How do GPU's favour compute over gaming and vice-versa?

You sometimes see that they say a certain GPU architecture is compute-focused vs. gaming focused. What sort of features make one more compute or gaming oriented?
Update: Like for example, what makes a Radeon Instinct a compute card, but a regular Radeon a gaming card? Or what makes a Geforce a gaming card, while the Tesla is a compute card?
