    Profiler doesn't seem to be open source. It's a blob. Also, do you know if it works with radv?

      There seem to be source archives... doesn't that count as open even if we also offer pre-built binaries ?

      EDIT - looks like the source archives only contain documentation source, not program source. D'oh !!

        But the actual source is not available, so it's not open? Or I'm missing something? That "source" bundle is just for some documentation, not for the actual binary.

        I was trying to understand, if Stadia is using radv or amdvlk. And from this AMD press release, it looks like Stadia is intended to be backed by AMD GPU profiler. If it doesn't work with radv, then Stadia is using amdvlk.

        I also see a request to open source the profiler (issue #1 in fact): https://github.com/GPUOpen-Tools/Rad...filer/issues/1

          Yeah, you're right. I saw "source archive" and thought, you know, "source archive"

          Updated previous post accordingly.

            May be you can ping someone inside AMD about actually opening it? Is it one of those "legal review slowness" cases, or AMD doesn't want to open it for some specific reason?
