    Hi

    yes,

    Spoiler

    Note: The disable CPU function can also be extended onto the EVGA Control Panel (ECP)

    Note: you may need to invest in workstation class graphic card to get the best from the softwares

    atb (all the best)

    If the software doesn't support it you can't do anything to force it. There are a few OpenCL based renderers out there but there aren't many.
    If you're talking about using the GPU for viewports, then the only option is a FirePro/Quadro card, since the viewports are OpenGL based.
