PVRMonitor allows a user to view real-time hardware performance stats, giving information about processor usage on the CPU and PowerVR graphics hardware (Series5, Series5XT, Series6) with negligible impact on performance. The data is presented as a bar graph, updated in real time and overlaid on top of currently running applications.

PVRMonitor gives immediate feedback on an application's performance, without having to connect to an external profiling tool such as PVRTune.

Stats shown by the application include:


The PVRMonitor binary can be downloaded from Google Play or through the PowerVR Graphics SDK installer.
