I'm only interested on the multi-GPU stuff with Nvidia. Any GTX 550 on
sale seems perfect.

Once i saw a user trying to use some APU with JtR (for md5crypt-opencl,
sha51crypt-opencl and a few more opencl stuff). I got the feeling that
it (JtR) could do better. Of course, it could be cheap hardware running
on notebooks. Since then i have a desire to put my hands on one.

Some points to clarify:
- this hybrid HW seems to be important from now on. At least on
development coutries (i guess).
- since any CPU is ok (?), why not an APU?

So, APU is offlist.
