      Here are the two preference panels.

      Grrrrrr ....

       

      (And never mind that the UI is glaringly different between the two flagship apps.)

      I know, the INDD specs don't list my MacBook Air as being supported, but dang it, it's good enough for AI!

          It took Illustrator a couple years to finalize the support for GPU beginning in 2014.

           

          InDesign just began the process in 2016. It takes engineering time to work through the issues involved. The engineers decided to start with Mac computers with Retina Displays, but presumably will expand to all devices, Mac and Windows with minimum GPU abilities.
