Default RT Systems cables with CHIRP or Powerwerx software?

I have a more specific question submitted to Powerwerx but want to ask in a more general sense here:

Does anyone here use a RT Systems cable with non-RT Systems software (CHIRP, Powerwerx, VX Commander, etc.) to program your radios, or does RT Systems truly make their cables and software specific to each other? I thought I read somewhere that using a RT cable with CHIRP or other software was possible but have not been able to confirm this.

I already know that you cannot use a generic cable with RT software. My thought is that if the RT cable will work with the free software from Powerwerx for the TERA TR-590 radio, then that will give me the option to use the free software to start, and have the option to get the RT software if I think I need better/different functionality.

I use an RT Systems cable with Yaesu/Standard Horizon software to program my HX-400.RT Systems use a genuine chip instead of a fake. Makes it easier to have the correct driver. Nothing proprietary about them.

I use the genuine RT systems cable for my TYT 9800 when I program it with CHIRP. Works just fine.
