Subject Re: Cassandra and GPU's...

Hi Tony,

Somebody will likely prove me wrong on this (and I'd love to see it), but
I'm skeptical that there is much intersection between the set of things a
GPU is good at and the set of things a database needs to do. As such, I
don't expect there'd be much performance gain unless a way to exploit the
massive parallelism of the GPU effectively can be found.

Of course, GPU-driven analytics on the contents of the database opens up
all kinds of possibilities given the right kind of data...
