AMD APP, the abbreviation of AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing, is designed to improve video quality and enhance application performance. It is a set of advanced hardware and software technologies that makes graphics processors (GPUs) works together with CPU, which enable GPU and CPU totally play their own advantages, so as to execute heterogeneously to accelerate many applications beyond just graphics. This helps reduce slowdowns and stuttering in intensive, media-rich applications, providing a better application experience to the end users.
When AMD APP Acceleration is on, much more space and resources of the computer CPU can be reserved for other operations while converting BD/DVD/video files since the video conversion is processing on AMD's GPU rather than your computer's CPU. Though users can optionally enable/disable GPU acceleration once AMD graphic card has been detected, FonePaw suggests enabling AMD APP Acceleration while converting HD video files.
Now FonePaw products have been optimized with AMD APP Acceleration technology which can largely accelerate video conversion speed. The following graphic shows the performance while converting HD TS video with H.264 codec on your computer with and without AMD APP-enabled GPU.
For you to enjoy the fast converting speed brought by the AMD APP technology, please make sure that you have installed the AMD graphics driver first. Please follow the following specific guide to download and install AMD graphics driver (opens new window).
