NVIDIA Nsight™ Visual Studio Edition 5.3 - being shown at GDC 2017 - will soon be available for download in the NVIDIA Registered Developer Program.

This release adds OpenVR support alongside the current Oculus SDK support for virtual reality development in Direct3D and OpenGL applications. Vive and Oculus demos will be on display at the NVIDIA booth.

We’ll also be showing off Nsight’s frame debugging and profiling on laptops using Windows 10 Hybrid mode.

If performance is what you crave, check out OpenGL and Direct3D trace and profiling accuracy and efficiency improvements and new support for simultaneous compute and graphics workloads.

While you’re there, ask about other workflow improvements including:

  • Screen shot of the rendered image now included in frame captures
  • Filtering of resources and events
  • Initiating profiling on an event range from the Frame Debugger’s Event’s view
  • Initiating profiling on an event from the Scrubber View
  • Normalizing textures and render targets from the HUD
