Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers 2019 R3 Release

Published: 09/13/2019, Last Updated: 09/13/2019

Say hello to some of the latest features for the Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers (Intel® GPA) tool suite.

Additional Functionality in Graphics Frame Analyzer

Diff Mode

This features enables you to see the difference any experiment makes both on a performance and visual level. The Diff View Mode shows exactly what portion of a Render Target was directly affected by the applied experiment.

Multiframe View

Screenshots

Quickly navigate through a stream to identify a frame of interest and never second guess whether a frame number will match up with the intended scene.

System-Wide Metrics

View metrics across your system during the time of a stream capture by enabling System-Wide Metrics. Directly correlate GPU time with additional metrics on your system during frametime spikes to identify additional contributors to game performance.

Graphics Trace Analyzer

Parallel Execution Event Track

Turn on Parallel Event Execution to view a track of GPU-intensive calls such as dispatch and draw calls on a more representative timeline that shows event parallelization.

UI Improvement

Scalable UI Elements

Customize each tool's font and element size with the new scalable UI choices. Choose between small, medium, and large to personalize the look of each tool individually.

Intel® GPA Framework

Added the ability to replay a range of callables for Direct3D12 streams.

Added Vulkan* Pipeline Statistics Timestamp Query Manager support. Query Manager will default to the Vulkan Pipeline Statistics Timestamp Query Manager if Intel metrics aren't found and can be specified programmatically.

Added a new event/message dispatch system for communication between decoupled systems, this enables inter-layer communication.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
