Arm Mobile Studio 2020.0 now available

We are pleased to announce the release of Arm Mobile Studio 2020.0, which now includes Performance Advisor, enabling you to generate an easy-to-read performance summary from a Streamline capture. Get quick insights about why your application might be running slow or causing a device to overheat, and what you can do about it. We've added support for Arm's Cortex-A34 and Cortex-A77 CPUs, and Mali-G57 and Mali-G77 GPUs. This release also includes several usability improvements for a smoother experience when capturing data with Streamline, Graphics Analyzer and Mali Offline Compiler.

Performance optimization for Android apps 

Arm Mobile Studio is a free-to-use performance analysis tool suite that automatically analyzes the CPU activity, GPU activity and content metrics of your game, to help you identify and fix the problems that might cause your game to run slowly, overheat the device or quickly drain battery. Deep-dive into problem areas, by visualizing all performance data in the system and trace your graphics API calls to determine exactly where rendering defects occur. Arm Mobile Studio works with non-rooted devices, so setup is fast, and no device modification is required. It can also provide a scalable solution for game studios looking to avoid expensive refactoring by building performance analysis into a regular continuous integration workflow.

What's in Arm Mobile Studio

Profile and debug your game on a non-rooted Android device.

  1. Use Performance Advisor to generate an easy-to-read performance summary from an annotated Streamline capture, and get actionable advice about how to optimize your game or app.

  2. Use Streamline to capture a performance profile for deep-dive analysis, using all of the performance data in the system. Measure peaks in performance for the CPU, GPU and bandwidth and then see which code was being executed during that time.

  3. Use Graphics Analyzer to debug Open GL ES and Vulkan API calls in your application, to identify rendering defects and investigate problem scenes to improve performance. Analyze overdraw, shaders, textures and fragment counts, draw call by draw call.

  4. Use Mali Offline Compiler to check how your shader programs would perform on a range of Mali GPUs. Get an approximate cycle cost breakdown for the major functional units in the design.

Integrated performance reports

with Arm Mobile Studio Professional Edition

Regular performance reports enable you to get instant feedback throughout your development cycle. With an Arm Mobile Studio Professional license, Performance Advisor can generate machine-readable JSON reports, that you can import into your existing performance regression tracking systems. Automatically generate a nightly report and compare metrics between runs to quickly determine which changes impacted performance.
