Getting Started with Application Analysis in PVRTune

Analysis is a vital part of improving an application's performance through identification of potential optimisation opportunities

There are several potential benefits to analysing an application using PVRTune:

  • Improved frame rate, which increases end-user enjoyment and application responsiveness.
  • Reduction in render time, gaining more idle time, and therefore saving power.
  • Increase in visual quality (with an associated increase in render time) without sacrificing frame rate.

The most effective analysis is largely driven by the ability to identify application bottlenecks (see Identifying Bottlenecks).

This section will go through what needs to be known in order to begin analysing applications with PVRTune.
