Using a Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) for forensics analysis attempts to make use of the significant, parallel processing power available on these high cards for a different purpose than their original intent. The idea of forensic analysis on a GPU was first proposed by Marziale, Richard and Roussev in 2007 with a version of Scalpel that utilized a GPU.
