Does IPP make use of the GPU for H.264 decompression?

I'm developing an application to decode H.264 video, can anybody tell me if the graphics card is used in any way to decompress the video?

To clarify, I don't mean for displaying the video, just the decompression offrames from H.264 to RGB or YUV.

I'm just trying to determine whether a faster graphics card could aid the decompression process.

Thanks in advance.

The IPP library does not take advantage of any GPUs, only the CPU and SIMD (SSE) instructions. Video solutions based on the IPP library are pure software solutions only.
