Well, a quick google for "are graphics cards turing complete?"
suggests that some nVidia cards are Turing complete, but I couldnt
find any reliable source (eg nvidia.com) to confirm this, and I dont
know enough either to figure it out for myself, or even to confirm
that this is both a necessary and sufficient condition for running

Related question: assuming temporarily that it is possible
theoretically to get Haskell to run on a graphics card, to what extent
would this actually be useful?
