Video Card Accelerated Video Encoding News Update

. Monday, June 16, 2008

As I wrote before, Elemental Technologies together with NVidia developing GPU accelerated H.264 (MPEG4-10/AVC) encoding and previously claimed x12 times boost. Real numbers and comparisons yet to come, however lucky people at Anandtech got their hands on "severely limited beta" of Elemental Technologies' BadaBOOM Media Converter. Initial results not yet conclusive, however one thing 100% clear - it's faster than CPU alone encoding and CPU usage while using Video card right now only 20-30%, which is obviously improvement over 100% on CPU encoding alone.
