  1. Vertex and fragment shaders give programmers a lot of power over the GPU.
  2. However, some elements of most GPUs have transistors dedicated to them. Check
  3. the elements in the pipeline that are hardwired and not currently programmable,
  4. at least not to any great extent. What's available hardwired on the GPU? The
  5. illumination model, vertex transformation, Z-buffer evaluation, image
  6. processing, such as color correction or edge detection, rasterization and
  7. interpolation, clipping. All the hardwired elements don't necessarily have to
  8. be used by the programmer. You should check off those capabilities that are
  9. available.
