NVIDIA® Linux Graphics Debugger 2.3 is now available for download in the NVIDIA Registered Developer Program.
Version 2.3 extends support to the latest Volta GPUs for the GPU Frame Debugger, Performance Dashboard, and Range Profiler. We also added Vulkan 1.0 frame debugging and OpenGL Pixel History support as well as Range Profiler improvements. This, along will a number of bug fixes and workflow improvements makes version 2.3 the best Linux Graphics Debugger yet.
The NVIDIA® Linux Graphics Debugger has been updated with these exciting new features:
v2.3 Features and Improvements:
- Vulkan 1.0 support for the GPU Frame Debugger.
- OpenGL Pixel History allows you to analyze every event that contributes to the final rendered pixel.
- Range Profiler performance and accuracy enhancements, providing improved instant GPU throughput analysis.
- Volta GPU support for the GPU Frame Debugger, Performance Dashboard, and Range Profiler.
- Centos 7.4 support added
v2.2 Features and Improvements:
- Visualize draw call batching efficiency using the new Batch Histogram View
- View query object results and conditional rendering results in the API Inspector View
- Enhanced visual experience with new Color Theme and timeline unit selection support
- Improved Frame Capture Serialization with new options
- New Insert Clear command on the Target View helps visually isolate the event actions that follow
