In order to enable portable or personal computers to rapidly process graphics and game technology, add-on units generally referred to as "graphics cards" are often installed in the computers. Graphics card is a plug-in card that connects to the motherboard via a PCI or AGP slot to enable the computer to process and deliver video. Such cards include a separate processor (GPU), memory chips, and circuitry, all mounted to a circuit board including an edge connector that is adapted to plug into an available slot in the associated computer device. A graphics card is also known as video card, VGA card, video board, video display board, display adapter, video adapter, or graphics adapter. A personal computer is equipped with a video graphics card and a pin connector socket connected to the card and disposed on the outside, and a monitor provided with a video cable having a connector plug for connecting to the graphics card pin connector socket.
