AMD GPU PerfStudio 2.8 Released
AMD has published a new version of GPU PerfStudio. GPU PerfStudio is a profiler and debugger for OpenGL and Direct3D (D3D10 and D3D11) applications.
GPU PerfStudio includes several tools:
- 1 – a frame debugger that allows you to visualize the graphics state and resources in your frame.
- 2 – a frame profiler that allows you to identify per draw call performance issues at the hardware counter level.
- 3 – a shader debugger that allows you to step through and analyze your shader code and its output.
- 4 – an API trace window with integrated CPU timing information.
GPU PerfStudio 2.8 includes the following changes:
- New Properties Window added to display text based data
- The previous text based windows have been replaced by a single properties window
- The default stage layouts have been edited to use this new window
- Shader Debugger
- Constant table UI improvements
- More assembly shaders are now debuggable
- Fix for for the register mask of the last instruction being black
- The contents of the Shader constant table can now be saved to disk
- Shader Editor now supports relative paths
- The Profiler now gives the user feedback as the profile is taking place
- Single Draw Call Profiling is now supported
- Ability to perfrom a profile a specific number of times
- Support for 7000 series Performance Counters
- Reduced the memory overhead when many counters are used in a profile
- Advanced Picture Viewer
- Now saves to disk the image that you actually see (i.e. the channels the user selects)
- DDS Support for DXGI_FORMAT_R32_UINT
- Client connection dailog now saves settings upon connection
- OpenGL 4.1 Compute Shader now supported
- Support for OpenGL debug context
Maybe I missed something, but what are OpenGL 4.1 compute shaders?
