"which is already implanted in Photoshop"

As of four months ago, only Photoshop's Oil Paint Filter used Metal: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/-use-native-operating-system-gpu-acceleration... 

Has there been any more recent announcement about more parts of Photoshop using Metal or DirectX 12?
