Profiling VR Games and Applications for Optimum Performance
Kevin Hawkins (Qualcomm)

Maximizing the gaming experience on a VR headset requires more than innovative technology and gameplay. The gaming experience is equally affected by a game's ability to manage power consumption and avoid device heat ups. These factors can impact a game's success by limiting game performance and creating an unplayable mobile experience. In this session, you'll learn how to improve power and thermal efficiency while achieving maximum performance for your VR game or app. Analyze and optimize your VR games and applications by exposing detailed CPU, GPU, and system data to reveal your game's power and performance characteristics. In addition, you can understand how other apps or background processes may be impacting performance, giving you a complete picture of system performance.
