Part 1. What is GPU Acceleration?

GPU, graphics processing unit, is the specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display device.

The above explanation is from WIKIPEDIA.

In short, GPU is the embedded system in computer, mobile phones, game consoles, etc., which can accelerate the progress while you process large blocks of data.

The GPU can be presented on a video card or embedded on the motherboard when you buy a computer.

Part 2. What GPU Acceleration Should I Choose?

As mentioned above, GPU is embedded on your computer system, so if your computer supports the built-in GPU acceleration, you can use it to speed up your computer performance. However, there are various GPU accelerations in the market like Intel Quick Sync Video, AMD OpenCL™ Accelerated Parallel Processing, NVIDIA NVENC, etc.

They work similarly, and you can choose the big brand to get the guarantee.

However, not all the GPU accelerations are supported by Apeaksoft, and the following GPU accelerations are compatible with Apeaksoft software.

Part 3. How to Enable GPU Acceleration for Using Apeaksoft Software

If you meet the above requirements to use GPU acceleration on your computer, you just need to enable it or select the one that you need if you have more than one GPU acceleration supports.

Here, we will take Intel Quick Sync Video as an example.

Step 1

Download, install the latest Intel graphics drivers from Microsoft official page. Make sure the drivers are compatible with your Intel HD graphics card model from.

Step 2

Right-click in the empty space of the desktop screen, select Screen Resolution, click Detect to start detecting inactive video outputs.


Note: If you are running Windows 10, just go to your desktop, and right-click the mouse to select Display Settings, choose Advanced Display Settings and click Detect above.

Advanced Display Settings
Step 3

Select detected display output for Intel® HD Graphics output Graphics and select Try to connect anyway on VGA from Multiple displays dropdown, after that, click Apply.

Step 4

Click your main display and choose Extend these displays from Multiple displays dropdown. After that, click Apply and OK to exit the settings.


Then restart your computer to check if you can apply the Intel acceleration.

Surely, it is not done, and you need to enable the GPU acceleration on Apeaksoft Video Converter Ultimate.

Run Video Converter Ultimate, click Preference from the menu drop-down list to go to the General tab by default, then select the checkbox of Enable GPU Acceleration and select the GPU acceleration from the drop-down list of Prefer Select.

After that, restart the program and you will use GPU acceleration successfully.
