You can use following URL to check if GPU acceleration is enabled for video decode in Chrome: chrome://gpu/ Graphics Feature Status Canvas: Hardware accelerated Compositing: Hardware accelerated on all pages and threaded 3D CSS: Hardware accelerated CSS Animation: Accelerated and threaded WebGL: Hardware accelerated WebGL ...

It is actually neither. It is software that uses your graphics card to do work that would normally be done on the CPU otherwise. It is therefore decided on a per application basis to support hardware acceleration, as it is something that must be coded by the programmer. As an example, Flash supports it for Windows, but not for Linux or Macs.

Hardware acceleration is where certain processes - usually 3D graphics processing - is performed on specialist hardware on the graphics card (the GPU) rather than in software on the main CPU. In general you should always enable hardware acceleration as it will result in better performance of your application. This will usually be a higher frame rate (the ...

If you press Shift + Esc while in the browser it will bring up Google Chrome's internal Task Manager. If there is a process titled GPU Process, then that means Chrome is using hardware/GPU acceleration in order to display/render a particular page.

Firefox 4 disables hardware acceleration for certain graphics chipsets they feel are unreliable. To check from within Firefox whether GPU acceleration is enabled, type in about:support in your address bar and press Enter. Then look in the Grahpics section. If it's enabled, the lines labeled Direct2D Enabled and DirectWrite Enabled will say true. ...

I can't give you any specific hardware recommendations. In your case I think it's mostly CPU that you can improve. Just buy the best you can get for money — Intel's i7 are quite the workhorses now. Then again, it all depends on the codec. If you have a quad core and a poor codec, it will only use 25% of your CPU. I've experienced this myself: On the ...

To the best of my knowledge, the VMWare virtual CPU (the CPU that the guest sees) doesn't include hardware virtualization support. (Certainly it doesn't on our VMWare cluster.) This means that enabling or disabling hardware acceleration for a second-level guest shouldn't make any difference, just as it would make no difference for a guest on a physical ...

Yes, SketchUp can take advantage of hardware acceleration. In SketchUp navigate to the Window menu. Click Preferences -> OpenGL Check Use hardware acceleration and hit OK. A better video card will definitely improve performance. SketchUp is highly dependent on GPU power. From the words of Google: We recommend any graphics card that fully supports ...

I hope I interpreted your question correctly. From Intel's Quick Sync page: Many independent software vendors (ISVs) have begun optimizing their products for this new technology, including: Arcsoft MediaConverter Arcsoft MediaImpression Badaboom Media Converter Corel Digital Studio CyberLink MediaEspresso (you've tried that) CyberLink ...

It's probably not, no. You can check with the following: openssl speed -evp aes-128-cbc If each line shows around 3 seconds, it's not hw accelerated. You'll need to update your kernel, compile cryptodev and insert the module, then compile OpenSSL using cryptodev. Ready? Let's go! First, update your kernel and install the headers (check the current ...

You can only enable this setting in the BIOS If you dont know your BIOS password, but you can get to your motherboard you may be able to reset the password or, a more brutal option, reset your BIOS. Power down your machine before attempting these! Depending on your board there are ways of reseting the password, some involve removing a small plastic tab, ...

For windows, yes, for mac, maybe, for linux, there's no mention of it. source On windows Video hardware acceleration support Flash Player 10.3 supports hardware-accelerated decoding of H.264 video on Windows and Mac computers with supported hardware and drivers, providing enhanced video performance. For the latest information on ...

In general terms (not AVS-specific): Monitor your system while your transcode is running. If your CPU utilization is high, you're waiting on your CPU. A faster one or one with more cores (assuming software support for more cores) will improve your transcode times. If your CPU utilization is low, you're probably waiting on disk access. The biggest ...

The 945GME's OpenGL support is software rendering. From the linked Wikipedia page: The GMA 950 shares the same architectural weakness as the GMA 900: no hardware geometry processing. Neither basic hardware transform and lighting, nor more advanced vertex shaders are handled in the GMA hardware, these are only accessible via Software Rendering.

Do a full uninstall of the Flash player on your windows machines using a tool like Revouninstaller to remove even the bits that are normally left behind. You'll need to remove both the versions for IE and FF/Chrome as they're technically different programs on your computer. Then clean your temp files completely using a tool like CCleaner. Then make sure ...

With that processor board, you have a system processor (also sometimes called host processor) connected to an auxiliary processor that the system processor gives work to and controls. If it were closely coupled to the host processor, over a system or special-purpose bus and sharing the instruction set architecture, it would be a co-processor. A loosely ...

I tried to find definitive system requirements for Silverlight but the info is pretty sparse.

If you have a discrete video card you'll probably want to at least try Hardware Acceleration. Though some drivers and models of cards may have compatibility issues and you may end up turning it off. Basically, as you've stated, the acceleration off-loads the processing of the graphics to the GPU. As the web has become more graphically rich, the graphical ...

As we can see here the Inspiron 1525 can contain one of many CPU's ranging from a lowly Celeron 540, through a Pentium Dual-Core T2330 and on up to a Core 2 Duo T8300. As you can see there is three series of processors that could have been used in the laptop, all of those labeled and Intel Celeron or Intel Pentium Dual-Core certainly do not support VT-x ...

Sounds like your graphics drivers are missing. Go to Dell Enter your service tag number. Download "video" drivers for your laptop Install. Hopefully Dell have the correct details for your laptop.

This seems to have something to do with the browser's use of hardware acceleration. In my case, disabling hardware acceleration in the browser resolved the problem. To do this: Open the Options screen (Firefox menu at the top, then Options -> Options). Select the 'Advanced' Pane and then the 'General' Tab. In the Browsing section, locate the checkbox for ...

The Radeon HD3000 series are too old to support modern GPU video decoding via DxVA. See here The 3000 series parts are either "UVD" or "UVD+". You need UVD2 or later to use GPU decoding feature of Chrome/Firefox/VLC/etc. You may still have 3d accelerated graphics, but your GPU does not have the hardware parts to run modern GPU decoding. Also, AMD has ...

No, the behavior is not normal. There is a 99.9% chance that it is due to your use of a buggy graphics driver. The "Use hardware acceleration when available" option determines whether or not to use the GPU to speed up the rendering of webpages. With the option unchecked, webpages are rendered on the CPU, which is less efficient at performing graphics ...

Yes, as your system is slightly more capable than mine, you should be able to watch full HD video using VLC without problems even if VLC decodes H.264 in software. I own a Lenovo Thinkpad R500 with P8400 @ 2.26 GHz and Radeon HD3450 graphics adapter running Windows 10. It's a system with slightly lower performance than your system and it plays H.264 encoded ...

I've also recently become a victim of this, except my discrete card is Nvidia. Fundamentally it is a Windows issue since Linux works just fine with 3 monitors (2 on Intel, third on Nvidia). A lot of people have posted about having this issue and being unable to resolve it. A few have managed to recover. The only solution I've seen people always have ...
