Even if not super-efficient, the incredible flexibility could compensate for that - and candidates would be generated right on the GPU with no need to transfer them (except ones that made a correct guess). There would need to be some interface designed of course. Lots of caveats and design choices. And I'm not sure it would fly at all. magnum
