fatal error as in a fault with the computer or someone having an error in their code, which would have nothing to do with computer not being able to run it.

Just calculate extremely complex equations extremely fast.

well, a GPU just makes lots of calculations too

A GPU is a dedicated graphics microprocessor optimized for floating point calculations which are fundamental to 3D graphics rendering.
