Sort of like a shotgun that shoots classical art.
So...what Myth were they busting?
I believe they were paid by nVidia to demonstrate the difference between CPU and GPU rendering, albeit in a way that's in no way applicable.
It's worth remembering that prior to the show, they were best known for building kill-machines that were judged too deadly for Battlebots pit fights.
one hit wonder

I was nonplussed until the slow-mo replay, at which point I became decidedly animated.
Goethe and ernie
It's a myth that actually knowing what "nonplussed" means and using it in that context in the first place makes you a huge virgin.
No, seriously. For real. Honestly.
these guys have the coolest job ever
Every time I see a massive amount of technology used for a completely frivolous purpose, it warms my heart.
Would have been nice for the first canon to actually paint that rather than a one-shot blast.
That was the point of the demonstration.
I love the Mythbusters. I wish the person who edited this would have let them explain what GPU stands for though. But since that probably would have doubled the time of the clip, I'm OK without it too.
CPU = central processing unit
GPU = graphics processing unit
A GPU is just a processor that's optimized for graphics stuff. It's what drives your graphics card.
+25 for the slo-mo segment
So when I'm playing TF2, my computer is shooting millions of little paintballs at the inside of my monitor?
Technology is truly amazing!

I'm going to be the douchebag here and say.. wtf
1. this in no way accurately depics CPU rendering versus GPU
2. since when is software rendering even a competitor? wouldn't it make more sense to market against ATI?
IF I HAD THAT AND MY SHOT MY BUDDY DANNY I BET THAT FUCKER WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO WIPE, THEN WE'D SEE WHO'D WIN NORMANDY YOU SON OF A BITCH.
they do live shows.
I'd almost look forward to that, since they are quite capable of building insanely dangerous death machines. They are 2 failed careers and 3 drug habits away from arranging rhinoceros vs BattleBot pit fights.
Now *that's* art.
