Your GPU is Useless Now
Your GPU is Useless Now. It’s been a growing trend that more and more games are using your CPU in a PRETTY dramatic way. You would think that since graphics are getting better, that your GRAPHICS CARD would have to work proportionally as hard, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. General-purpose computing on the CPU has become the go-to. Even a top-end CPU from just 3 years ago, can’t push 60 FPS in some games.
On top of that, most people don’t want to be upgrading CPUs frequently because it is a lot more expensive than buying just a new GPU. You might have to also upgrade you motherboard and RAM at the same time. Is this only going to get worse?
