Hello All, 

The Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers team is proud to announce Intel® GPA 2022.4!

You can download Intel® GPA 2022.4 for FREE from the Intel® GPA homepage.

Watch the full release video from the GPA website, or on Intel's YouTube channel.

All Tools

Support for the new Intel® Arc™ GPUs: DXR Hardware Metrics, Mesh Shaders and VRS Features.

Graphics Frame Analyzer

  • The Intel® Arc™ GPU features can be profiled in Graphics Frame Analyzer, including Intel® Arc™-specific hardware metrics.
  • Render Target Dependency Viewer: The Dependency Viewer was first available in our June 2021 release. We have made several improvements to the UI, making user workflow more efficient..
  • We have made updates to take into account memory peak bandwidth of target platforms for proper identification of memory bottlenecks.

Intel® GPA Framework

  • 20-40% framerate increase on GPA playback of captured streams from DXR-enabled games: Modified the way shader parameters for dispatch rays calls are processed. This applies to Direct3D12 DXR workloads. 
  • Reduced playback overhead by using Compute Shaders to populate shader parameters for dispatch rays that are in the same CommandList in DXR workloads.
  • Improved playback performance by using Resource Barrier batching for state restoration.
  • Improved the Intel® GPA Framework subcapture recorder tool so that it can now capture the first frame and the last frame. You can compress the entire stream and/or filter out unnecessary resources and API calls. You can also create subcaptures (without the compression and/or filtering) with those frames.
  • Lower the barrier of entry to working with Vulkan by using developer-friendly abstractions in Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers Utilities for Vulkan*

Note that 

  • Keyframing has been replaced by Deferred Capture and Sub-capture, for more control and flexibilty. Check out these awesome features.
