What led to the transition from CPU-centric computing to very heavily GPU-centric starting in the 2010s? Is there a necessity for CPU computing whatsoever aside from the sheer standardized nature of CPU architectures? The advent of GPGPU computing might have one believe that the usefulness of CPUs are limited to very few tasks - and that's only due to the inability of programmers to fully utilize GPU architectures. Am I missing something? What even is the point of a CPU anymore?
