The graphics card comes optimized for a variety of technologies and standards like DirectCompute that makes GPGPU or General-Purpose Computing on Graphics Processing Units possible on Microsoft OSs like Windows 7 and Windows Vista. What this means is that general purpose applications can tap into the GPU in order to perform computations that would otherwise be taken care of by the CPU. This provides better load balancing and maximizes resource utilization, making all applications run faster by using the power of the GPU, and not just the graphically intensive ones. DirectCompute is distributed as part of Microsoft?s DirectX and runs on GPUs that support vesions 10 and 11 of the API.
