Acceleration meter

Hardware device or software program designed to improve the overall performance of the computer. For example, a 3D graphics accelerator has its own processor GPU (graphics processing unit) and RAM, allowing it to perform tasks that would otherwise burden other computer components. Another good example is a download accelerator, which can be installed to help improve download speeds.
