Adobe Premiere Pro receiving GPU Accelerated encoding features with version 1.4.2

Adobe is battling to tackle length export times by adding support for hardware-based encoding to its editing suite, allowing for hardware-accelerated H.264 and HEVC encoding on AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.  

These changes have arrived with version 14.2 of Premiere Pro, and it can significantly speed up export times on compatible hardware. Previously, encoding was left to the processing power of CPUs, but shifting this work to the dedicated encode/decode blocks of modern graphics cards can enable faster encoding times and lower levels of power consumption while encoding.

When testing a beta release for Premiere Pro 14.2, Puget Systems noted a 2-4x performance boost when using hardware-accelerated encoding over software rendering with Nvidia graphics hardware. The company also noted 1.3-2.5x faster encodes using Nvidia’s hardware-accelerated encoding over Intel Quicksync.   

A list of officially supported/recommended graphics cards for hardware encoding can be found on Adobe’s Premiere Pro system requirements page, with Nvidia’s support extending from GTX to Quadro while AMD’s export comes primarily from Radeon Pro and FirePro products.
