  • Hello,

    The performance Analysis in Visual Studio 11 offers very detailed profiling information. It allows to identify quickly which function is taking more time and shows statistics about application execution. You can already experiment with it in the VS11 expess edition installed in the developer preview.

    As explained in the "Taming GPU compute with C++ AMP":  http://channel9.msdn.com/events/BUILD/BUILD2011/TOOL-802T, the final version of the environment will show statistics on the execution of multiple threads and their distibution on the CPUs, as it was possible in VS 2010. And also monitor the execution of the C++ AMP threads running on the GPU, please watch the presentation for details. 

    Thank You,

  • Have you tried CodeAnalyst (http://developer.amd.com/tools/CodeAnalyst/Pages/default.aspx) which integrates in Visual Studio and is free? However, I did not try it with VS 2011 - you can give it a try :)

    Although it is from AMD, most of it also works with Intel chipsets.
