In 1999, NVIDIA coined the term "GPU" as an acronym for Graphics Processing Unit, although the term had been in use for at least a decade before the arrival of the GeForce 256. Meaning, the GPU was actually invented years before NVIDIA launched its proprietary ones.

IBM created and introduced the Monochrome Display Adapter (MDA) in 1981. MDA cards had a monochrome text mode to allow high-resolution text and symbol display at 80 x 25 characters, useful for drawing forms.
