 Faster 3D Game Graphics by Not Drawing What Is Not Seen
The increasing demands of 3D game realism - in terms of both scene complexity and speed of animation - are placing excessive strain on the current low-level, computationally expensive graphics drawing operations.
To offset these demands and dramatically reduce the load on the graphics subsystem, we present a system that quickly and efficiently finds a large portion of the game world that is not visible to the viewer for each frame of animation, and simply prevents it from being sent to the graphics system.
This explains why we call this a conservative visibility algorithm: polygons that are sent to the graphics subsystem may still be invisible to the viewer since they could be behind other polygons (for example, another room or the rest of a building behind a wall).

 Epinions.com - 3D Graphics Cards: The Essentials
Not only is the graphics card the final step in the "pipeline", but it's also the quickest; you can wait ten seconds for a web page to download, but then it only takes a few milliseconds for the graphics card to do its part and draw the image to the screen.
The difference is, in the 2nd scenario your CPU is being pushed to the max by having to calculate the geometry and AI (artificial intelligence), among other things, and in the 1st case your CPU isn't being strained at all.
As far as RAM is concerned, 3D graphics are different than 2D primarily because 3D textures (the bitmaps that are applied to 3D objects to make them appear realistic) as well as the frame buffer (the actual screen image where frames are stored before being sent to the screen) must be stored in RAM.

  3D computer graphics at AllExperts
3D computer graphics are different from 2D computer graphics in that a three-dimensional representation of geometric data is stored in the computer for the purposes of performing calculations and rendering 2D images.
In general, the art of 3D modeling, which prepares geometric data for 3D computer graphics is akin to sculpting or photography, while the art of 2D graphics is analogous to painting.
3D graphics have become so popular, particularly in computer games, that specialized APIs (application programmer interfaces) have been created to ease the processes in all stages of computer graphics generation.

 Microsoft and 3D Graphics
3D graphics capability is a prerequisite for two major markets: Computer-aided industrial and mechanical design (for which the majority of workstations and high-end PCs are sold today) and entertainment (especially computer games, which are driving significant new PC hardware and software purchases by consumers).
For example, a 3D graphics API might include functions that draw objects, simulate the effects of lights, and determine which objects are visible from a given point of view.
The design of a 3D graphics API determines what can be drawn, how quickly it can be drawn, and how easy it is for a software developer to achieve a desired effect.

 Howstuffworks "How 3-D Graphics Work"
Since the early days of personal computers, most graphics boards have been translators, taking the fully developed image created by the computer's CPU and translating it into the electrical impulses required to drive the computer's monitor.
The most common graphics co-processors in the current generation of graphics display boards, however, take the task of rendering away from the CPU after the wireframe has been created and transformed into a 2-D set of polygons.
This is an important step, but graphics processors on the cutting edge of technology are designed to relieve the CPU at even earlier points in the process.

 Dr. Dobb's | Mobile Java & 3D Applications | August 4, 2005
The two 3D APIs on Sony Ericsson mobile phones are HI Corporation's Mascot Capsule Micro3D Version 3, and Java Specification Request (JSR) 184, which describes the Mobile 3D Graphics (M3G) API for the Java 2 Mobile Edition (J2ME).
A side effect of this is that 3D programmers must pass all coordinate data and API arguments to Mascot Capsule V3 as integers within the range of 0 (equivalent to 0.0) and 4096 (equivalent to 1.0).
This means that graphics commands are fed into a queue leading to the rendering engine where they are executed.
