I believe it is nVidia only - it "harnesses" the power of the CUDA core processors. I could be wrong - sorry if I am not!

Whenever I render a video file of AVCHD footage in Vegas Pro 12 to a DVD Architect-friendly file or an MP4 file using GPU Acceleration with my NVidia GeForce GTX980, the video will stop rendering at some point in the video, at a black screen.  There's nothing wrong with my card, it's brand new.  In fact Vegas used to do this with my old card as well, a GTX280.  Does anyone know if I need any special settings or something in order to make GPU acceleration work properly?
