If you need to ask me about the above then you obliviously do not know much about the OS or use it fully.
Well then it is fortuitous for the both of us I don't need to ask... but thanks for the laugh you gave me with your erroneous assumption.

Alright people keep it civil! No flaming each other!

I'll be waiting to see just what they bring out in IE 9. What don't seem to realize is hidden potentials in vpu powerr yet to unlocked. People run out and buy all the fancy video cards but never see the full potential put to use. Of course this also helps advertisers on graphics as well as you watching your favorites at Youtube and other multimedia online.

The processing power potential should pages load up much faster when that is put into effect as well. To top things off you have HTML5 coming in which will have it's effects on Adobe Flash Player, MS Silverlight, APache Pivot, Java of course, and other things which call for cpu time now moved to the gpu once directed there.

However good IE9 is, it will collapse if the perception of IE doesn't change.

And that's 3 by yourself as well.

What's wrong with it using the GPU? The GPU has been shown to be much more efficient in numerous things, and new Nvidia cards have been developed as GPGPU cards, so I'm just wondering how differently IE will perform like this.

To really start to understand why vpu power has to be considered over the cpu you have to look at the increased intensity seen with graphics in web content as a rule as time progresses. Getting back on HTML5 for example following the IE Blog is another place to look as well as those.

Benefits of GPU-powered HTML5

At MIX 10 we showed how we’re building on new Windows technologies like Direct2D, DirectWrite and XPS to enable Internet Explorer 9 to render all standards-based web content – text, images, video and SVG – using the power of the GPU.

In this blog post we’ll review the major improvements for web developers and users that come from building on these Windows technologies. For more detailed information on Direct2D technologies, see this excellent PDC2008 talk.

Performance, performance, performance

The benefit of building on Direct2D technologies is that the browser makes the most of the underlying PC hardware that is optimized for rendering rich graphics. This results in faster web applications and a higher quality browsing experience for users and web developers.

As IE9 does more work using the GPU, there is less CPU load, enabling other browser subsystems to do more, as well as enabling higher frame rates for smooth animation and video playback.

The GPU is a much better choice for some graphical operations – for example, the GPU executes alpha blending and bilinear image scaling much faster than the CPU, and uses pixel shaders to perform complex per pixel calculations.

Super-fast zoomed browsing

IE9 uses the GPU to scale images and other content, making zoomed browsing very fast – this is what makes the map zooming demo on ietestdrive.com so fast.

Windows is still the only broadly used operating system that allows the users to change the size of all UI elements on the screen to improve readability and legibility on new high DPI displays on laptops and desktop computers. IE9 builds on the work done in Internet Explorer 8 (the first browser to zoom Web page content by default) to ensure that users can easily read the Web on high DPI displays.

Hardware accelerated HTML5 video using Windows Media Foundation

IE9 makes the most of your graphics hardware by using the Windows Media Foundation system to play HTML5 video, using the CPU or the hardware video decoder if available.

The reduction in CPU usage on machines with hardware video decoders greatly improves battery life – for example, in our MIX demo we played two 720p HD videos, using barely 30% CPU on a $400 netbook. (versus 100% CPU usage in other browsers, playing only one HD video while dropping frames.)

with more seen at: IEBlog

Actually one part out of all of that sums up what you need to know to see why utilizing the vpu makes far more sense then simply staying with the cpu driven standards.

Do we remain in the Stone Ages or progress forward?(in pc terms that is) The other part I could point to abiout IE 9 starting to utilize the graphics capabilities is this.

When seeing your present browser run into slow downs while loading pages with a lot of graphics, photos, etc. on the page what happens? People complain: "hey why is .... running so darn slow when I go to...". Why not take advantage of the specific processor intended for graphics?
