxKidnoffxX (4 months ago)
APU for someone who don't update, like a console gamer..... Your right, but Sony and Microsoft sell us their 'update' with a new console for the same generation....

Don't forget APU which is what you were calling a CPU the whole video.

Sooo Is it like ?? Cpu is what happening Gpu is what you see ??? CMIIW

Don't forget about Physx too. The gpu is more capable of the physics in video games.

Spend twice as much on your GPU. So if you had $300 to spend. Spend $100 on your CPU and $200 on your GPU.
EscapeVelo (5 months ago)
If you had $600 to spend, then $200 on your CPU and $400 on your GPU.

What if in future we made quantum computer enough small to use at home and invented programing languages, softwares and even games then how it will be used as a cpu or gpu or apu? Or maybe something different i don't know but i wanna know.
Starman Gaming (5 months ago)
The way you explained it, Falcon, reminded me about the Left and Right hemispheres of the brain, where the left side (CPU) handles logical thinking and reasoning, while the right side (GPU) handles abstract thinking and creative processes. Weirdly, the APU reminded me of how some brains function by using both in a singular process, like some select cases of Autism or Aspergers. So, the whole group of Processing Units are just parts of a Mechanical brain.

CPU excels at Complex calculation with a small amount of data. GPU excels at Simple calculation with a huge amount of data.

Would you say my FX 8350 is bottlenecking my 1060 6g or at least, holding me back from getting better frames in some modern games at 1080p? Witcher 3 Ultra can get to low 50's in forests and FF15 can run in the 40's with everything set to average during intense fights and 50's in car rides.

In the end, Having a good gpu is better with an average cup, than the vice versa. Talking by expirience. You cant go with trash cpu ofc, use reasoning, get an average cpu and a good gpu and youa re done. Period.

So if I had to spend more money on either a gpu or a cpu on my new desktop for making games (Maya,Substance Painter & Designer, ZBrush, Unreal Engine 4) Which do I put more money towards?

cpu if u are programing. gpu if working the graphics

So basically start with an i7 and a gtx geforce980? Of course u will have to upgrade but its a decent startin set up imo

To be more precise: CPU is optimized for all around tasks and serial operations (SISD) while the GPU is optimized for a specific task and parallel operations (SIMD). Back in the days the cpu did all the work including graphics but as graphics became more computing intensive a seperate processor was designed just for it in order to off-load some of the work from the main processor (graphics related operations were by far the most intensive a cpu had to do). In recent years GPUs have been put to use in applications other than graphics; these were the kind of tasks which required relatively simple but repetitive operationa (for which parallelism was ideal) and thus came the rise of GPGPU. As for Bitcoin mining: yea GPUs would be better at hash calculations than CPUs but bitcoin miners use an ASIC for that (which is waay faster than a GPU for that purpose)

4:52 My computer in a nutshell. It has a 1050ti, but only an intel Q9400. Also which game is being played at: 5:05? Horizon 3?
Wasn't this done a very long time ago? It was one of the first Gameranx videos I ever watched
