What's new with WinX DVD Ripper Platinum?
Thanks to its hardware encoder, processor, and decoder, made possible by level-3 hardware acceleration technology, which is powered by Intel and NVIDIA, it can do a DVD to digital conversion twice as fast as before, while chewing up very little CPU power, maintaining high quality, and delivering optimal output file size.
WinX DVD Ripper Platinum can automatically detect and choose CPU based hardware accelerator for you after run this program.
How fast is WinX DVD Ripper Platinum?
WinX DVD Ripper Platinum essentially offloads CPU-intensive and complicated computing tasks, like DVD conversion, from a general CPU to a dedicated GPU. According to Digiarty's test, it ran only 8.45 minutes with an average 385FPS (when NVIDIA NVENC was enabled) while ripping a 2.5-hour DVD to MP4 (H.264) on a Windows 10 PC.
Previously, it would've taken 16.29 minutes at 201FPS.
How much CPU does WinX DVD Ripper Platinum use?
One of the key features in the latest version of WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is that it significantly reduces CPU usage, which is impressive, considering DVD conversion is one of the most CPU-intensive tasks. In Digiarty's test (mentioned above), it consumed 14 per cent CPU power with NVENC enabled (but ascended to 57 percent when disabled)
Other DVD rippers, like HandBrake, take up to 99% CPU power, according to Digiarty, which can cause CPU overheating on your machine, and, as a a result, a software crash or a total system freeze.
Can a low-power PC run WinX DVD Ripper Platinum?
Yes. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum (8.8.0) works on Windows 10, 8.1/8, 7, and lower. It supports both 32 bit and 64 bit.
Because the intensive process of a DVD conversion is performed purely by the software, a low-configured desktop computer or laptop, which would typically use over 90 per cent of its CPU to convert a DVD and possibly overheat and become unresponsive, can be empowered to easily convert DVDs with WinX DVD Ripper Platinum.
Digiarty said that as long as a Sandy Bridge CPU or GeForce and higher equipped-computer can utilise Intel's QSV and NVIDIA NVENC based hardware acceleration, it can handle speedy DVD conversions and share the burden of CPU. With level-3 hardware acceleration, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum can get the most out of hardware.
