GPU influence on Team Render

I'm fairly new to C4D so apologies if this is too basic a question. I was wondering if rendering was done all via CPU, or if the GPU was also a factor.
I have two boxes at the moment and both were running a GTX 740. However, I just upgraded my primary workstation to a GTX 780 Ti and the speed per frame when I render in the picture viewer (this box only rather than a Team render) is about the same as it was before the upgrade. That led me to wonder if the rendering performance was independent of the GPU.
If that's case, it means I can use boxes for a render farm that focus on memory and CPU without having to stick high end video cards in them. Would appreciate any insights you might offer.
