I think they're just comparing the difference between the CPU and GPU in terms of graphical performance.

Basically, the graphics card processes the graphical data all at once. Lots of processes going on at once - hence parallel - running along side each other.

The CPU, however runs each process individually - so this adversely affects the visual experience.
