This probably would be difficult to work in with st, since Xlib is pretty set in its ways vis-a-vis the backend & that's where I imagine the GPU slowdown is coming from. However, I do think it could be an interesting project to kind of de-create CUDA; a sort of OpenCL/Vulkan based funtion delegator. Probably wouldn't work with Suckless though.
