It is disappointing to see the limitation being put by Nvidia on low cost GPU usage on data centers. 

We thought of providing an option in glusterfs by which we can control if we want to use GPU or not. 
So, the concern of gluster eating out GPU's which could be used by others can be addressed.

Nvidia banned only the lower cost, home user versions of their GPU line from datacenters.
