GPU Rendering — Blender Manual (docs.blender.org)
GPU rendering makes it possible to use your graphics card for rendering, instead of the CPU. This can speed up rendering because modern GPUs are designed to do quite a lot of number crunching. On the other hand, they also have some limitations in rendering complex scenes, due to more limited memory, and issues with interactivity when using the same graphics card for display and rendering.

A concept of "statistical distance" is defined between different preparations of the same quantum system, or in other words, between different rays in the same Hilbert space. Statistical distance is determined entirely by the size of statistical fluctuations occurring in measurements designed to distinguish one state from another. It is not related, a priori, to the usual distance (or angle) between rays. One finds, however, that these two kinds ...

CMEs travel outward from the Sun at speeds ranging from slower than 250 kilometers per second (km/s) to as fast as near 3000 km/s. The fastest Eart...

GPU Rendering — Blender Manual (docs.blender.org)
GPU rendering makes it possible to use your graphics card for rendering, instead of the CPU. This can speed up rendering because modern GPUs are designed to do quite a lot of number crunching. On the other hand, they also have some limitations in rendering complex scenes, due to more limited memory, and issues with interactivity when using the same graphics card for display and rendering.
Huge issue: Community split between 2.7 and 2.8 (devtalk.blender.org)

If you’re smart enough, you’ve probably also noticed that the American one makes no sense and is just awful. A simple conclusion that many people draw out of this is that the European format is the best one, however I don’t think this is true. If you’re one of th...

A concept of "statistical distance" is defined between different preparations of the same quantum system, or in other words, between different rays in the same Hilbert space. Statistical distance is determined entirely by the size of statistical fluctuations occurring in measurements designed to distinguish one state from another. It is not related, a priori, to the usual distance (or angle) between rays. One finds, however, that these two kinds ...
