To run the plugin sample from the Unigine SDK Browser, press the GPU Monitor plugin button on the Plugin Samples tab.

GPU Information

The following information is available for GPU:

Graphics Core clock, i.e. frequency, at which the GPU is running.
Memory Memory clock, i.e. how fast the GPU memory is running.
Processor Shader clock, i.e. how fast the shaders operate.
Temperature GPU temperature.

The table below demonstrates which information is shown for different GPUs:

GPU Graphics Memory Processor Temperature
NVIDIA
AMD
Intel not supported not supported not supported not supported
Notice
On devices running Mac OS X, only Temperature is displayed.

Launching GPUMonitor

To use the plugin, specify the extern_plugin command line option on the start-up:

Shell commands
main_x86d -extern_plugin "GPUMonitor"

Also you can create a new project with the GPU Monitor plugin enabled by checking the GPU frequencies and temperature monitoring option on the New Project tab of the Unigine SDK Browser.

To hide or show the GPUMonitor plugin information while running the application, use the show_gpu console command.
