Using the GPU to supplement the CPU during Flow Simulation?

I am curious if you can somehow unlock the GPU to share the processing workload with the CPU, similar to this application:

I currently run my flow sims with an Intel i7-2600K @ 3.40GHz (quad-core with hyperthreading, for a total of 8 cores), and was curious if I can unlock the potential of my ATI FirePro V4800 to speed up the calculations.

 

Assuming this is possible, could I then Crossfire two V4800's to really ramp things up?

 

Thank you for any insight, I've found nothing online so far!
