I hear it everywhere, but what exactly is rendering? Also, what does native rendering mean and what is rendering power CPU's? I know, I'm not up to speed with the basics yet. LOL. I appreciate any help, thanks.

Hi there!

Ill see if I can help you out with your questions. Rendering is the proccess of drawing 3d objects to the screen put in simple terms. Not sure about the others tbh.

Rendering is the process of displaying graphics on a computer screen.
To display an image the computer has to do some heavy calculations. These calculations can be made via CPU or GPU (Graphics Processing Unit - video card's processor).
Most modern games rely heavely on GPU for graphics rendering. When someone is talking about 'the rendering power' of a CPU/GPU he means the processor's ability to make graphics related computations.
