Who needs a video card?

About the aggressiveness of video

Video games clearly show the current level of computer technology — their software is able to eat the most modern video hardware. Therefore, those who find pleasure in the illusory world of computer games need an expansive video processor (GPU), AMD/ATI’s Radeon or Nvidia’s GeForce, located separately from the central processor (CPU) of a system block or laptop. Although modern CPUs have their own built-in GPUs, today these are not powerful enough to provide 25 frames per second for a comfortable game performance with a high quality of details at a high definition display of 1920 by 1080 pixels. For example, Intel HD Graphics 4600 that is used in the processor micro-architecture Haswell (2014) only gives 9 frames per second on average at the Heaven benchmark developed by the Russian company Unigine Corp. Fortunately, the power of a built-in GPU is more than sufficient to work on the cutting edge of fundamental physics, where the unbounded flight and realization of your own fantasy provides the satisfaction immeasurably greater than a live in the virtual reality of video games, drawn on a screen.

Fantasies of the video-game programmers look entertaining, but these are naive as compared with vivid imagination of qualified physicists.
