Now available as part of the Radeon™ Developer Tool Suite.

Radeon™ Memory Visualizer (RMV) is a tool to allow you to gain a deep understanding of how your application uses memory for graphics resources.

Download the latest version - v1.9

This release adds the following features:

  • Improved resource list sorting.
  • Implicit resource detection for heap resources.
  • Improved “Filter by size” sliders shown with min and max values.
  • Named virtual allocations.
  • The default timeline has been changed to “Virtual memory heap” and the “Committed memory” timeline view has been removed.
  • Other improvements and bug


By instrumenting every level of our Radeon™ driver stack, RMV is able to understand the full state of your application’s memory allocation at any point during your application’s life.

Obliterate oversubscription

The quick, simple interface tells you if you are over-subscribing a heap, and how the driver stack has reacted. Quickly find resources which are not in the optimal heaps.

Rethink your resources

Understand which resources require the most memory, which heaps they are in, and how your heaps are sub-allocated. Rapidly detect patterns in how your application is behaving.

Track your resources by name

Use the DirectX® 12 or Vulkan® API to customize the names of your resources then search and view the details in the Resource list.

Appreciate your allocations

Look for fragmentation, and understand how you are managing memory in each heap you create. Understand the balance between dedicated and placed resources.

Make good those memory leaks!​

Easily find memory leaks in your application by comparing snapshots.

Profile that paging

Dig into how resources have been treated over their lifetime. Understand how the operating system and driver have managed the physical backing for your resources, including paging during times of heap over subscription.

Radeon Developer Tool Suite

The RDP provides a communication channel with the Radeon™ Adrenalin driver. It generates event timing data used by the Radeon™ GPU Profiler (RGP), and the memory usage data used by the Radeon™ Memory Visualizer (RMV).

Radeon™ Memory Visualizer (RMV) is a tool to allow you to gain a deep understanding of how your application uses memory for graphics resources.

AMD Radeon GPU Profiler

RGP gives you unprecedented, in-depth access to a GPU. Easily analyze graphics, async compute usage, event timing, pipeline stalls, barriers, bottlenecks, and other performance inefficiencies.

Radeon GPU Analyzer is an offline compiler and performance analysis tool for DirectX®, Vulkan®, SPIR-V™, OpenGL® and OpenCL™.
