I would like to ask if Code Analyst could function as an alternative to Intel's Vtune Performance Analyzer since the latter does not support my AMD DC processor. I was trying to use the /Qssp coomand option (Software-based Speculative Pre-computation (SSP) optimization, which is also called Helper-Threading optimization), which requires a proftool using IVTPA to collect hardware profile information. I'm compiling a multi-threaded game engine C++ code and still looking for more optimiza9aside from the basic PGO).
If it is the same, can it be used too in the ICC 10 compiler or just with MSVC 2005/2008. I haven't tried it yet. I'm just trying to collect some infos. Thanks.
