Actually, the reason I keep bringing this up is I know someone working on this very problem. As it turns out, he gave up on the graphics card version to use a different type of processor, but he's still working on it last I heard.

The really odd thing is that a lot of people crunching Prime95 probably have this awesome potential number crunching processor sitting less than two feet away from them and have no idea of it's potential.

I wonder what Steve Jobs will think of the new use for the device if the program ever goes public? The chip developers simply wanted to be able to process video quickly and at low power, but it turns out what they did is also good for performing LLR tests.

Now words are cheap,
Indeed, often free.
Claims aplenty,
That we can agree.

Proof is missing,
There is none to see.
Give me results,
Else don't disturb me.

Yes I welcome artistic contributions (hence my occasional music posts).
