What Is GPU cache?

A new folder appeared in my Quicken file 6/29/2021. I have used Quicken for at least 10 years & never saw this before. I have Windows 10. I just want to know what data is being cached & by whom. Thanks

    The GPU cache is where Quicken stores splash screen notices like upcoming server maintenance notices you see occasionally and other notices. The folder generation dates back at least a year. You can safely delete this folder, but it will reappear when Quicken receives a server side prompt to display a given message to the user.

    GPUCache is not specific to Quicken. If you Google it, you'll find that other applications create it also.
    It will appear wherever Quicken starts up. To have GPUCache be created elsewhere, start Quicken elsewhere. Here is the startup for my own Quicken shortcut; out of sight, out of mind.

    Quicken user since version 2 for DOS, now using QWin Premier Subscription (US) on Win10 Pro.
