Enable more tools to take advantage of computers with GPU. I have recently been preparing large rasters for uploading to AGOL and I typically do that by right clicking on the layer in ArcPro and select share as web layer and cache locally. The tool is clearly making use of the multiple cores of my computer but I have a modern RTX graphics card so it would be good if it took advantage of that hardware.

Reviewing the help page GPU processing with Spatial Analyst I was surprised to discover that only 3 tools in the vast spatial analyst toolbox seem capable of taking advantage of a GPU.

ArcPro stepped up to the challenge of using multiple cores; it seems the next logical move is to enable appropriate tools to take advantage of the GPU.
