How To Update Graphics Card In Windows 10

A piece of hardware that is installed on a computer is also known as a video card, display card, or graphics adapter is generally known as a Graphics Card. It generates all the text and pictures which display on your screen. Every processor has a built-in onboard graphics card.
 
The Work of the graphics card is to handle all works like a desktop designing, decoding videos, and gaming programs. Intel and NVIDIA manufacture Graphical Processing Units (GPU) for modern PCs and laptops.
