From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  graphics adaptor
  graphics adapter
  graphics card
  video adapter
  video card
      (Or "graphics adapter", "graphics card",
     "video adaptor", etc.) A circuit board fitted to a computer,
     especially an IBM PC, containing the necessary video
     memory and other electronics to provide a bitmap display.
     Adaptors vary in the resolution (number of pixels) and
     number of colours they can display, and in the refresh rate
     they support.  These parameters are also limited by the
     monitor to which the adaptor is connected.  A number of such
     display standards, e.g. SVGA, have become common and
     different software requires or supports different sets.
