NVIDIA® Nsight™ Visual Studio Edition 5.5 is available for download under the NVIDIA Registered Developer Program.

The new release of Nsight Visual Studio Edition 5.5 brings developers unprecedented application development capabilities:

  • The graphics debugger introduces Pixel History for DirectX 11 & OpenGL, extends support to OpenVR 1.0.10, plus improves Vulkan support and Range Profiler accuracy and efficiency.

This new debugging architecture extends Nsight’s capabilities to the latest Volta GPUs, while providing a seamless, homogeneous debugging experience on GPU kernels and native CPU code.

Customizable profiler results, including source, disassembly, kernel execution flowchart, and memory throughput, can be filtered, compared, annotated, and exported.
  • Nsight 5.5 also supports the latest CUDA 9.1 Toolkit and Windows 10 RS3.
