GPU PerfStudio V3.1

New Features

  • NEW – GPU ShaderAnalyzer for GCN

Optimize your shader code using the latest version of this tool by viewing compiler statistics, ISA and D3D ASM code, and customizing your compiler settings for the latest AMD GCN GPUs.

  • Profiler support for D3D11_QUERY
  • Additional counters have been added to show the time spent in each stage of the GPU:
    • VSTime – Time vertex shader is busy in milliseconds
    • HSTime – Time hull shaders is in milliseconds
    • DSTime – Time domain shader is busy in milliseconds
    • GSTime – Time geometry shader is busy in milliseconds
    • PSTime – Time pixel shader is busy in milliseconds
    • CSTime – Time compute shader is busy in milliseconds
  • Support for OpenGL 4.4 (Windows and Linux)

Bug Fixes

  • Many stability enhancements for titles running on DirectX 11 and OpenGL
  • Improved support for viewing MSAA depth buffers and render targets
  • Fixes for client and server side memory leaks
  • Fix for black texture images in some Steam for Linux games
  • Improvements in previous versions

Integrated tools

ToolIntegration2GPU PerfStudio integrates five tools that are key for the contemporary graphics developer. A Frame Debugger that allows you to visualize the graphics state and resources in your frame, a Frame Profiler that allows you to identify per draw call performance issues at the hardware counter level, a Shader Debugger that allows you to step through and debug your shader code and its output, an API Trace window with integrated CPU timing information, and a Shader Analyzer for optimizing your shader code. This screen shot (click image for larger view) shows the Frame Profiler and, Frame Debugger in use at the same time. In this scenario the profiler was used to identify an expensive draw call. The draw call was selected in the blue list on the right hand side causing the Frame Debugger to jump to that draw call. The vertex and index buffer, the texture assets, and depth buffer for this draw call are currently displayed. The pixel shader code can be stepped through where the relationship between the code and assets can be thoroughly explored to identify costly aspects of the shader.
