GpuInformation is reported as part of analytics for the system. For more information on system analytics, see Analytics.

More than one GPU can potentially exist in a multi-adapter configuration, although this depends on the client host system and its driver model. GPU information from Analytics is reported as a read-only generic collection property, GpuCollection. Each item in the collection is a GpuInformation instance. Unless reporting for a multi-adapter system, the relevant GPU information is the first and only item in the collection.

The collection is empty if no GPU exists.
