Question: What is the viability of using a GPU for plugin processing? Could it be similar to using a dedicated DSP unit?

    Latency to/from the GPU isn't ideal, so you'd need a ton of cooperation of both hosts and plug-ins to make it work, but it's sort of moot because CPUs have plenty of power.

    Also, moving data in GPU is easy, getting data out from GPU not so easy

    Yeah, you'd need to keep it in the GPU as much as possible, copying back/forth would be bad.

    GPU direct storage will change the equation then?
