    Saw this on Hackaday, these guys are amazing. I love the slowed-down part of the video..

    Woooooooow - this is why I love watching Mythbusters. The creativity in the content and experiments and awesome character of both presenters is extremely entertaining!

    Well the demonstration was clear enough. the "CPU" did all the things by itself but slow. the huge "GPU" did a specific thing but incredible fast!

    I think what is best illustrated here is that the CPU equivalent is mobile while the GPU equivalent needs its own hangar ship to be transported.
    And the CPU equiv is dynamic while the GPU is sheer brute force.

    He he. But yes a very nice demo of pipelines :)

    ... Discovery Channel chickened out. ;)

    Shame they can't do some BBC specials with all the myths Discovery Channel/US TV is too lame to be able to do.

    Death would occur instantly, and you would be plastered with the Mona Lisa. Ouch.
