GPU processing question - compute cards vs graphics cards

I wanted to know if APP would be able to take advantage of compute cards such as the nVidia Tesla line, and if those would be better than a regular gaming type graphics card for use with APP.

The main reason I ask is the graphics cards in my rig are getting a bit on the older side, being a pair of AMD R9 390 video cards that I bought back in the summer of 2015.

We're not there yet, so I can't give details on different types of cards being an advantage or not to have. When APP has Vulkan support (which is still down the road) it will be able to use GPU's to calculate and that should be quite a bit faster. In the current landscape of graphics cards, I wouldn't spend top dollars on one just yet.
