Your Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), or Graphics Card is a specialized processor dedicated to enhancing visual display functions on your PC. Generally speaking, it's used for processes common in modern games, such as:
However, GPUs have a wide variety of uses outside of running and developing games. In case you're interested, here's how Salad uses your GPU to make you money. Salad has a limited list of what GPUs can run on our system. Here's how to find yours.
First, open the Salad app and navigate to the Earn tab. Once you are here, select the Miner Details page and under "Machine Information" you can find a list of the GPUs within your machine.

Of course, it may look a bit different if you're on a different OS of Windows. Once you find the model number of your GPU you can look it up online. Typically the manufacturer has a page listing the technical specs of their specific hardware, and on this page you'll find your card's VRAM.
