Hello Intel GPA users,

Today, the 19th of August, we've released an update to Intel GPA 4.1 -- the update fixes two issues that may affect a small number of customers:

  • Intel GPA will no longer block trace file capture on systems that do not have accurate clock synchronization across system cores. This allows trace capture on older systems, but at reduced accuracy (Intel highly recommends using systems with Intel Core Processors for accurate results). See this article for more information.
  • In some situations the Intel GPA Platform Analyzer displayed incorrect data in the hardware view.
