Once upon a time… getting the content of a computer screen and putting it on the network for a remote access was done entirely in software. The CPU was solely responsible for making sure the app content is rendered, encoded into a video frame, and shipped over the network so a remote user on the other end of the wire can access their desktop and work remotely.

Graphics acceleration became available to desktops and high-end PCs so users can have spectacular gameplay experiences or increased productivity while using high-end computer-aided design applications.

Inevitably democratization of the GPU prices drove the cost down and the GPUs in the desktops became prevalent. Now every app on a modern desktop, laptop, or even a mobile phone can take advantage of a GPU acceleration.
