Grrrr .. I started reading it, then got the horrible double underlining ads, which I understand were from Intellitext, now from Vibrant Media .. not that the name change makes any difference, still really annoying.
I'll have to copy and paste it into Notepad.

Hmm, sorry but this looks more like a classic piece of unverified snake oil being thrown out to scare the nervous. Especially as it originates from a company with a vested interest in selling brute force password cracking s/w. Read the comments from 'Hans' and others on the news 'source' :-

It's long been known that if you want a lot of parallel processors that run horrendously quickly - but with little memory usage then the DSP in a graphics card is ideal.
