What are some scenarios when terminal emulators that use GPUs are beneficial? When rendering a huge output while the terminal window is in the foreground? That sounds too rare of a situation to account for the hype.

they can be used for cracking password hashes as far as I know

@gsteenss I meant GPU-powered virtual terminal applications in particular, apologies if that wasn’t clear.

I’m aware of other applications for GPUs that don’t have to with graphics rendering, but I doubt the terminal applications are doing backpropagation or cryptography.

@melentye
They're not particularly useful yet, but they're pretty darn cool
