The AMD Radeon GPU Detective (RGD) is AMD's powerful new developer tool for post-mortem analysis of GPU crashes on Windows (TDRs). In this session you will learn about these types of failures - when they occur, why they are difficult to debug, and how RGD can help to quickly narrow down the search for a crash's root cause.

You will learn how to capture and analyze AMD GPU crash dumps from crashing games, and how to interpret the information in the Crash Analysis reports that the tool generates. You will also hear a story about a specific crash in a game that the tool helped to investigate and fix.
