    The following are a given:

    • Gaming
    • Rendering/3D modeling
    • BOINC/Folding
    • Data mining/Bitcoin mining
    • Quantitative research
    • Finding Pi to the asdjfhlaskdfh-illionth number

    So what else?

    CUDA accelerated Vray rendering, two words: absolutely amazing.

    make boob animation even more realistic.

    What do you mean, "how do you do that"?

    It's built into Vray, you just use your GPU to render complex 3D scenes.

    You'll have to have a 3D suite like 3DS Max and then purchase Vray renderer (2.0) which acts as a plugin for 3DS Max and replaces the default Mental Ray.

    If you want to try CUDA accelerated rendering, there is a demo version of Octane render by otoy, it comes with couple of test scenes and supports path tracing for global illumination.

    ^ .... What's up with all the white pixels on the rendered image?

    That's image after few thousands iterations, path tracing is a convergence algorithm - it gets more accurate with more iterations. White pixels happen with very bright light sources - these white pixels will be covered with new pixels - just a limitation of an algorithm.

    We can simulate a lot of things using physics.
    Virtual reality could be possible
    The world would turn into the matrix and skynet takes over.

    A great many of the above lead to one of my favourite things a hot gpu can do
    Warm a room nicely

    I often think that in the future cpus and gpus could be the basis of our household heating neads, I mean my pcs like a smart ass 1kwatt heater, now in ten years why not use that heat and just all fold 24/7.
