Right now it doesn't.

Dell 5750 Inspiron with 12gb mem

AMD A8-7410 APU with AMD Radeon R5 Graphics × 4

 

Currently using driver AMD64 microcode 2.20160316.1 for CPU Is there a separate driver for the GPU that I need?

To get it to also run GPU

To get it to also run GPU work under Linux you have to install a driver with OpenCL support and make sure Boinc sees it.
Unfortunately I can't help you with the how as I only have limited experience with Linux, there are others around here that should be able to help you if you still want it.
