Powerful Graphics Performance Analyzers

Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers are powerful, agile tools enabling game developers to utilize the full performance potential of their gaming platform, including (though not limited to) Intel® Core™ and Intel® HD Graphics, as well as Intel tablets running the Android*. Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers visualizes performance data from your application, enabling you to understand system-level and individual frame performance issues, as well as allowing you to perform 'what-if' experiments to estimate potential performance gains from optimizations.


System Analyzer

Analyze CPU Graphics API, and GPU performance and power metrics.


Graphics Frame Analyzer

Perform single-frame analysis and optimization for Microsoft DirectX*, OpenGL*, and OpenGL ES* game workloads.


Platform Analyzer

View where your application is spending time across the CPU and GPU
