Just installed Intel VTune Amplifier XE 2013 on a new notebook with second generation core i7u4500 CPU under Windows 8 Pro 64bit,
but none of the hardware event-basedsampling (EBS) is available. Selecting any of the analysers displays "Unsupported Architecture Type".
Are you using latest Update 15? You may check: (You need to open a command prompt as administrator privilege)
1. \VTune Amplifier XE 2013\bin32\amplxe-sepreg.exe -u ; check driver's status
Also you can use amplxe-sepreg.exe [u|i] to uninstall/reinstall drivers
2. If drivers are loaded, you try "amplxe-cl -collect snb-general-exploration -duration 10" to test.
Note that Sandbridge, Ivybridge and Haswell use same analysis type name
