I see articles and statements from 2012 - 2014 that GPU support is coming.
I also see that model.dll is being called in the application I am performance analyzing and I belive it is doing image processing on the WMS pyramid. The machine has no GPUs.
Has GPU support for model.dll image processing/raster filters/spatial filter arrived yet?

From my understanding, IMAGINE implemented the GPU enabled spatial modeler operator "convolution filter" in IMAGINE 2013, so if user use this operator in WPS geoprocess, then GPU will be used.
In most cases, the bottleneck is the I/O, not the CPU.

from what I can tell when building the response image for Web Map Services GPUs are not used. The software is highly efficent at chipping raster image data, but vector data is rendered without GPUs. I can not find any documentation that Apollo supports GPUs. That said when model.dll is used to process a ERDAS model on raster data GPUs may be used based on a previous response for some filters. I'm working on finding this documentation.
