For great compression, it's rather hard to get that to work.
With a lot of RAM some clever guys manage.
GPU has a lot of stream processors, yet little RAM a stream processor.
Additionally they all have to execute the same code at a bunch of
SP's at the same time.
So there is a big need for some real clever new algorithm there,
as the lack of RAM is gonna hurt really bigtime.
Would be a mighty interesting study to get something to work there.
It allows real
complicated mathematical functions for PPM functionality.
What's in that GPU soon will be in a CPU anyway, so it benefits the
entire planet a thing like that.
Where can i ask for funding?
