Yes, very limited, as possibilities.... Only the integrated GPUs of the 
latest generation Intel CPUs are supported. This is obviously useful 
with recent laptops equipped with Intel processors, but for desktops 
that often have an added GPU card; more powerful and offering support 
for more monitors, no support is possible.

To the extent that GPUs seem to give a lower rendering quality, it may 
not be a very big loss... But rendering the Timeline in real time for 
immediate and more fluid viewing of several layers of filters and 
effects would be useful and desirable if GPUs could be used more.
