Hi Carlo,

It all depends on what effects you use in your composition. After Effects does not make much use of your GPU unless you use the Raytrace Renderer or plugins/effects that use it - e.g. Video Copilot Element 3D . For the most part, it will simply render on your CPU

I made a video talking about some of those aspects in the following video:

Hope that helps!
