Topic Title: Does dragon utilise the GPU?
Topic Summary: After version 15 in Dragon, DNN's are used and run faster on GPU's. Is Dragon utilising this? If not why not.

Curious about how Dragon NaturallySpeaking work under the hood to utilise hardware. 

It was mentioned in another post that the speed of a single CPU is essential for the performance of Dragon, not multiple cores. And apparently not the GPU either. After version 15, SR in Dragon is based on deep learning algorithms, i.e. deep neural networks. They run significantly faster on GPU's because of GPU's parallelisation which makes all the matrix multiplications and tensor operations in deep learning much faster..

So the question is does Dragon take advantage of the GPU available on a PC.? I have a 4 GB Nvidia graphics card on my laptop but it does not seem like Dragon is using it. Why Not?
