That is typically a feature only found in the more expensive "workstation" versions of video cards: nVidia's Quadro and ATI/AMD's FireGL.

"Regular" video cards are optimized much more generally for games, not specific programs.

it depends specifically on the specific software.

you should google each software product and see what kind of GPU acceleration they are taking advantage of.

just put in the specific software product and "gpu acceleration" and you should find some articles giving advice
