Enable or Disable Hardware Acceleration in Google Chrome

By
The latest version of Google Chrome makes websites respond much faster, plays videos and games more smoothly by utilizing the computer’s graphics card rather than relying on the process alone. By default, hardware acceleration is disabled in Chrome.

If your computer has somewhat a decent graphic card, you can activate hardware acceleration in Chrome.

How to enable hardware acceleration in Google Chrome

To enable hardware acceleration in Google Chrome, type about: flags in the address bar and hit Enter button. Now locate the following three options and enable them.

  1. GPU accelerated compositing
  2. GPU Accelerated Canvas 2D
  3. Web page Prerendering
(See screenshot above for details). After enabling the above three options, restart Chrome.

Note: If you notice any performance issues because of old or incompatible display driver, simply disable hardware acceleration.
