Update GPU Drivers on Windows

An up-to-date graphics driver can fully utilize the potential of GPUs for AI workloads in VideoProc Converter AI. With GPU computation enabled, Frame Interpolation can be activated successfully, and Stabilization and Super Resolution can run much faster.

If the driver is outdated, you may encounter the following errors while using AI features in VideoProc Converter AI.

  • "Your graphics card version is too low": The current GPU is outdated and cannot use recent Vulkan API to handle AI tasks.
  • "No device found": The graphics card is too old to be detected or your computer has no GPU.
  • "No Vulkan found": The current running environment (incl. the GPU and GPU driver) is out of date and cannot work with the Vulkan API.

To fix the errors above and enhance the AI function performances, updating your GPU driver is always the easiest and most effective solution.

To enable GPU computation, you need to keep the drivers updated with support for Vulkan API (1.2.0+) or OpenCL API (1.0+). Now follow the instructions below to update GPU drivers on Windows 11, 10, 8, 7.

Step 1 Get your graphics card info.

Open the Control Panel on your computer and click "Device Manager". Also, you can open it by searching Windows. Expand the "Display adaptors" option and you can see the name of the graphics card on your computer.

Check the current graphics card info

Step 2 Check if your graphics card supports Vulkan 1.2.0 or higher.

Visit the hardware database of Vulkan or OpenCL. Input the name of your graphics card. Check the API column to see if it supports 1.2.0 or higher version.

Check Supported Vulkan API

If your device is not listed here, you can go to its official website to check the Vulkan API compatibility:

Step 3 Download the latest graphics driver.

Once you find your graphics card is compatible with Vulkan 1.2.0+ or OpenCL 1.0+, download the latest driver from the major graphics driver makers according to the specific type of your graphics card and OS version.

Step 4 Install the driver and restart.

Double-click on the .exe file to run the installation. When it is completed, reboot your computer to let these changes take effect.

Install the latest GPU driver

Launch VideoProc Converter AI and let it detect your hardware again. Now you can use AI frame interpolation, stabilization, and super resolution features with GPU computation and acceleration.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to do when my graphics card does not support Vulkan 1.2.0+ or OpenCL 1.0+?

VideoProc Converter AI has the lowest computer configuration requirements in the industry. Stabilization and Super Resolution in it function normally even without GPU computation. Currently, only Frame Interpolation has the requirements above, and most graphics cards can support it by upgrading.

What if there's no update for my graphics driver?

It's likely that the manufacturer hasn't released a newer driver yet. So just keep checking periodically. While, if your card is especially old and the manufacturer no longer releases new drivers, use CPU computation or buy a discrete graphics card for your computer.

Why does it not work with the latest driver installed?

In addition to GPU and GPU drivers, there is an optimal hardware configuration that is well-suited for running AI workloads efficiently, such as processors, memory, and storage. Check the detailed tech specifications of VideoProc Converter AI to build your PC properly.
