1. What is Intel GPA (Graphics Performance Analyzers)?
Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers (Intel® GPA) are a suite of software tools providing in-depth application analysis and the flexibility for customization to help game developers pinpoint bottlenecks and optimize games for Intel® Integrated Graphics–based PCs. Use Intel GPA to reach new customers and prepare your software for the future of mobile gaming.

2. What are the GPA system requirements?
GPA requires a PC with 1GHz or faster processor, 512MB RAM (1GB recommended), 100MB for the final product and 5GB free disk space for installation, and Microsoft Windows XP* OS 32 bit edition with Service Pack 3, or Microsoft Windows Vista* (32 or 64 bit version) with Service Pack 1.

3. Why do I want to use GPA?
The Intel GPA tool offers many benefits to developers including support for Intel Integrated Graphics-based PCs, in-depth analysis tools, an intuitive user interface, the ability to customize test libraries, and a remote analysis capability that eliminates processing overhead. Perhaps most important for developers, the Intel GPA tool allows them to quickly and efficiently identify bottlenecks in their games, enabling games to play well on a broader range of PCs, growing the opportunity for sales

4. Who is your intended target audience for Intel GPA?
Currently GPA is targeted for Game developers on IIG While GPA was developed specifically with input from game developers, there is nothing preventing developers from using the tools to analyze the performance of other visual computing applications.
