Nero Move it gets CUDA acceleration

— 3:24 PM on April 23, 2009

Another consumer multimedia application can now use GeForce GPUs to speed up video encoding. Nero has released an update for Move it that brings CUDA support to the multimedia mobility software.

Move it isn't exactly new, of course. The first version of the app came out last September, promising to let users easily transfer music, videos, and photos across different computers and devices—assuming they paid $50 for the full version, that is. The free CUDA update lets users transcode H.264 video with GeForce 8 or better graphics processors, which significantly reduces encoding times (Nvidia claims a five-fold improvement) and lowers CPU utilization. Think Badaboom, but in a different package from a different developer.

If you already own Move it, you can download the CUDA-enabling update right now from Nero's download site. Otherwise, you can grab a free trial on this page and buy the full version here. Apparently, the full digital download is available at a discount for $29.99 (compared to $49.99 for the boxed copy).

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
