Putting that unused GPU back to work
I just got a new graphics card for my computer, but my motherboard also has an onboard GPU. Once I install my new card the onboard GPU won't be doing anything any more. Is there any way to take advantage of it and put it back to work? The GPU wouldn't even necessarily need to be doing graphics. There are a whole bunch of applications that could take advantage of the high floating point calculation throughput of GPUs.
Anyways, is there currently any way to do this? If not does anyone know if there is a reason why?
