NVIDIA Corporation today announced NVPerfKit 2.1, a comprehensive suite of next-generation performance tools for the debugging and profiling of OpenGL and Direct3D software applications for Windows and Linux.

Essentially developers working on 32-bit and 64-bit Linux or Windows platforms can now benefit from the same technology that powers the NVIDIA NVPerfHUD performance analysis tool, a robust profiling and visual debugging heads-up display (HUD) program for Direct3D applications supporting Microsoft DirectX 9.0c and Windows XP on select NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs). Developers using NVPerfHUD 4 experience an average performance improvement of 35%, and find an average of 11 rendering bugs.

NVPerfKit 2.1 supports Windows XP and Linux on NVIDIA® GeForce® 7 Series GPUs, NVIDIA GeForce 6 Series GPUs, and NVIDIA Quadro® FX or more recent NVIDIA GPUs; older GPUs are supported with reduced functionality.


The NVPerfKit 2.1 suite of performance tools is available for download here

Which Server??

19-10-2006, 18:27:11

no server has been picked or setup yet, want to see what numbers we have 1st to see if we need a 32slot or less and am sure it'll be less, prob a 16slot one.

once numbers are confirmed ill start about getting it all sorted. Can you all post what nights you free + time in both US-UK Time just to make it easy. Server will prob be UK based but if we have more US players they a US box would be best.
