Graphics Cache (L3)

Metric Name
Description
GTI / L3 : Slice <N> L3 Bank <M> Active
Percentage of time that L3 bank ‘M’ on slice ‘N’ is servicing memory requests.
GTI / L3 : Slice <N> L3 Bank <M> Stalled
Percentage of time that L3 bank ‘M’ on slice ‘N’ has a memory request but cannot service.
When
GTI / L3: Slice <N> L3 Bank <M> Active
is above 80 percent in conjunction with a
GTI/ L3: Slice <N> L3 Bank <M>
Stalled value greater than 5 percent, it can indicate a hotspot on L3. Several clients interface with L3 for memory requests, and when a hotspot is seen here, improve memory access patterns to SLM, UAVs, texture, and constants.
 

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.
