3D-Tech News Around The Web / RenderDoc v0.91 - Bugfix release
« Last post by Stefan on August 16, 2017, 10:37:26 PM »
Version v0.91 - Bugfix release

As a follow up from v0.90, this includes an important bugfix that unfortunately wasn't caught in release testing.


It primarily affects D3D captures with shader source embedded (compiled with D3D11COMPILE_DEBUG or the appropriate fxc switch) although it could affect GL/Vulkan captures in some circumstances. When debugging or sometimes when opening the shader with source files available, there was a crash due to code not being updated for the UI layout changes to cope with the GCN disassembly feature that was added.

Vega is the most sweeping change to AMD’s core graphics technology since the
introduction of the first GCN-based chips five years ago. The Vega
architecture is intended to meet today’s needs by embracing several
principles: flexible operation, support for large data sets, improved
power efficiency, and extremely scalable performance. Vega
introduces a host of innovative features in pursuit of this vision, which
we’ll describe in the following pages. This new architecture promises
to revolutionize the way GPUs are used in both established and
emerging markets by offering developers new levels of control,
flexibility, and scalability.
