Design with fast, hardware-based video transcoding on board
Focus on the video design challenges that excite you and leave the video transcoding to 2nd generation Intel® Core® processors. Intel® Quick Sync Video adds hardware-based video encode acceleration to 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i3, Core™ i5, and Core™ i7 processors, complementing its already integrated, hardware-based decoding engine and eliminating the need for software-based transcoding of video streams or additional hardware.
A fully accelerated transcode pipeline
With Intel® Quick Sync Video, 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors integrate a fully accelerated video decode, pre-processing, and encode pipeline for fast video transcoding. Intel® Quick Sync Video complements the existing Intel® Clear Video HD Technology and its hardware-based video decoding within 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors.
In internal benchmarks, PCs with Intel® Quick Sync Video can synchronize camcorder content to a handheld device twice as fast as PCs based on previous generation Intel® Core™ processors.1
With Intel® Quick Sync Video built into the processor, your designs will be simpler and easier – and your applications faster. Plus, since transcoding is done in hardware, there is less load on the processor cores and more resources for other tasks. All you need to do is optimize your application for Intel® Quick Sync Video.2
