That is a really good idea and luke had mentioned it multiple times in
the past but keep in mind that gpus are an extreme patent minefield

compression on their gpus. But maybe someone should propose this to
sifive or the risc v foundation. Something like a Berkeley sponsored
program would be really interesting.
