The History of the GPU (Springer)
Friday, 03 February 2023

This is the first book in a three-part series that traces the development of the GPU. In this volume titled "Steps to Invention", Dr. Jon Peddie traces the initial development of the GPU for games, and explores GPU concepts.


This volume explores the development of GPU concepts from the 1970s when computer graphics was developed for computer-aided design of automobiles and airplanes, through to the development of the integrated transform and lighting engine at the end of the 1990s and the expansion of the development and capabilities of the graphics controller in pursuit of the ultimate device, a fully integrated self-contained GPU.
