As i know is the way for GPU rendering about using pixel and vertex 
shaders and T&L for calculations. For that are specs available and 
smallest is 1.0 and comes out with the Geforce256.

I heard about a project that uses this tech for sound processing to use 
the GPU as DSP (Digital Sound Prcessor).
