4 REASONS WHY APU IS THE NEXT INDUSTRY KILLER


The market for GPU is going down rapidly as surge for crypto-currency mining is hiking up thus increasing the prices for GPU by which clearly Gamers and Animation designers along with not to mention, game developers are suffering a good effect from.
But does that mean the End of the Gaming Industry or (more exaggeratingly); the end of 'cheap and easy entertainment world? The answer to this stupid sounding question is no.
This might seem intimidating at first about writing a blog on GPU alternative, what are you trying to say that we play GTA  V on Intel Built-in graphics? No, I am not.
As the GPU crisis worsened by the end of the day a new player stepped into the game, The AMD APU or The Accelerated Processing Unit which is also commonly know as the 'fusion'.

But what exactly is an APU?

In simple words, an APU is a fusion (or mixture) of a CPU and a GPU. So in theory it can both perform the calculations needed for the processing by the CPU as well as render the High-quality graphics needed by those resource-intensive games you bought at that saturday sale at Amazon and Steam (if you use e-bay to buy games, I am gonna erect a statue for you.).
So why is it 'much better' then standard GPUs?
Because, 

1. It is Cheap.

If you think that this is some bad justification for buying Tech, trust me you have to focus on this aspect. The AMD Ryzen 5 with RX Vega 11 Graphics APU costs you about $165 on amazon. An EVGA Nvidia Geforce GT 1030 GPU (equivalent of the Ryzen APU above) combined with an Intel Core i5 6500 (CPU+GPU) costs you about $365!! Which is some major price setback when you consider that both of the systems function almost similar (if not same).

2. It delivers almost the same performance.

After the above point which tells about price cringe of GPUs, some of you who are extreme GPU supporters might want to defend the super GPU race by saying that it is much more performance minded than money minded and this too is not true at-least in the case of this APU. It can play almost all latest AAA-titles like Call Of Duty WWII, GTA V and CS:GO with good fluidity considering the price it's charging you. Plus you can now concentrate on spending your remaining budget on getting a better Motherboard or Cooling system.

3. Excellently Optimised

Not knowing too much about this point in the first place but after using the AMD APU for a week and half, I found that some games and graphic intensive applications are working better than they would do on their Intel and Nvidia working counter-parts. Plus GTA V unexpectedly worked much better on this APU on 1080p Maximum setting as compared to the to GT 1030 which is non-existent for me after this soul capturing experience.

4. Safe from any future Price surge.

Because very less people might want to use this rather 'weak' looking APU, it is almost assured that these tech-boxes will not be getting a shocking price surge anytime soon. Though it is equally justified in thinking that some crypto miners will use it but not all of them because they are too sure that it is not as good as the normal graphics chips are. Plus some of the new coming crypto-miners are not as technical as the old ones are so they just want to ''Make money quick easy'' (that's just sh!t) and thus they willbe focusing on the conventional graphic chips available to them.

Plus for a bonus point: These APUs are relatively easy to assemble if you are a make it yourself-type guy.
