CAD type programs take video card hardware into account to speed up
the calculations considerabley. The GPU is very powerful and fast,
when it comes to graphic calculations. But in the end, those
calculations could also be done with your normal CPU and software -
although somewhat slower.

Yes, but some more advanced features you would need to implement
yourself. Agg-Pas has many of those advanced calculations implemented,
so you can always take a look at than. I recommend you run some of the
Agg-Pas demos, they are very impressive! Most graphics functions rely
heavily on advanced maths & formulas, so it takes somebody special to
actually understand the underlying formulas. Those things are normally
to advanced for me to understand. :-)
