GPU can crack your passwords

While I understand the GPU is nothing more than a CPU doing video tasks, it seems there's more to it. According to the article once a GPU hacking/cracking pgm. gets loaded it can more easily uncover a password than the CPU could.
I just didn't know the GPU could be tasked for direct non-video tasks. It makes sense, though when you think about it.
