While converting a DVB-T stream with devede into a DVD iso image, I realized that powertop-2.2 shows that the GPU is heavily used. Therefore my question.

Well use of the GPU is dependent upon the software. They are designed for large repeated vector functions which is exactly what format conversion is so it makes sense that they might be harnessed for that task.
