Why You Need Using Hardware Acceleration to Fast Rip DVD

Hardware acceleration is the use of hardware modules to replace software algorithms. This makes full use of the fast features inherent in hardware so it's usually more efficient than software algorithms. If you have a large collection to digitalize, hardware acceleration will boost the ripping and converting process, which help you finish the task in super-fast speed, and this is what VideoByte DVD Ripper support: multithread and multicore hardware acceleration. No matter what graphics card you are using: Intel, NVIDIA or AMD, VideoByte can automatically detect it.

Your computer must allow hardware acceleration before VideoByte uses it. It is enabled by default. But if you want to confirm,open Control Panel > Network and Internet > Internet Options > Advanced > Accelerated graphics. "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering" should be unchecked.

So this is my all-time favorite method as well as one of the best ways to copy DVD to pc. It is fast because of the excellent software algorithms & hardware acceleration. Is this article useful for you? How do you think about VideoByte DVD Ripper? You are welcome to leave the comments below.
