10/26/2010

Freemake.com has released Freemake Video Converter version 1.2, a free multi-media program for Windows. Freemake Video Converter performs extremely fast video conversions between all of the popular video formats, and load them onto the most popular handheld devices, and publish movies on YouTube.

Online PR News – 26-October-2010 – – The latest version of Freemake Video Converter has integrated NVIDIA CUDA technology for even faster and more efficient video conversion. The video processing chips on NVIDIA's latest video cards can process data much more quickly than even the fastest PC's CPU. By outsourcing tasks normally handled by CPU to the graphics card, CUDA not only increases the program performance dramatically but also provides a significant acceleration of the entire conversion process. Now if a PC is equipped with an NVIDIA-powered graphics card and the card driver is updated, users can feel all the benefits of CUDA-accelerated conversion.

Tests have proved that this shift from CPU to GPU usage boosted the speed of Freemake Video Converter by many times. Thus, the videos can be converted to AVI, iPod, iPhone, PSP, and Android devices in a few minutes.

CUDA technology was invented and released by NVIDIA. It is available for PC equipped with NVIDIA-powered graphics cards such as GeForce-8 or higher.

Freemake Video Converter is available without charge. It runs on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7.
