Well, if you are talking about why we need such power then forgive me. I just presumed it was another troll coming in to stir up an argument.

Like your original post said, there are definitely apps which require it such as 3D modelling, Graphic design, number crunching. At the moment, you simply can't have fast enough.

The Quartz Extreme engine converts every object on your desktop into a texture just before it is sent to your graphics processor to be displayed on the screen. This way all of the effects can be handled with hardware acceleration, pixel shaders, T&L, all of that kind of stuff. That's why it requires you to at least have a Geforce2MX.
