Does anyone think that PostgreSQL could benefit from using the video
card as a parallel computing device?  I'm working on a project using
Nvidia's CUDA with an 8800 series video card to handle non-graphical
algorithms.  I'm curious if anyone thinks that this technology could be
used to speed up a database?  If so which part of the database, and what
kind of parallel algorithms would be used?

There has been some interesting research on sorting using the GPU which could
be very interesting for databases.

Without knowing a thing about all of this, my first thought it might be useful for GIS and things of that sort.
