The new gDEBugger V4.1 adds Geometry Shaders Support, and enables developers to view allocated geometry shader objects, shaders source code and properties. It also allows to Edit and Continue shaders “on the fly”. A new ATI (AMD) performance metrics integration was added, supporting the new ATI driver performance metrics infrastructure. This integration enables users to view ATI performance metrics such as hardware utilization, vertex wait for pixel, pixel wait for vertex, overdraw and more. These performance metrics together with gDEBugger’s Performance Analysis Toolbar provide a powerful solution for locating graphic system performance bottlenecks. gDEBugger, an OpenGL and OpenGL ES debugger and profiler, traces application activity on top of the OpenGL API, lets programmers see what is happening within the graphic system implementation to find bugs and optimize OpenGL application performance. gDEBugger runs on Windows and Linux operating systems.
