A year on from the release of Elemental's Badaboom, GPU-compute acceleration for consumer video apps seems to have creeped into the mainstream. Earlier today, CyberLink and Nvidia announced "unique new features and significantly improved performance" now available in CyberLink's suite of photo- and video-editing applications.
The acceleration features span the following apps:
Also, you'll find GPU-acceleration features in CyberLink's PowerProducer 5 authoring software and the PowerDVD 9 video player, which uses graphics hardware to speed up DVD upscaling.
We swung by CyberLink's software update page, but the firm offers no new GPU-related updates for any of the aforementioned apps just yet. As far as we can tell, though, these apps already supported some level of GPU acceleration when they came out.
