The part of a video card that transfers pixel information. The amount of pixel pipelines a graphics card has can have a great impact on the speed of the image rendering. The more pixel pipelines, the faster the video card can process pixels. A card with eight pipelines can process twice as many pixels as a card of the same speed with four pipelines.
