CPU, then GPU, now PPU

My computer has a CPU, mind you these days so does my toaster, my watch, and my stereo, and all but basic computers come with a graphics processing unit. But now, there is a new weapon in the never ending fight to stuff more polygons on your screen, heaven forbid that games stop the massive increase in visual complexity or everyone might notice that they're all the same and have rubbish gameplay these days. Now the CPU can concentrate on adding numbers up, the GPU can concentrate on rendering splashes of blood as you run over innocent pedestrians and the PPU can concentrate on making things bounce, fall, or whatever.
