Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers 2020.4 Release

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

Graphics Trace Analyzer 

Full support of DirectX*12 Synchronization Events

View fully supported Microsoft DirectX *12 Synchronization Primitives with Bezier curve arrows between dependent packets by selecting a call and viewing its cooresponding synchronization call in the timeline of Intel® Graphics Trace Analyzer. This release allows for easy visualization of the formerly highlighting of GPU synchronization, GPU to CPU synchronization, CPU synchronization, and now CPU to GPU synchronization as well, for enhanced profiling of your application's in Graphics Trace Analyzer 

System Analyzer / Graphics Trace Analyzer

Multi-GPU Profiling 

In this release of Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers you can enable multiple GPUs in Graphics Monitor under the Metrics tab then view how multiple GPUs are working concurrently by viewing GPU metrics in System Analyzer or Graphics Trace Analyzer. 

Graphics Monitor

Vulkan Deferred Stream Capture

Graphics Monitor now supports Vulkan* deferred stream capture by enabling the Defer Stream Capture option under the Stream tab of Graphics Monitor, allowing you to start your stream capture at any desired point in your application's execution. Additionally you can record multiple stream captures throughout the applications execution by pressing your Start/Stop Stream Capture key binding. 

Intel® GPA Framework

Highlighted Features: 

  • Multi-Frame analysis is now supported for Microsoft DirectX* 11 applications in Pre-Alpha.
  • Deferred stream captures for Vulkan* and Microsoft DirectX* 12 applications can now be triggered multiple times throughout an application's execution. 
  • Added the ability to define the number of frames to capture in a deferred capture, reducing capture overhead by triggering captures at any point in the gameplay over a specified number of frames.
