It is annoying that computer storage space might run out when you are editing video or image with a professional program. You will always be reminded that you should make sure there is enough memory and disk space.

At this moment, GPU acceleration is one of the effective ways to solve this problem for you.

Ultimate Guide about GPU Acceleration - FoneLab Support List

1. What is GPU Acceleration

GPU, which is also named graphics processing unit. As Wikipedia said, it is a 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.

GPU acceleration means offload some time-consuming and compute-intensive code portions to accelerate CPUs for general-purpose scientific and engineering computing.

As you might that, GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations, and game consoles. Does it mean that it works for multi-players or gamers? NOT EXACTLY. In this post, we will show you how to enable GPU acceleration for FoneLab software correctly and easily.

2. GPU Acceleration Kinds that FoneLab Support

There are various GPU accelerations you can get from Google, so you can choose one suitable for you.

Below are GPU accelerations FoneLab Support.

3. How to Enable GPU Acceleration for FoneLab Software

GPU acceleration enables video editors to speed up the conversion. You will be required to set up and enable GPU acceleration before using it. In this part, we will take Intel Quick Sync Video as an example and show you how.

Go to Microsoft official site, download and install the latest Intel graphics drivers.

For Windows 10 users, right-click on desktop, choose Display Settings > Advanced Display Settings > Detect above. While other users, select Screen Resolution > Detect instead.

go to detectadvanced display settings

Click options next to Display, choose Intel® HD Graphics output Graphics.

Find Mutiple displays, choose Try to connect anyway on VGA. Click Apply.

multiple displays

Select main display and choose Extend these displays from Multiple displays drop-down list. Click Apply > OK.

Restart computer to check if you can use it.

Go to FoneLab Video Converter Ultimate, you can begin to convert video or audio with a highlighted GPU acceleration.
