Hi, I have a Dell XPS 13 (9350) with Intel HD Graphics 520. For a year I exported in Media Encoder with hardware acceleration and it worked flawlessly. After replacing the stock m.2 sata drive with a pcie drive, hardware acceleration is no longer available and export times are about 25% longer. Any ideas? Thank you for any thoughts on this.
Hardware acceleration is related to your graphics card driver. If you changed your system drive then the version of the driver may need updating. Not really sure on the Intel graphics chip though - are you sure you don't have an NVidia chip as well? That is normally what provides GPU acceleration (Cuda using Mercury)... also check your preferences and make sure you've enabled GPU acceleration.
As stated by JOHN MONDO, Hardware acceleration is related to Graphics card driver. Please update the GPU driver.
Please let us know the status after trying the step.
That did it! Simple graphics driver update. Thank you!
