Choose the view of the Graphics Frame Analyzer
pane you want for your analysis:
  • Erg Graph
    - shows metrics associated with each erg
  • Render Targets Graph
     - shows metrics associated with sets of ergs, grouped by render target
On traditional rendering architectures, you can toggle between the two views.
On tile-based rendering architectures, only the
Render Targets
view is available. This is because work is processed in batches, and per-erg metrics are not meaningful in tile-based rendering. For more information, refer to Erg Graph and Render Targets View.
To configure the bar chart, use the X-axis and Y-axis Metrics drop-down lists.
For example, to compare the relationship between shader durations with a single visualization, set
VS Duration
for the
axis and
PS Duration
for the
axis. In this configuration, tall and skinny bars represent ergs that utilize more pixel shader resources; short and wide bars represent ergs that utilize more vertex shader resources.
Graphics Frame Analyzer automatically saves
settings for the
Bar Chart
. If you exit the Graphics Frame Analyzer and then run this tool again, the previous settings are used. To reset the settings to the default, go to the
menu >
Reset Metric Selections

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.
