You usually don't associate Gaming with Music Video Production, but sometimes those words are definitely used in the same sentence. This is absolutely the case in modern times when considering hardware. I'm speaking specifically of video cards - gaming video cards.
In case you're not familiar with what video cards are, consider this quote from Wikipedia that explains everything: A video card is an expansion card which generates a feed of output images to a display device. Frequently, these are advertised as discrete or dedicated graphics cards, emphasizing the distinction between these and integrated graphics.
So, in other words - video cards are what display the graphics. The most important aspect of this in terms of how music videos are made are when you hear people refer to GPU. GPU stands for graphics processing unit. GPUs are also referred to as video cards. Computers that music videos are edited on (as well as the ones that are used to create the album covers) use the GPU to render images, video and animations. And GAMING video cards are the most powerful on the market. Although their power is meant to render high end graphics in a way to make playing games possible, that same power is harnessed to make music videos. The more powerful the GPU, the more a video creator can do (and yes, that rhymed Johnnie Cochran style).
These days it is ultra important both logistically and budget-wise to be able to shoot music videos in multiple locations while incorporating multiple sources, with multiple tracks of video and audio. Especially now that it is not easy (nor safe for obvious 2020 reasons) for talent to fly in. Powerful video cards allow all this to be incorporated without crashing the computers, and most importantly do quick renders - meaning the videos can get done faster.
Take this video, for example. “Take Me Alive” has multiple scenes going on, created by different camera crews, from different sources, and different locations, and different times. And needed to be edited and released quickly enough to time with the album release. High end video cards from Rakuten at https://www.rakuten.com/shop/category/133/ made this possible.
The VR360 version of the music video (ABOVE) for “World Keeps Turning” had its own challenges that could only be accomplished using a gaming video card. Only a super powered video card could handle rendering the Animation PLUS stitching every together to make it VR in 360 degrees. There is also a 3D sbs version of this same video, and both were able to be released on the same day because of fast render times available to machines with gaming video cards.
