I have some questiones about how a gpu works... Is a gpu core doing tasks while idle? What about when windows starts ups? If the core or the socket where dameged would it affect your preformce while idle? Or would only affect high rendering applications like games? Would the Computer even turn on?

The GPU processes graphics data only. If it fails there is the possibility that nothing will be displayed, that a default VGA display might be passed through or maybe that the system will shut down.

Hope this helps
