OpenGL What does the CPU do and what does the GPU do?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a site or some kind of documentation that tells what openGL functions are done by the GPU and which are done by the CPU?

in the programming sense of a function... everything affects the cpu sinse the cpu handles the calling of functions and such... (and whether the GPU does anything at all is... as he said... implementation specific)

as far as functions in the sense of functionality... there are a few generalizations you can make, the GPU will, transform, light, fog, color ect your scene

heh very general huh?

It seems the vendor docs ought to tell you this for each card.

Those kind of internal details are very often considered classified information and are only available under NDA (if at all, most of the time they won't be available to third parties at all).
