Software versus Graphics Cards - can we make a list?

I'm often confused as to what GPU to use, if any, with particular photo editing software.

Would it be possible to make a list of good GPU's to consider for certain popular software programs, particularly the Adobe stuff?

I'm thinking along the lines of:

Photoshop - makes use of GPU acceleration - best with Nvidia x, y, and z

Premier Pro - makes use of GPU acceleration - best it AMD x, y, z

Something like that, where we can look at a spreadsheet and perhaps see that for THIS program you don't get any benefit from a GPU, but for THAT program you do, as long as you are using an Nvidia product, etc.

And of course particular GPU model recommendations for budget, average and top end.

Here's an example.  I'm using Lightroom Classic 11.4, and Premier Pro 2022.   If I build a new PC and want a mid-range GPU solution, what are my best options?
