NVIDIA --
NVIDIA on Friday released Nsight Graphics 2020.3 as the newest version of their proprietary tool for profiling and debugging Direct3D / Vulkan / OpenGL / OpenVR software.

One of the big changes with Nsight Graphics 2020.3 is now supporting the VK_KHR_ray_tracing extension, the official Vulkan ray-tracing extension compared to the prior NVIDIA-specific vendor extension. Nsight Graphics can now capture and profile VK_KHR_ray_tracing using software and export it to a C++ capture.

Nsight Graphics 2020.3 also adds a CLI tool for report generation, visualization improvements, C++ capture build times for large captures is much lower, and a variety of other improvements.

More details on Nsight Graphics 2020.3 over on NVIDIA Developer News.
