It wasn’t such a long time ago that in order to play games at their best, you needed a high-end computer with a really expensive graphics card installed in order to play the latest games. But nowadays with the advances of technology, chip manufacturers can make CPUs and GPUs so small they can easily fit inside a mobile phone or tablet computer!
Thanks to the PowerVR graphics processing unit as well as a beefy CPU and an amount of RAM to complement such specifications, iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad can handle games with graphics capabilities that only a few years ago would never have been possible on mobile or handheld devices.
