Mobile terms glossary
The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a specialized circuit designed to accelerate the image output in a frame buffer intended for output to a display.
GPUs are very efficient at manipulating computer graphics and are generally more effective than general-purpose CPUs for algorithms where processing of large blocks of data is done in parallel.
Modern smartphones are equipped with advanced embedded chipsets that can do many different tasks depending on their programming. GPUs are an essential part of those chipsets and as mobile games are pushing the boundaries of their capabilities, the GPU performance is becoming increasingly important.
Bluetooth is an industry standard for contactless data transmission and communication between two devices. The range is usually 1 to 10 m and rarely more than 100 m. In some cases, distances of up to 200 m are possible.
Wi-Fi - A type of network that makes use of radio channels to connect either to a local area network (LAN) or a router linked to the Internet.
Companies often have a Wi-Fi system installed inside their buildings. Then visitors and workers with laptops can instantly connect to their LAN.
There are also publicly available Wi-Fi links to the Internet. These are called Hot-Spots and may be found in airports, train stations and some cafes.
Wi-Fi does include built-in methods of making a network secure, for example turning on WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) or WEP will only allow authorised users to connect but many people do not bother to switch these methods on, with the result that anyone nearby can connect and access their network.
