I have come across one recent website on this topic that might provide some
useful information on this topic; the General-Purpose Computation Using
Graphics Hardware website:  http://www.gpgpu.org/

There is also a research paper on the topic available in PDF form, entitled
"Using Modern Graphics Architectures for General-Purpose Computing: A
Framework and Analysis" by 
Thompson, Hahn, and Oskin:

I have not personally had enough time to investigate this any further, but
it would be a welcomed contribution if someone wanted to research this a bit
more and determine if there is any applicability to tasks such as RC5.
