To me, the database is one of the more interesting places to use GPUs.  Half a gigabyte of
very fast RAM and some high speed simple processors is a good place to put some critical data
that you want to search.  Because of the architecture of a typical GPU, it seems unlikely
that it's the best place to process complex threaded code, even if (say) the JVM could make
use of it.
