CPUs are designed for general-purpose computing, able to handle anything thrown at them. As such, they’re ideal for running a flexible array of applications, such as an email server, web client, or word processing application. Yet, custom hardware designed to do that job will be faster than a CPU if focused on a specific task. An excellent example of this is a General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit (GPUs) built differently from CPUs. Explicitly designed to generate realistic 3D graphics at speed, AI, Deep learning, video analytics, and more… GPUs typically have slower core speeds than CPUs. Still, they can have thousands of cores running in parallel. The result is that specific mathematical operations can run faster on a GPU than a CPU.
