GPUs or CPUs?

Question from a user on the code structure of the Invest models. Are they coded to use GPUs or just CPUs? I need this info to configure the PCs we are building for the GIS group in MDD.

    InVEST models are written to execute on the CPU, as the most significant bottleneck is the available disk bandwidth rather than computation.

    What's an MDD? But in general if anyone is picking out hardware to make InVEST run faster, pick the fastest SSD you can get! The worst would be an external platter hard drive connected by USB or a network drive..
