Profile Vulkan on non Turing-class GPU


I’m trying to profile my Vulkan application using the NVIDIA Nsight Graphics tool, but I get the following error message:

Vulkan profiling requires a Turing-class GPU or later

See also the screenshot:

My GPU is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with Max-Q Design. Is support for GPUs like mine coming in the future? Or is there an alternative tool I can use? Or am I stuck having to buy a new graphics card?


We currently do not support Vulkan using Nsight Graphics on GTX 1060. You would need to move to at least a Volta chip in order to Profile Vulkan applications with Nsight Graphics.

Allright, thanks for the reply!
