    It means that Java applications can use those CUDA Cores/Stream processors to do some math on the graphics card instead of CPU. And because graphics card are a little bit (ok, a lot) quicker at some math, it is a good thing to have if you do lots of math in your application.

    For you as a normal guy ? Absolutely nothing.
