This was confirmed by General Manager of CUDA Sanford Russell at our last meeting and how Cisco isn't the only one in the network pack who is looking into it. We will be following the development in this area but overall it would be interesting to see Fermi with 512 cores running on a web server and serving thousands of people with small time slices should not be a problem for GPU. Until that happens we are stuck with quad cores and six cores to do the job.
