Nsight Compute profiling CUDA 10.1 Task Graphs

OpenGL and Vulkan interoperability on the Graphics Debugger

Next-Gen CUDA Debugger with PTX+SASS source code correlation showing the state at a kernel breakpoint

NVIDIA® Nsight™ Visual Studio Edition 2019.2 is now available with these features and improvements:

Graphics Debugging

    Range Profiler keeps getting better
    • Vulkan support — Inspect GPU performance metrics for whole perfmarker regimes, render passes, and single events
    • DXR BuildRayTracingAccelerationStructure calls can now be profiled
    • New Range Profiler Preview
      • Configure sections to customize the profiling experience
      • Introduce rules to create warnings based on GPU performance counter values within the configurable Range Profiler
    Acceleration Structure Viewer enhanced
    • Configure camera speed and camera orientation
    • Visualize geometry setup flags by utilizing highlight-based filtering
    • AABB and bounding box visualization
    API Inspector improved
    • Event number and performance markers are now visible in the API Inspector for greater event context
    • Trimmed Direct3D 11 and Direct3D 12 strings in the API Inspector to increase information density
    New Direct3D 12 Meshlets NVAPI Added support for Mesh Shaders in D3D12 via NVAPI
