Graphics Card
What is Graphics Card?

A graphics card is a type of display adapter or video card installed within most computing devices to display graphical data with high clarity, color, definition and overall appearance. A graphics card provides high-quality visual display by processing and executing graphical data using advanced graphical techniques, features and functions.

The Graphics card is responsible for delivering the image you see on your PC monitor. Its GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) processes the data and changes it into a signal to the monitor.
