Sampler Is Bottleneck

Metric Description

Sampler stalls EUs due to the full input fifo queue, and starves the output fifo, so EUs need to wait to submit requests to sampler.

Possible Issues

Significant amount of sampler accesses might cause stalls. Consider decreasing the use of the sampler or access it with a better locality.

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.
