Is it possible to get MagickWand to be processed on the GPU instead of the CPU?
I'm currently using MagickWand to created animated Gifs on an iPad Air 2, but it eats up the CPU. Any other suggestions of ways I can reduce this overhead would be appreciated !
The MagickWand interface is a new high-level C API interface to ImageMagick core methods. We discourage the use of the core methods and encourage the use of this API instead. Post MagickWand questions, bug reports, and suggestions to this forum.

ImageMagick supports OpenCL. If enabled, it will try to run certain operations on the GPU such as resizing, convolving, blurring, etc. However, it does not accelerate reading or writing images. If you want ImageMagick to yield the CPU, you can add a throttle policy to the policy.xml configuration:
- <policy domain="resource" name="throttle" value="2"/>
