System Analyzer HUD displays several kinds of metrics:
  • Intel® HD Graphics 3000/2000 and Intel® HD Graphics GPUs:
    • CPU
    • DirectX
    • GPU
      • Execution Units
      • Geometry ShaderInput-Assembler
      • Main
      • Memory
      • Output-Merger
      • Pixel Shader
      • Rasterizer
      • Texture Sampler
      • Vertex Shader
    • Power Metrics
  • Non-Intel GPUs and Intel GPUs prior to Intel® HD Graphic
    • CPU
    • DirectX
Metrics are displayed in the form of sparklines.
They provide the following information:
  • Metrics name
  • Instantaneous values (white)
  • Minimum metrics values (red)
  • Maximum metrics values (green)
    The minimum and maximum values displayed reflect the min/max during the last seven seconds.
System Analyzer HUD may make available only the default set of metrics that it provides on non-Intel GPUs, even when using Intel® HD Graphics, in the following cases:
  • On non-Intel GPUs and on older Intel GPUs such as Intel® GMA 4500/X4500/X4500HD/4500MHD, only the default set of metrics is available
  • The application is using the Microsoft DirectX* 11 API, but is forcing it to use feature level 9. This is also known as DX11-on-9 mode.
  • The application is using the WARP rasterization (Windows* Advanced Rasterization Platform).

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.
