    GPU compression

    Do you think that if GPU compressors become more useful that it will change things drastically to where people who use computers and server systems without a specific GPU will not be able to use them?

    Or will they have to emulate the hardware which might still work, but defeats the purpose of using the GPU?

    Will they be locked out of compression or the ability to decompress things done with a specific GPU or other hardware if they do not have the equivalent hardware to match it in the future?

    After seeing TensorFlow, I wondered about this.

    I doubt it, at least for decompression. IIRC, there are already specialized chips for AI. They are probably faster and more efficient than GPU. Anyway old CPUs can do anything just much slower.
