Because Its Hard To Display Graphics Using Your Graphics Card When It Is Busy Processing Data.

No, its not the same thing. The CPU app has a graphics application available, the GPU app does not. There is one in the works, but there is a technical problem of making the GPU both process data and display graphics on the very workunit it is working on.
