Comment 18 by Schrodinger's Cat :

Hmm. If I took the motherboard out of my computer, hit it with a hammer, and observed that some aspects of the computer then stop working, I think it would be stretching it a bit to then proclaim that I'd found the basis of those functions.

A more accurate analogy would be to remove the graphics card and then observe that you lose hardware 3D rendering capability. You could then conclude that the graphics card is the basis for hardware 3D graphics rendering.
