Feature Enhancements:

  • OpenGL Interop Range Profiling
    • Added support for profiling applications that make use of Vulkan and OpenGL interoperability.
    • Users can select the API to profile in the Range Profiler to focus on profiling a particular API.
  • Increased Performance when Running RTX Applications
    • Tracking options for acceleration structure builds have been changed and a more performant default option is offered. Projects using the previous tracking mode will be updated to the new equivalents.
    • Users are now warned when their acceleration structure build patterns interfere with the analysis and are offered guidance on how to improve their compatibility with Nsight Graphics.
  • Added the Nsight Aftermath SDK to the Nsight Graphics package
    • Aftermath is a simple library you integrate into your DirectX 12 game’s crash reporter to generate GPU "mini-dumps" when a TDR or exception occurs
    • For more information about Nsight Aftermath, see https://developer.nvidia.com/nsight-aftermath


    • Added the ability to export the resources view resource list to CSV
    • Vulkan descriptor sets view can filter descriptor sets that are not currently bound
