Processing data GPU and hardware to consider (application of thought to creativity)

hardware for processing your work can be a big handicap because of just how much processing power can be needed to finish analyses quickly...

in view of the fact that bitcoin mining is a gold rush there are some good calculation machines available and these can be used for generic processor intensive function and work)

in a sense because of all the time placed into making these especially for processing maths complex bitcoin transactions i would consider it worthwhile  to consider using them for honest work besides the dreams of Cray and IBM and sun that can and do provide economical smaller scale servers/mainframes.

the likes of cray and ibm however provide dedicated crypto processor units and i have seen some quite nicely designed processors that provide special crypto units for SSL processing and are infact most probably highly advantageous to mining coin or working out problems
