Thanks to Apple and the VideoToolbox framework our macOS applications can greatly speed up video encoding and decoding by using Intel’s QuickSync hardware acceleration.
All Macs released in or after 2016 and MacPros7,1 (Late 2019) can use the hardware acceleration for video encoding and decoding. MacPros6,1 (Late 2013) can not use hardware based video encoding or decoding.
Supported macOS versions:
macOS 10.13.6 or later
