GPU Busy in CapFrameX

Intel PresentMon Beta, which was announced by the company last week, has already been implemented by CapFrameX tool.

Intel recently unveiled an upgraded edition of its PresentMon software, a popular tool among graphics enthusiasts, gamers, and reviewers for tracking frame times in games. This software has been seamlessly integrated into various third-party applications, enhancing its data collection and analysis capabilities. One noteworthy example is CapFrameX, which has become the preferred choice for numerous reviewers aiming to amass comprehensive data.

CapFrameX wasted no time in announcing its intention to incorporate the latest version of PresentMon, and this update has now been rolled out. This new iteration boasts the inclusion of PresentMon 1.9.0, representing Intel’s cutting-edge beta release of the tool.

This marks the new chapter in GPU measurement as it includes the new metric called GPU Busy, which is shown in the software as GPU Active Time. GPU Busy measures how much time the GPU spends on rendering each frame, in milliseconds. It can help identify whether game performance is limited by the CPU or the GPU, and how well they are balanced. Taking things a step further, CapFrameX introduces another metric, GPU Busy Deviation, which gauges system balance. When this metric approaches zero, it suggests a well-balanced system, in any other scenario it indicates that the rendering is CPU or GPU-limited.

One important note is that to view these graphs and metrics within a game, users are required to install Riva Tuner Statistics Server (RTSS), the platform through which CapFrameX interfaces to display its data. Without this software, CapFrameX will only collect data in the background, but will still be able to plot the graphs afterward (as shown on the right side above).

The updated tool is now available for download as version 1.7.2 beta.
