Analyzing Metal Applications

Intel® GPA offers a variety of features for analyzing and optimizing Metal* applications:
  • Get a real-time view of over two dozen critical system metrics, such as CPU and GPU metrics.
  • Collect and display hardware and software metrics data from your application in real time.
  • Perform graphics pipeline experiments to isolate graphics bottlenecks quickly.
  • Create frame capture files for in-depth frame analysis with Graphics Frame Analyzer.
  • Understand the performance of your application at the system level, frame level, render target level, and draw call level.
  • Conduct "what if" optimization experiments to isolate performance bottlenecks, without the need to recompile or rebuild your application.

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.
