This blog post is about PVRTune, the PowerVR hardware performance analysis tool included in the PowerVR Graphics SDK. PVRTune collects performance data in real-time to get a very detailed view of what is the GPU doing (again, in real time). This helps you identify the bottlenecks in your render, regardless of how obscure they might be. Further recommended reading I
