Although we use both the terms interchangeably, there is a slight difference between GPU and graphics card. GPU is a chip which is installed in the graphics card's board and it helps the graphics card in processing the pictures. Such GPUs which are installed in the graphics card are called integrated GPU. And sometimes these GPUs are also installed separately, they have their own board, in this case they are called dedicated or discrete GPU.
