    They need speedups somewhere else now that they're going full javascript.

    Yup, the sorts I've seen were 5-10x faster than the cpu, but they were also wasting a lot of the gpu power (and so watts) due to not being fully parallelizable.

    I wouldn't go through the trouble for a speed increase that low, but it might make sense for someone else.

    Luckily, things don't have to be FULLY parallelizable for GPUs to bring significant speedups

    Even if something is mostly parallelizable (and many algorithms are), it can still make sense to use all that GPU power.
