Frame Overview
Provides the following statistical information for the analyzed frame:
  • The total number of events in the frame, and the number of events currently selected in the
    bar chart and
    API Log
  • Performance statistics, if available for your target system:
    • Duration of the full frame, in microseconds.
    • Duration of the selected events, in microseconds.
    • Theoretical frame rate for the whole frame, in frames per second (FPS), based on the full frame duration.
    • Time difference between the original and the modified frame. This value is shown during experiments with render states or in case of frame resources modifications.

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.
