I would suppose, if by trend you mean testing, development and the such, then using it to compute Asynchronous Cryptography would be a start, having 2 CPU's encrypt/decrypt a string within nanoseconds of each other.

Other than that I'm not too sure.

The recent trend in multicore cpus on a single chip are a form of parallel processing.  Clock speeds ran into physical limitations, so the other way to increase computation power is to put more cpus in a chip.  Quad cores are commonplace, and eight cores are probably just around the corner.

I vote for usage of VideoCards for that. Check out nVidia CUDA and AMD Stream technologies.
Personally, my own program was able to reach 1.8 teraflop on 4x9800GX2 system :-)
