from System requirements section of PI website:
 GPU Acceleration
"As of writing this document (February 2014), the current versions 1.8.x of PixInsight don't make direct use of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). Hopefully this is going to change during 2015. We are working to implement GPU acceleration via CUDA programming on systems with NVIDIA graphics cards. "

Any word on the timeline to implement CUDA utilization?

My GTX 980 GPU has 2048 cores to do math calculations simultaneously.
Instead PI only uses my I7 CPU 6 cores.

"CUDA® is a parallel computing platform and programming model invented by NVIDIA. It enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU)."
...GPU computing is possible because today's GPU does much more than render graphics: It sizzles with a teraflop of floating point performance and crunches application tasks designed for anything from finance to medicine."
