On my Desktop PC I do a lot of media encoding, video editing and converting. The software I currently use, takes up a long processing time as it seems to just use the CPU rather than the GPU for encoding. Is there any software that will use both together to speed up the encoding?
My CPU is a Quad-Core AMD Athlon II X4 630, and my graphics card is an ATI Radeon 7870 (with drivers only, not the bloatware Catalyst Control Panel).
The rest of my desktop is 8GB RAM, 250GB SSD and 2TB HDD, running Windows 7 64-bit.
