Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers 2020.2 Release

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

Graphics Trace Analyzer

ETW Providers

ETW Providers

Capture kernel or application level event data from Event-Tracing-for-Windows Providers. Select any ETW Provider that is registered on the operating system from a dropdown list, or subscribe to custom providers.

Configurable Time Sampling

Time Sampling Screenshots

When setting up trace options choose from a selection of intervals. Previously, the System-wide Time-based GPU Metrics toggle allowed only 2 modes – metrics either per frame or in 400μs intervals. Now select from the following – per frame, or in 400μs, 200μs, 100μs, 50μs, 25μs or 12μs intervals.

Graphics Monitor

Extended Set of Metrics

Metrics Sets Screenshots

Select from a wide range of Intel graphics metrics sets in Graphics Monitor. The metrics set chosen here automatically populates in System Analyzer. Change the metrics set in either tool, they automatically sync.

Intel® GPA Framework

Added Support for:

  • Support for Vulkan 1.2 (SDK 1.2.135) workloads
  • Enabled graceful handling when out of disk space. The HUD now displays a notification. Serialization to the disk is halted to prevent the application from crashing.
  • "Scissor Rect" and "2x2 Texture" experiments now available for DirectX12 workloads

Product and Performance Information


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. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
