Default Use processors and GPU for higher throughput?


I've been running PRPs on a few machines with Intel Core i7-6700 @ 3.40GHz processors. Recently, I've realized that each of these has a NVIDIA GeForce GT 730. I'm new to GPU computing (other than whatever Matlab does automatically), and I realize these aren't particularly good GPUs, but:

Could I get more overall throughput if I run Prime95 on several of the processor cores and one of the GPU Mersenne programs (maybe trial factoring)? Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance, and happy holidays!
