How *did* GPUs work? This isn't a hypothetical question, I want an answer!

I know modern GPUs are packed full of compute units each processing multiple datums, all guided by a handful of control units. Upon which we run The Depth Buffering Algorithm or more frequently Recursive Ray Tracing.

I know arcadegames like Asteroids had a control unit including a callstack leaving most of the rendering up to the CRT output.

I know some constraints early systems had.

But what are the algorithms?
