    I went looking for a GPU component, and images to define what is what. I personally either don't know the working parts or call them by the wrong name. So I have been putting this Map together for myself or any-one with the gpu learning disabilities aka calling things by the wrong name. Saying one thing meaning another, yea no genius would ever do that. Well please keep me informed what you think, what needs to be added or what I have wrong, so things can be explained with some accuracy.

    ok, but it's capacitors, not capasitors.

    yea spelling, it allways nails when your editing, doing both sucks. Well I guess that's good if spelling related issue. So is memory, never mind went to wiki for vram and dram, probally should add that too.
    Still have to 2x look into Mofset and Mosfet

    I wouldn't call it a Terminal (where the PCI-E connectors from the PSU plug in)... maybe plugs or power connectors?

    The terminology is wrong from the onset. It should be called GPU anatomy, video card construction, etc. "GPU Road Map" is usually what the evolution of a given vendor's GPU architecture is called. EG, Nvidia's Tesla, Fermi, Kepler, Maxwell, Volta roadmap.
    Law-II says thanks.
