How can I enable GPU hardware acceleration?

The GPU can partially offload the graphics controller after enabling the graphics controller’s hardware acceleration feature. In practice, this means that the more efficient GPU will be the one doing the calculations for many tasks, and the processor power can be reserved for other tasks. For example, video playback can be done with virtually 1-2% CPU utilization with the GPU even when watching 4K videos.

Also, image editors and video editors can benefit from being able to use not only the CPU but also the GPU. If you want to check the hardware acceleration status, go to Settings, find the Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling option and turn it on. You will also need to restart your computer to activate the settings. If hardware acceleration cannot be enabled, the graphics driver does not support this feature. This often happens with notebooks or older and/or poorly maintained computers.
