Intel graphic cards support hardware accelerated encoding on Windows and Linux

Intel GPUs have the hardware accelerated video encoder called Intelยฎ Quick Sync Video.

The encoder is well supported in Gyroflow and offers fast video render times on Windows and Linux.

Important! Always make sure you have the latest driver installed from the official Intel drivers page. As long as your GPU has the hardware encoder, most acceleration issues are solved by installing the latest driver.
