The first generation of CAD and CAE software for PCs was designed to do all the calculations on the CPU. Graphics processing units (GPUs) were only for accelerating graphics displays. It would be years before NVIDIA and AMD added sophisticated parallel processing hardware, at first in support of new video games. It didn’t take long for CAD/CAE software developers to realize there were new capabilities in GPUs that they could use.
