    that can be relevant when you process a lot of image data and/or vector/matrix calculations. thats where GPU's are for. pipelining and massively parallel computing for javascript seems a bit overloaded to me ;) i dont think there is any good reason to run javascript on the GPU because its much better to do that in non-interpreted languages like C/C++ or even assembler or shader code like cuda (especially for the GPU). dont stick on that its nonsense to use. maybe that is proof-of-concept only. hope this helps :)
