Back-Testing-Engine can use graphic card calculation ressources

I suggest that for all complex calculations (in my case backtesting, but not limited to this task) it should be possible to use the graphic cards to accelerate the calculations. This has became quite common, e.g. http://images.nvidia.com/content/tesla/pdf/Apps-Catalog-March-2016.pdf

Since data volumes and requirements increase due to tick granularity in our algorithms and DOM-information in our strategies we could heavily increase backtesting speed.

I am aware that this is only relevant to MC versions which run on regular computers. I understand that VPS and dedicated servers do not have relevant hardware ressource available - but I think system development and backtesting takes place on "normal" computers, maybe with several monitors and hence a better graphic card.
