GPU Hardware Acceleration to Convert Video/Audio Files at A Fast Speed
GPU is known as Graphics Processing Unit, which 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. Similar to CPU, both components are used to speed up rendering, converting, and optimizing the overall performance. When you need to learn more about GPU acceleration, here is the ultimate guide you should not miss.

Part 3: FAQs about GPU Acceleration
What are the differences between hardware acceleration and software acceleration?
Software acceleration is suitable for a limited number of tasks, hardware acceleration works for most of the tasks. 4Easysoft provides an excellent balance with the GPU hardware acceleration and the software acceleration to convert and polish the files losslessly.
Can I replace a better GPU from another computer for hardware acceleration?
It is not recommended. The driver support for old GPUs will soon end and the user experience will get worse by passing time. It is the reason that an old graphics card is not an ideal option. Moreover, the replaced GPU requires an additional power supply and better performance of other hardware.
Why does the Chrome browser crashes when I enable the GPU acceleration?
GPU acceleration boosts performance for certain tasks, such as video editing and conversion. It may cause issues such as freezing or crashing in Google Chrome or other browsers, exiting gameplay, you can simply disable the feature to fix the related issues.
When you need to enable the GPU acceleration for 4Easysoft, here is the ultimate guide you should follow. Hardware acceleration is very necessary while dealing with some picture or video editing and converting on your computer. Since 4Easysoft is highly supporting GPU acceleration, which creates a super fast conversion speed with AI technologies.
