Radeon™ GPU Analyzer v2.4.1 introduces support for DXR shaders in a new mode of the command line tool.
Radeon™ Memory Visualizer (RMV) is a tool provided by AMD for use by game engine developers. It allows engineers to examine, diagnose, and understand the GPU memory management within their projects.
This is a Visual Studio® Code extension for the Radeon GPU Analyzer (RGA). This extension makes it possible to use RGA directly from within VS Code.
Tom Hammersley from Codemasters talks about integrating FidelityFX into the Ego Engine and implementing Contrast Adaptive Sharpening (CAS).
With DirectX 12 comes the power of generating disassembly and hardware resource usage statistics that are closest to the real-world case, and therefore making better performance optimization decisions.
Radeon GPU Analyzer (RGA) has support for DirectX12 compute shaders with the command line tool. This mode can generate GCN/RDNA ISA disassembly for your compute shaders, regardless of the physically installed GPU.
A guide to using the Windows Performance Analyzer tool, with a focus on video resources.
Understanding concurrency (and what breaks it) is extremely important when optimizing for modern GPUs.
The final instalment in Tamas Rabel’s insight into developing the Total War engine looks at Multi-GPU.
Tamas Rabel talks about how Total War: Warhammer utilized asynchronous compute to extract some extra GPU performance in DirectX® 12 and delves into the process of moving some of the passes in the engine to asynchronous compute pipelines.
Here’s Tamas Rabel again with some juicy details about how Creative Assembly brought Total War to DirectX® 12.
Tamas Rabel from Creative Assembly discusses how performance was measured with the Total War Engine.
Tamas Rabel, Lead Graphics Programmer on the Total War series provides a detailed look at the Total War renderer as well as digging deep into some of the optimizations that the team at Creative Assembly did for the brilliant, Total War: Warhammer.
One of the mandates of GPUOpen is to give developers better access to the hardware, and this post details extensions for Vulkan and Direct3D12 that expose additional GCN features to developers.
Asynchronous compute can help you to get the maximum GPU usage. I’ll be explaining the details based on the nBodyGravity sample from Microsoft.
