    After posting I did some more reading round the forums and found this thread
    which raises some very interesting questions about the reliability and error rates on GPUs. I don't think for the moment I'd use the GPU for anything like compressing harddrive images, of course a few errors in a video compression probably won't mater but when the integrity of the data is more important than the speed of compression I'll stick with my CPUs and ECC registered RAM.
    I wouldn't know about the license state of such a tool. Hopefully it's along the lines of a gcc toolchain.
