Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a CPU and a GPU? And why you should consider using the GPU for complex calculations?

Well the guys at NVidia wanted to find a good way of explaining that and they asked Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage to help out.

Jamie and Adam are special effects experts who became famous in the US for their Mythbusters show (if you have never seen it… try to do so, it is hilarious and available on the Discovery Channel in the UK!!!).

Since they are big fans of things that shoot and blast… you can imagine that the result is nothing short of amazing! Unfortunately there is no embed option on the NVidia site so you need to go there to see the video, but you can get HD versions (which I highly recommend).

So, don’t waste any time and go watching it… you will not regret investing the 10 minutes :)
