I am using optiSLang Plug-in in Ansys for sensitivity analysis and optimization purposes, I know that also Ansys have the Response Surface Optimization option but still I have many parameters (7 Parameters) as inputs and 10 output parameters, it generates about 80 DP (Design Points), I want to accelerate the process and use my GPU power with the CPU, is that possible? if yes, How?

My Laptop Specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700HQ 2.6GHz 4 Cores (can goes up to 3.2GHz)
GPU: Nvidia GTX 970m 3GB VRAM

This link is to a PDF file that shows GPU cards that are supported for accelerating computation.

The GTX 970m is not on the list.  In general, no gaming cards will be on the list.  The GPUs on the list cost around $5,000.

GPUs to accelerate computation are separate from Graphics Cards that use a GPU for the display, those cards are on this list.
