VSO Blu-ray Conversion software products now gain in speed and performance when used with computers equipped with a Nvidia Cuda graphic card.
Instead of using the CPUs resources, the conversion process is handled by the graphic card resources, improving video encoding/decoding speed. This also means that the CPUs resources are available to perform other tasks while the conversion is running.
VSO claims that conversions can be up to 4 times faster with Cuda and uses half CPU ressources and memory.
In Blu-ray to DVD, the decoding part is automatically supported by Cuda if it is detected on the computer. For Blu-ray to PS3 both decoding and encoding will be done by Cuda if selected by the user.
VSO also plans to integrate Cuda in its popular ConvertXtoDVD software soon.
