Offloading work on the graphics card is becoming more trendy. Take Nvidia's CUDA core tech. IT is a "parallel computing platform and programming model" that harnesses the full power of the GPU. GPU-acceleration of this type helps handle heavy math and processes that the CPU struggles to keep up with. (That was the original idea of the GPU right? To handle that difficult floating math in 3D games and software.) With the "CUDA" tech, the GPU looks like hundreds of individual core able to handle that work like Atlas!

Again, it is elegance over brute force. Use ever resource at your disposal, don't let it sit idle. It is great that LabView to getting up to speed, pioneering even.
