Add "GPU processing support as/when suitable" to this.


e.g. Use the GPU (CUDA) to assist with rendering and FEA.


Can't imagine you would want to use the GPU to aid with calculations during normal modelling for fear of nuking frame-rate, but, saying that, those with multiple GPUs or Telsa cards might be able to benefit (if multi-core is already supported).

This is definitely one of those "start from scratch" ideas.  Using tesla cards/cuda processors is still viable.  Some people have already found success with one powerful workstation card for graphics and a second affordable card for physics in the gaming world.
