3D News, GL, DirectX Graphics hardware has grown from a simple display controller to a full fledged specialized processing unit, in the last 10 years. The amount of included memory has increased from a mere few Kilobytes to hundreds of Megabytes. But what other uses can be found for your videocard when you're not playing a game or using the latest CAD package?

this is very promising, especially using the video RAM as swap can be used right away. but what happens to that swap when you want to play a game?

still this is an exiting development. if beos was still alive and kicking, it would have made quick use of it because using multiple cpu's was really build-in, not only in the kernel but in the api too.
