streak writes "After looking around at some profilers for AMD chips (I'm currently developing on Windows .NET so oprofile, dtrace, and other open source profilers are out) like AMD's CodeAnalyst and Microsoft's .NET Profiler, I've seen nothing that even comes close to being useful for function timing, call graphs, and the like. I'm not looking for micro-optimization (i.e. assembly tweaking - I am after all in .NET), but more for macro-optimization (identifying slow functions, reducing number of repeated calls to functions, etc). What I'm comparing all these tools to is VTune (which is Intel only). What do people use for profiling on AMD systems on Windows? Do you develop on an Intel box, do macro-optimization with VTune, and then just run that code on the AMD system?"
