The European Union funded LPGPU2 initiative for helping to extend the mobile battery life of systems by delivering more power efficient code for GPUs has formally announced their open-source tool-set today.

The LPGPU2 tooling is intended to help developers create more power efficient code for GPUs by identifying power and performance bottlenecks. The LGPU2 focus is primarily on low-power/mobile graphics processors.

With a multi-API video player, as an example, they were able to deliver performance gains up to 25% and energy use reduced up to 25% as well.

Their tool suite for analysis is based upon AMD's open-source CodeXL program. The code is open-source on GitHub.

More details on this LPGPU2 work via today's press release.
